Here are some of the relevant bits of the OP:
The intention of this thread is to gather questions, opinions and feedback from the player base with regards to bumping, and present them to the Senior GMs for review and responses... In this thread I will be gathering questions, comments, feedback and opinions regarding bumping... This thread will run for one week, until 17:00 on Wednesday, December 5th, after which I will close it. I will then gather responses, opinions, questions and feedback from it, before forwarding it on to the Senior GMs for review, who will then provide a response...Clearly, the power of the New Order has made all of highsec minerdom tremble with fear. The carebears have only one desire: To eliminate all obstacles to botting and bot-aspirant behavior in highec so they can continue their steady drip of risk-free isk. When carebears beg CCP to do something, CCP usually does it. However, carebears are not the only ones who have opinions about bumping. I believe readers of this blog also have an interest in the future of the bumping mechanic, and I believe those opinions should be represented in that thread.
