Don't EVER trust anything about me on IRC. If you want to communicate with me, e-mail me, check Twitter, my site, anything BUT that.
That's absolutely ridiculous. NEVER believe anything you see, hear, or read about me on IRC. There are people in the PS3 IRC channels that impersonate me in an attempt to spread lies and make me look bad. I haven't been in any of those channels for many months for exactly that reason -- I don't feel like wasting all my time explaining how I didn't say the crap that people say in there. It's immature stuff like this that drives legitimate people off.
