Langdell gets IGDA membership revoked due to “lack of integrity or unethical behavior”

Karma’s a fun thing, isn’t it?

“The Board of Directors today voted to remove Tim Langdell from IGDA membership pursuant to our bylaws Article III. Section 6 (b) which states that any member may be removed from membership if the member has demonstrated a lack of integrity or unethical behavior, as determined by the Board of Directors,” read a post on the official International Game Developers Association blog.

This, of course, comes after Langdell’s dubious claim to all things “Edge” fought the law, and the law – happily enough – actually won.

Neither is this the beginning of Langdell’s falling out with the IGDA, which began in the strange, nearly forgotten Past Year of 2009, when Langdell resigned from the organization’s board of directors for “personal reasons.”

So we’d say that’s pretty much that, then. So long, Tim. Maybe next time don’t take up a hobby that makes an entire industry hate your guts? Just a thought.

    Fuck Langdell. I don’t like his face either. He looks like a camel with downs.

    Was not actually being a game developer not enough to kick him out of an association for game developers?

    He’s less of a Dude and more of a Dud, though.

    @Suikoden

    Langdell has been ordered, by a court, to write apologies to everyone effect by him being a dick.

    @onlineatron i mean the igda should also do so for being a cover for him for so long, if they had the balls to move sooner alot of damage and heartache could have been averted

    Has he truly lost his edge? By all that is edgy, this edgy situation is edging edgier and edgier.

    He should have never gotten such a position within the IGDA in the first place. It’s only when people did some checking they found out he was this slimeball, there one or two within the IGDA who were defending him up to a point as well.
