Potential Scam targetting Star Citizen Backers

There are a number of "commentators", "disgruntled ex-backers", and self-identified "rival developers" who are extremely vocal in their claim that Star Citizen is a scam or that Star Citizen is doomed, etc. The statements upon which they base these conclusions are nearly always either factually incorrect ("Star Citizen has nothing to show for it except hype" cw. the actually, playable test-environment on a massive scale - see http://diligence.tomasius.space) or amount to nothing more than pure sophistry ("You're a shill", "Don't listen to him, he's blinded by the hype.", etc. cw. the fact that if the facts supported their case, then the narrative would be about the facts instead of constantly trying to change the subject or derail the conversation). In its peddling of misinformation and use of sophistry to avoid discussion of inconvenient facts, the narrative of the Star Citizen Deniers proves to be patently dishonest.

Not only is the narrative of these Star Citizen deniers dishonestly propagated but it always amounts to the same oft-unspoken conclusion that, if you are a backer, you have lost the money you've backed and it is typically implied that you should be ashamed for having been so gullible. Only a scammer would consider it seemly or appropriate to shame someone for being scammed and that's exactly what the Star Citizen deniers get caught doing, time and time again. This is a classic emotional setup intended to goad one into a knee-jerk reaction revolving around how one would recover ones "losses" instead of looking more closely at the sophistry and easily exposed lies which underpin such claims. In short, I allege that the motive for all this revolves around the profit which can be made from the inflated resale of pledges purchased, by other identities used by some of the same people on the grey market, at far below the pledge prices.

If my assessment is accurate, then the people crying "Star Citizen is a scam" are themselves the scammers.
