Highsec Miner Grab Bag #9

We've been focusing a lot on Tolle of late, so let's take a quick break from that and enjoy a little miscellany. It's healthy. The Grab Bag of random miner tears is just what the doctor ordered!


I knew it was coming, you knew it was coming... So I decided to just get the Hitler references out of the way right from the start.


I still don't see the resemblance, to be honest. Churchill, Gandhi, maybe even Caesar, but I'm certainly no fascist.


Of all the miners I feel sorry for, I feel the most sorry for miners who have never read MinerBumping dot com.


Judith OrphanKiller asserts, without any evidence, that the majority are not enthused about the New Order. Where are these statistics coming from? I want to see these statistics. If they show anything less than a majority of highsec supporting me, I want to have a look at the cross-tabs, too.


Peter XZ brings up an interesting point. I am also kind of like the James Bond of EVE, when you really think about it.


Gexcolo posits his own theory of the Code's origin. This is why miners need to stop thinking bad thoughts about the Code; it leads to all kinds of inaccuracies.


Now this is why the Code really exists. People like Hoban 'Wash'Washburne are so lost.


This guy is a walking, talking game of Miner Bingo. His comment reminds of that goofball miner who said "My identity is defined as a father, a husband, and a businessman". Sometimes I'll copy-pasta his stuff into local when miners call me a kid playing from my mother's basement. I bump from a "custom-built home office and hotels all over the United States!"


Agent BillMurray has earned plenty of accolades over the course of his acting career. But Meganium Shakra pointed out a major flaw: Anyone can add stuff to a Wikipedia page!


Meanwhile, Chrysta Sharisa developed an entirely original space lawyer argument: It's against the EULA to impersonate an actor. Bill didn't need to take any of their guff. He knows who he is. His identity is defined as an actor, a comedian, and a miner-bumper.


Ice miner omega seiffe lamented his inability to mine in peace under the new regime. That's what happens when you violate the Code. No justice, no peace.


It's true, I am a very nice person. The reason I enforce the rules is that I care about the miners' well-being. I'm not here to be the miners' friend. I am their friend, but I also have to lay down the law. Miners have many friends, but they only have one Supreme Protector.

      These miners would beg to differ, my friend.

    2. Why so serious? It's a game, bumping miners is hardly genocide. If you really want to compare James to a genocidal maniac there is always Chairman Mao and Joseph Stalin, both of whom make Hitler look like a rank amateur, and did so more recently than him to.

  2. I'll agree with the miners. There is no proof that Agent BillMurray is in fact Actor Bill Murray in real life. Until such non-manipulated evidence is provided, I will not believe that he's an actor.

    Also, the tears in this post weren't that good.

    1. I regularly link to my IMDB page with every Minerbumping.com comment I make, which you can see by clicking my name. I can guarantee there is no illuminati involved in the making of that page, nor did I acquire the skills to hack webpages by reliving the same day over and over.

    2. And fortunately for our esteemed Celebrity, it isn't in us to question him. We are an honest folk and take him for his word.

  3. On a completely unrelated note, I just saw on the EVE-O forums that someone has spotted 89 bots in an Ice Field in Agal. Perhaps you could take a look at the situation and educate the owner of said 89 bots?

    1. At least in my eyes, the New Order is more a prevention than a cure. Their time is better spent focusing on saving bot-aspirants from themselves than trying to deal with those who have already succumbed to the evils of botting.

  4. This thread bring up an interesting point. Over the countless entries and posts I've read, I've seen people question identities. Be it our Supreme Protector's identity, or anyone thought to be his alt. Even people who post here as Anonymous...

    With that said... we don't need to be identified. We don't NEED to belong to any sort of group or coalition, alliance, chat or corporation.

    We are the likeminded minority of people who have stood up for the common good. From all regions, creeds, and races. Whereas I do not mind not wearing a mask (I sign all my posts), I do however like NOT having to put my name as a heading (unless I can register as Anonymous; James?).

    So I found it extremely funny to be lumped in with fascists, bigots, and all sorts of cultural epithets(spelling) that are known to be of one specific race/reigion/etc since obviously we are not.

    We have a Celibrity, a pirate, someone I can only thing of as an aspiring "Hulk" (pootisman FTW!) and the silent many.

    As much as the Order brings dislike, I would like to reference the name of "Anonymous" by saying the closest thing you could call us.. would be an icemining version of "hacktivists" since all we do is go to an area, and picket the robotic sheep-minded bot-aspirant fellows who think they know more about us than us ourselves.

    I will admit, this is of course partly backed by someone commenting on one of my comments about me sounding like a Scientologist... but interesting notion in of itself just the same.

    So there you have it I guess.

    1. Your rant about prejudicial stereotyped insults would be much less ironic if you refrained from using them to describe miners.

      "I found it extremely funny to be lumped in with fascists, bigots, and all sorts of cultural epithets(spelling) that are known to be of one specific race/reigion/etc "

      "all we do is go to an area, and picket the robotic sheep-minded bot-aspirant fellows"

      i.e., you know the people in that one specific 'reigion' to be 'all sorts of cultural epithets'

      good stuff :)

    2. EXACTLY, now you see the irony. Because I too, am a miner as well as an Agent! Athough it isn't a rant, just an observation. You should really read through the blog entries and see how people communicate through their hatred and aggressiveness. It's quite amusing.

      On that note, I must point out that you made zero sense in what you said. 2 different parts of a conversation, talking about different things, yet not only did you lump them together, you did so in a wrong order.

      I really still do not understand your point or reason why you quoted me. But thank you for the recognition I guess.

    3. "Because I too, am a miner as well as an Agent!"

      Irrelevant.

      "Athough it isn't a rant, just an observation."

      No, it's a rant.

      "2 different parts of a conversation, talking about different things, yet not only did you lump them together, you did so in a wrong order. "

      Nothing was 'lumped'. Sorry that a direct comparison is over your head, as that's the simplest logical structure. If they were in the wrong order, then that's your bad, as I quoted them in the order they appeared.

      "I really still do not understand your point or reason why you quoted me. "

      No, I suppose you wouldn't.

    4. "Nothing was 'lumped'. Sorry that a direct comparison is over your head, as that's the simplest logical structure. If they were in the wrong order, then that's your bad, as I quoted them in the order they appeared."

      Let's find out!

      Anon's quote of me- ""I found it extremely funny to be lumped in with fascists, bigots, and all sorts of cultural epithets(spelling) that are known to be of one specific race/reigion/etc "

      "all we do is go to an area, and picket the robotic sheep-minded bot-aspirant fellows"

      i.e., you know the people in that one specific 'reigion' to be 'all sorts of cultural epithets'/end


      Murk's original post in reference- "So I found it extremely funny to be lumped in with fascists, bigots, and all sorts of cultural epithets(spelling) that are known to be of one specific race/reigion/etc since obviously we are not. (PART ONE)

      We have a Celibrity, a pirate, someone I can only thing of as an aspiring "Hulk" (pootisman FTW!) and the silent many.

      As much as the Order brings dislike, I would like to reference the name of "Anonymous" by saying the closest thing you could call us.. would be an icemining version of "hacktivists" since all we do is go to an area, and picket the robotic sheep-minded bot-aspirant fellows who think they know more about us than us ourselves.(PART TWO)"

      Please be more concise if you are going to kneejerk and pick apart something someone else says. Context matters. Yes they were lumped, and yes they were unrelated; the 2 quotes you used.

      And you are correct, you would suppose I wouldn't understand what you are saying as I am not in your head, I cannot understand your point of view. Therefore, your deliverance of said content again, makes no sense.

      And no, it isn't a rant. I am not mad, I am not insulted or injured or anything other than bored at work. I don't even read or post here while I'm at home.

      Oh, and to add, I do believe it is relevant (not to be contrary or argumentative) that I am both a miner and an Agent since that's what this topic is all about. Pots, kettles, and a certain color that's a lack thereof.

      Thank you for the time invested in this awesome website sir. Your support of the Code is I'm sure, appreciated!

    5. I just wanted to add that I am more than happy for you to vent out your frustrations out on me if you need to, even if we both do not agree on whatever it is frustrating you.

    6. You seem frustrated, Murk. Why don't you keep venting instead?

    7. LOL. Saturday before a huge storm makes for dull worktimes!

    8. I'm glad posting walls of text telling others to "be more concise" eases your frustration with your job. One less person going postal.

  5. You can't kill the bot plague.
