Previously, on MinerBumping... After a miner's alt was blown up in Mitsolen, he convoed me to demand that Agents notify miners before they get blown up. I listened patiently to his concerns.
To help put runfattyrun Aivoras' mind at ease, I invited some representatives of the highsec community into the convo.
Wescro had it right--everyone has been asked to purchase a mining permit. If I need to ask twice, then everyone can just read the Code twice.
CSM candidate Psychotic Monk dropped by to offer his potential future constituent some advice from a fair, neutral point of view.
A consensus was reached quickly: A miner cannot claim innocence through ignorance. If anything, ignorance of the Code is another violation of it.
Psychotic made an important point. A highsec miner's lack of awareness of the Code and the New Order is a symptom of bot-aspirancy.
runfattyrun admitted in front of the Agents that he was already familiar with the Code before being attacked.
In desperation, runfattyrun questioned the legitimacy of the New Order family.
When you think about it, aren't AFK miners kind of in a bunch of one-man cults themselves? Their worship of isk, their self-imposed silence, their commitment to dubious "principles"...
Carebear logic: I would have bought a permit, but now that I've seen the consequences of not having one, I'm less likely to get one. Whaaaat?
Ah, highsec miners and their New Order metaphors...
runfattyrun confessed to his bot-aspirant desires and left the convo. I am a man of extraordinary compassion and empathy. I understand that sometimes people just want to relax or watch a movie. However, I am also a man of logic and reason. At the end of the day, I have no problem with people who want to do things other than play EVE--I just don't think they should get paid spacemoney for it.
