I've been wanting to make a thread about this for some time, but kept forgetting, lol.

For those who have never heard of this incident, some game developers decided to raise funds online through Kickstarter. Yet the game will likely never be finished now, because the game devs allegedly decided to use most of the money on liquor and strippers, according to Eric Tereshinski, a developer who has since left the team.

This seems to reveal a problem with online crowdfunding. The people who receive these funds may not be held accountable for embezzlement in the same way that a traditional NGO would.

The devs' actions likely disappointed and angered the gamers who paid them to make the game. This raises a lot of questions:
-Do you think this incident has reduced your confidence in online crowdfunding?
-Should the government or Kickstarter implement measures to monitor the use of funds raised online?
