Adrian Cheok's meltdown

In late October 2018, Adrian Cheok went on a twitter tirade against various members of academia that were critical of how the Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology (ACE) committee was being run. This led to the creation of the #BoycottACE hashtag on Twitter.

German researcher Leif Oppermann questioned Adrian Cheok over David Levy's involvement on the ACE steering committee, and Levy ended up forwarding a series of documents to Cheok who passed them on the ACE committee. The documents turned out to be false, and showed that Levy lost the court case and owed £52,000 pounds to the claimants Paul Andrews and Chris Smith.

Oppermann pointed this out to Cheok, who then called the German researcher a Nazi, a tactic that comes straight out of the David Levy playbook after Levy falsely accused Paul Andrews of the same thing. Oppermann subsequently tweeted various emails between Cheok and himself, including various lies spread by David Levy.

While reading this Twitter abuse from Adrian Cheok, please remember that Cheok is in fact an adult, and not a spoilt teenager as you may suspect.
