I don't normally post these kind of things but it feels like I'm being dragged into it. For a few years now I've been friends with somebody from another forum. Because he was a friend I gave him a key to beta test a project I'm working on and let him in on all the publishing side of things. These publishers told me to keep it all private and within the company walls, as it were. And these are some pretty high up publishers too and I, and everyone else, kept their word. But it seems this person grew a distaste for me a few months back and rather than confronting me started to sneak around various related websites posting the private information. Later he blurted out that I made all the publishing stuff up and started sowing the seeds that I was a liar to my peers. I asked him to stop and even got moderators involved to plug the leaks, but he's too immature to listen to reason and carries on. And if breaking that agreement wasn't bad enough he started posting past conversations we've had on these same sites, private ones that he deliberately butchered to harm relationships with some peers. So. I don't know why he's doing this, one friend said it was out of envy but I'm not sure. Thing is he was part of a small project which has grown considerably and has some publisher interest. His name was one of a few in the credits but he's sabotaged his position there. I don't know where to go from here. He's running around posting these conversations and leaking private information. I too have conversations I could post but that's something I won't even consider doing. He's blocked me from any form of communication we have so reasoning with him isn't going to be easy, even if he wasn't stark raving bonkers. What would you, jesus, chuck norris/whatever do?
