Last time, when the miners of Kino fell victim to a bizarre rumor that I had been banned from EVE, one disgruntled ice-slinger made a sly joke about how if I hadn't left the game, someone might have gotten upset enough about my bumping to murder me in real life.
But in the eyes of the ever-concerned miners of Kino, threats of bodily harm weren't posed merely by stalkers:
The good news is that I was never banned, so the issue of whether I might kill myself over it didn't need to be answered. This wasn't the first time the miners of Kino pondered the self-regicide of their Supreme Protector. A few days ago, when I indulged in a bit of AFK cloaking (a practice I often enjoy), some miners speculated about where I could have gone.
Perhaps the reason highsec miners are so fascinated by the idea of me killing myself is the old paradox: Can an Invincible Stabber be so invincible that it cannot be killed even by itself?
Fortunately for all concerned, I returned from my spell of AFK cloaking with wrists fully intact and neck unbroken. For the curious, I'm of the opinion that even if I initiated the self-destruct sequence on my ship, it would not explode. I haven't ever felt the need to try. I know that there is much important work to be done. How can I depart from this world while there are still miners in desperate need of my guidance?
Stay classy, Kino.
