I was contacted by Cuban Ace, who identified himself as an enemy of the Sansha. Note that he did not claim to be a Sansha, because impersonating a Sansha would be wrong. (More on that subject another day.)
Cuban heard the plaintive cry of a carebear in local. For reasons unknown, zesa was incapable of mining for a whole day. That's where Cuban's compassion kicked in. Instinctively, he knew he needed to help the miner, if he could.
Just a few lines into their convo, zesa was showing every symptom of bot-aspirancy. He'd rather play another video game than jump one system in EVE.
A typical carebear, zesa was in no hurry. Nothing motivated him. The slightest inconvenience--in this case, a Sansha incursion--was enough to stop him dead in his tracks.
Though some find torture preferable, Agents of the New Order are skilled in alternative interrogation techniques. We build a rapport with the bot-aspirants and get them to open up. Then they pour out their dirty secrets. zesa freely confessed his violations of the Code.
It got worse. zesa had ambitions to get his hands on a titan. At the moment, he was constructing capital ships. Yet he had absolutely no interest in PvP, and he didn't believe in the maxim, "Only fly what you can afford to lose." He was not a proper EVE player.
Cuban Ace ended his EVEmail by commending the Sanshas. Despite being bots, Sanshas helped inhibit the mining activity of a Code-violator.
...But the story didn't end there. Just as he was in the middle of his convo with zesa, contemplating the Code and its implications, Cuban became inspired.
Cuban Ace > if you dont have a supportive corporation, it's pointless to try and move them aroundEnquiring further, Cuban discovered zesa's bloodless, unnatural intentions for the capital ships that he built. He would enslave the grand PvP vessels and put them to use in a fully bot-aspirant manner.
zesa > I am constructin a caldari dread at this time and there is no hurry
zesa > I don't sell them
zesa > I would rat with them in 0 but like I said people want to destroy them
Cuban Ace > Ever thought of joining a nullsec corp ?Each time zesa opened his mouth, it only got worse. On any other day, zesa would commit his atrocities and get away clean. But not this day. For on this day, he had met a true Agent of the New Order. And the game, as they say, was afoot.
Cuban Ace > or a lowsec one ?
Cuban Ace > that uses them ?
zesa > I have belonged to several but they get upset when I don't want to pvp
zesa > I enjoy ratting in low sec but the ceo don't like that when you refuse to pvp
Cuban Ace > I could try to help you in a corp that wouldnt be upset
