Can you believe this is the fortieth edition of the Grab Bag of highsec miner tears? The anguish of the unrighteous may be limitless. We'll have to continue testing that theory to be certain.
Some call us extortionists, but that can't be the case. Even those who pay must follow the Code. It's difficult for carebears to accept that some things have a value upon which you can't put a price tag.
Protip: If you want to encourage people to collect a bounty on me, you're going to need to give them more than a few days. Maybe a few years, given how infrequently I lose ships (i.e. never). Jayrendo Karr's plan spun out of a distraught miner posting on Reddit.
Actually, I'm frequently the topic of conversation on Reddit. As in EVE, the miners' "someone else do something about it" attitude prevails.
It's good to get people excited about something in EVE these days. The last few expansions haven't been very inspiring. Thank goodness for me!
Of course, there are always those who are too "cool" to go along with everyone else. That's why the persistent application of force is so beneficial. The New Order is not merely "trendy". Trends are voluntary.
No, Gizmarien Canis wasn't hitting random letters on his keyboard. Google Translate identified the language here as Croatian:
"Monkey motherfucker jackass stupid... While reading this motherfucker illiterate moron. I'll fuck you up the whole family and see you again. Moron."
Now you know what people mean when they call you a "debilu".
After so many years of hopelessness in highsec, some miners are cynical. They really can't believe we act out of the goodness of our own hearts. A few more years of New Order justice, and even the most stubborn miners will get the message!
AMG Naari falls into the classic carebear trap of assuming it's easy to gank miners. And yet, I still haven't met a carebear who was capable of it.
It always amuses me when carebears think that I do what I do as some kind of ego trip. I bet they think people who volunteer at soup kitchens are doing it for some selfish reason, too.
One of the tragic side effects of the new slang definition of "sick" is that you can't always tell whether someone is complimenting you or insulting you. You must rely on the context. The preceding EVEmail is an example of a miner who uses the word "sick" to say the New Order is bad. You can tell by the carebearism. He thinks if you pay CCP some money, you should be guaranteed success in this game. "Pay-to-win", anyone?
Although the Code does not explicitly require miners to praise me in local every day, I can scarcely think of any good reason why they wouldn't do so.
Draecos Archangelus may be disappointed, but I couldn't be any prouder of Agent NotTheSmartestCookie for popping his Retriever and salvaging the miner's tears. It's not cruelty; it's PvP. And elite PvP at that.
