Spark2Universe Returns

Do you remember Spark2Universe? He was a Code violator who engaged in a lengthy conversation with Agent Selina Dyle by EVEmail after his Hulk was destroyed. Just prior to my post about him, Spark sent Selina one last parting shot:


Spark's views on the EULA are fascinating. Shooting spaceships in highsec is possible, but it's a violation of the EULA. Combat is an "exploit".


Spark also has an interesting view on real-world morality: Shooting Hulks in highsec is worse than actual terrorism, because at least terrorists don't ask for 10 million isk.


If the Nazis do have a Code, it probably doesn't compare to the New Halaima Code of Conduct. Did the Nazis illustrate their system of laws with examples from Goofus and Gallant? No, I didn't think so.


Perhaps the most disturbing thing that Spark2Universe said in his EVEmail is that he acts the exact same way in real life as he does in EVE.


MinerBumping posts deliver highsec miners from obscurity into infamy. After the post about Spark went live, someone told him about it. He took the opportunity to respond to my remarks.


It seemed as though the bounty placed on Spark really rankled him. You would be surprised how many carebears are offended when they get a "WANTED" sign plastered across their portrait.


In the original series of EVEmails, Spark had revealed that his real name was Rafael, and Agent Selina Dyle replied that her own real name was Sarah Palin. Apparently Spark didn't buy it.


Flexing his incipient space lawyer muscles, Spark recommended that I clarify that Selina Dyle is not, in fact, Sarah Palin. First of all, surely more than one person is named Sarah Palin, so claiming to have that name doesn't mean someone is impersonating the former governor of Alaska. Secondly, I have no way of knowing whether Selina's real name actually is Sarah Palin, or even whether Selina is indeed the former governor of Alaska. I can only report that Selina Dyle signed an EVEmail as "Sarah Palin", and I respect that.


One thing that makes me very proud of the New Order is that we always leave miners better than we found them. Spark2Universe still has a long way to go, but I am confident that significant progress has been made.

  3. Spark2Universe intends to overpower the Invincible Stabber's shieldtank with a deluge of inane words. Whatever happened to quality over quantity?

    1. The AI that runs the ship very well might overload the warp drive in the face of such a wall of fail. I'm reminded of "Airplane" where people sitting next to Robert Hayes kill themselves rather than listen to his sob story.

  6. James for the good of us all you have to start posting epilepsy warnings at the top of spergs like that please. I nearly had a seizure reading all that and I don't even suffer from epilepsy. I've never seen so much false and outright wrong "logic" before. It like the prime motherlode of non sequitur all gathered and concentrated in one place to horrifyingly dangerous levels. The Fukushima of the internet, glowing brightly, attracting attention, but deadly to those drawn in.
    I'm adding to that bounty - someone need to put an end to that evil villain, he's torturing reason, and reason isn't taking it well.
    Like the poster above I'm sat here wishing I could unread everything Spark2Universe wrote.

    1. I couldn't agree more with you Mr. Pasuul. There was so much wrong with those EVEmails that I don't know where to begin. If only I could unread it.

  7. Claiming shooting spaceships in hisec is illegal and therefor and exploit
    Saying shooting spaceships in hisec is worse than murdering people in real life
    Comparisons to Hitler and other Nasty People
    Claims to enjoy the game "like it is" and then says he's going to keep begging CCP to change it into a themepark

    Is there no depth to the idiocy to carebears? Are they incapable of separating a game from real life? Are they so despicable that they think that their suffering - losing items in a video game - exceeds that of families who have been murdered by terrorists, races who have been subject of genocide?

    Carebears are truly sickening

  10. In the United States you are guilty until proven innocent. "You must prove anything you claim." Apparently he already knows this, but contradicts himself anyway. Furthermore, comparing a fake internet pixel spaceship world game to real world events (esp. negative world events) in an attempt to win an argument is sad. ..To continue, "i act here the same as in the real world.." believing the rules of "life" and the rules of "internet spaceship game" are one and the same begs the question whether or not this individual has social/life issues (if you do, please get help). "at some point in time you will think the laws in the real world are the same as in the virtual world." Do I even need to point it out? I normally don't quote people in this way, but there's just too many contradictions and "interesting" Beliefs this guy has.

    I can't even read the rest, this guy's an idiot... Are we getting players from WoW or something? Clearly he has no idea what he's trying to talk about, but acts like he does. Not saying that all WoW players are bad, just most of them.

  11. There is only 1 way to clear this up. We should Have MSNBC ask Sarah Palin, the former governor, if she supports James 315 throwing a tea party in Eve Online. If she says yes, then we know that she does indeed play the game and can be none other than the person quoted here.
