When you talk about a person that goes out of his way to insult and ridicule collegues and customers, doesn't give a crap about his job and just uses it as an excuse to play videogames all day, and has never in his life even tried to be a decent and pleasant human being, than at that moment you really talk about the lowest of low life forms. There is no excuse for being lazy or intentionally ignorant.
Anyway, I'll try to reach out to a couple of former VEAO employees after christmas, to see if they want to go on record and give their side of the story about what happened. It must not have been easy for them, to continue coding/texturing on somebody else's work as a part-timer. It should be interesting to hear from them
