One of the advantages of being the leader of a popular movement is that I get intel from people across the spectrum of EVE who support the cause. One of the ways you can become an Agent of the New Order is to provide me with information that you think might prove useful. It would be a cliché to say I have spies everywhere, but I have spies everywhere. Sometimes I get reports of the same incident from multiple spies, which helps confirm their accuracy. This is one of those reports.
After I won multiple battles in Kino, I logged out to go be awesome offline. Once I had departed, the Kino rebels burst into a heated, hours-long discussion about me. I would have had no idea this occurred, if it weren't for my little birds--who provided screen shots for your amusement.
In total disregard for the Code provision against it, the miners had been filing petitions against me. I suppose that's what happens when carebears are unable to defeat you in battle. To my face, miners love to tell me how ineffective I am. Behind my back, they tell another story: I'm an unstoppable force that must be permabanned for the sake of all EVE. After miners confessed to petitioning me--condemning themselves to the Red Pen list--someone got the idea that I might have logged off due to being banned.
Then the amazing part, which shows just how detached from reality highsec mining can make a person:
That's right, they thought I was banned because they had some trouble linking my name in local. Yes.
This isn't the first time miners have been gripped in the fever of such rumors. Recall that back in Kamio, after someone else bumped miners, thy assumed it was me trying to evade a ban. Now, thanks to the bizarre "I can't link his name" claim, the rumor spread like wildfire in Kino.
In filing the petitions, miners sent the GMs links to this website. Fine by me--I could use more Agents on the GM staff!
The miners continued to celebrate my alleged ban. I guess this next quote means I'm Abraham Lincoln?
And finally, this gem from a miner explaining why a ban was in my best interest:
Remember kids, highsec miners are the good guys! (Special thanks to the Agents who contributed to this report.)
