Jay Pavlina thinks you are Dumb

Exploding Rabbit owner Jay Pavlina wrote a lengthy FAQ about Super Retro Squad (now called Super Action Squad) in response to the large amount of negative feedback he has been getting related to the Kickstarter scam.



The problem with the FAQ is that Jay Pavlina assumes his backers and supporters are dumb, like very dumb. He actually included the cost of people's rent and utilities in the budget for the game, seriously? Now in case you missed what he did here, the question you need to ask is if Exploding Rabbit pays for the one team member who does not live in the house's rent and utilities. Meaning, does Jay Pavlina or Exploding Rabbit cut that team member a monthly check for their rent and utilities? My guess would be a definitive NO. There is not a single game company or other company on earth that pays your rent and utilities, a company your employed with pays you a salary that you use as you wish.

Thus, his entire argument and statements here are designed to defraud you the backers and supporters. Maybe even to defraud his own employees! The game should have been made remotely but Jay Pavlina wanted backers to buy him a house which is a pretty sweet deal if you can find people dumb enough to fall for it. Please be informed and don't fall for nonsense like this, ask the right questions!

The FAQ does not have a section to post comments so you can't even discus it! Luckily you can discus it right here, anonymously if you choose!

  3. I'm surprised nobody caught this earlier to be honest. That is the state of America though. We watch more sitcoms and eat more McDonalds and slowly turn to mush. Hell our government is literally shut down right now. I didn't know a government could shut down but meh.

    1. Sorry its me again. You probably want to hurry cause they have to be burning through that cash on the house. Here's my advise

      1) Get a refund for the never delivered super retro squad.
      2) Immediately put refund into backing mighty 9
      3) Smile and feel warm and fuzzy!

    2. You know. Its called Mighty NUMBER 9 right? Also, it was funded on Oct 1.

      Delete
    3. I backed mighty no.9 and I am looking forward to it

      Delete
    4. Actually its called Mighty No. 9 and I backed to. They don't have "NUMBER" actually in the name, its just "No." like your comment hahaha ;)

      See what I did there???

    5. Can a mod or admin please delete this? Seriously it is clearly spam and borderline offensive and has NOTHING (read NOTHING AT ALL) to do with this post so why is it here?

    6. If you didn't want to be watched you would have been in another room ;) Tell the truth you wanted to be watched!

      On a side note what the hell does this have to do with this blog?

  8. Like the guy above said, why did nobody question this.

  9. I feel I should probably make a minor correction.
    There's a talk page. I agree that it isn't very easy to spot, but it's there. You need an account on the forums to post on it though, so that might be a deterrent.
    Also why do you insist on calling it Super Adventure Squad when it's Super Action Squad?

    1. lol well if its hard to find and you need to register for an account and have jay track your ip address and very essence then its useless. I think you missed that the point of this blog is to talk openenly but then again you know that cause you posted anonymously ;) I bet it was a lot easier then registering and bunch of bs to just be tracked by jay.

      I didn't even notice that he calls the new name of the game wrong but then again who cares it will probably change like 56 more times if the game even continues being worked on.

      Personally I call it super ass-to-mouth squad!

    2. I just wanted to make sure you knew you had the option :P
      I can confirm that super mods and above are able to see people's IP addresses, but I don't know that they use them for evil purposes. I do know of a case where they used IP addresses to track down an impersonator, but more than that I do not know.
      Also if you're going to tell people that a game's a scam (I'm not saying it isn't but I'm not saying it is), you might as well name it correctly.

    3. Thanks for pointing out the incorrect name.

      Delete
    4. I probably should've mentioned there's a Disqus comment section on the blog page as well.

      Delete
    5. Also, may I ask how you managed to input an incorrect name in the first place?

      Delete
    6. I'm going way out on a limb and going to say with a keyboard.

      Oh and disqus comments? There's no such thing.

      Delete
    7. What do you mean, there's no such thing?

  10. Hmmm but how do you assume the blog owner can't see "anonymous" ip addresses??? Is it "really" anonymous?

    1. I can't see your ip address, no matter how you post. I can only see the name you use, the comment and the date it was posted. Don't believe me then sign up for a free Blogger account and check for yourself.

  11. Do the mates in the flat live free or do the have to pay ration?

  12. Clearly someone would fall for it because of the bar graph.....

  13. Also I don't know why I forgot to say this earlier, but there is a very slight chance (sarcasm) that maybe he wanted the FAQ to be understood by everyone, and maybe, just maybe, "everyone" includes idiots.

    1. Yeah, I mean Mario-Fan you seem to be very dedicated to Jay Pavlina though he doesn't pay you anything. Now, assuming you read this post, just answer this, is what he wrote about making the game remotely fraud or not? The blogger outlined pretty powerful points that I pretty much guarantee you can't disagree with.

      I sure agree the FAQ was made for idiots, specifically to take advantage of them. An idiot for example would have actually believed that it "cost" more for people not to live in that love shack of his.

      Why don't you go find out 1) if he pays for that one persons rent and 2) do the people who live in the house have to pay rent or are they rent free.

      Go off and do that then let's have an intelligent argument. ok?

      I mean you do seem to have a decent head on your shoulders so it is odd that actually fall for his crap and defend him so strongly when you get nothing out of it....

      Delete
    2. >I seem to be very dedicated
      I gave him money, sure, but I don't have very much to give money to. This happened and I thought why the hell not.
      Also I ended up being the member on the forums with the most posts *and* the go-to guy for Wiki stuff purely by accident. That kinda seems like dedication I guess.
      >An idiot would have believed that it costs more to live in different houses
      It seems illogical to me to not have a discount for multiple people living in the same house, but then again, life isn't logical. When people talk about assholes being abnormal, they're actually wrong, it's normal. Illogical, see?
      >Go find that stuff
      Yeah, I don't know, I have no idea how to word stuff like that being aspie and all, so may I request a professional like you to do so?
      >Let's have an intelligent argument
      I suck at arguments.
      >I have a decent head on my shoulders
      Not bad for a 14-year-old :P
      Well okay, I can do some basic (not the lanugage) programming in five-ish different languages, but I really didn't think I was any good otherwise.
      >I get nothing out of it
      What I get out of it is a community that I enjoy being in.
      Okay that wasn't relevant at all.
      Whatever, basically I want to wait and see before I ask for a refund.

    3. Oh by the way how do you know Jay doesn't pay me anything? ;)

    4. I almost wish I didn't say that, because it was the 43rd comment. Sorry Deep Thought.
