For the past four months, hundreds of miners have petitioned me and my Agents for daring to bring change to highsec. Since the New Order is nice and legal, every petition has been denied. Yesterday, I wrote about a miner who paid an Agent 150 million isk for mining permits after receiving a rejected petition.
That hasn't stopped some miners from encouraging others to file more petitions.
No matter how many hundreds of anti-bumper petitions get rejected, some rebels continue to cling to false hope. For some reason, they always think their petition will be accepted. And when it's not, behold their reaction:
No matter how much CCP does to help the miners, the miners will always turn against them the moment they don't get 100% of what they want. There's just no pleasing some people.
A common miner refrain is that the only reason the bumpers haven't been banned yet is because not enough petitions have been filed. I have a feeling they underestimate just how many have been filed over the last few months.
Ice miner Brian Ragle proclaimed to everyone in the Tolle system that salvation was at hand.
Some GMs prefer to let the miners down easy, telling them their complaints will be "investigated". You might recall a similar situation last month, when a miner was told the GM would "look into it and take the appropriate action". (The appropriate action was to sit back, smile, and watch the New Order grow.)
Despite getting a form response, Brian was enthusiastic and encouraged more petitioning.
This is apparently the rebels' big plan to defeat the New Order. Brian told everyone that if they word their petitions just the right way, they might get accepted instead of rejected. Like a magic spell, I suppose.
Brian's hated enemies continued to bump freely while Brian sat helplessly out of mining range. If this is what "works", I'd hate to see what constitutes a failure.
Audrik Villalona is an ice miner and a self-proclaimed enemy of the New Order. Even he found the petitioning effort pathetic.
Upon being informed that his petitions were a Red Pennable offense, Brian was appalled. Could another petition be underway?
If you're a miner and you're tempted to join the resistance, take another look at these rebels. Their only hope of defeating the New Order is to file a bunch of petitions and annoy the GMs. I think we all know who is going to win this war. Resistance is frivolous.
