Highsec Miner Grab Bag #44
No refunds. Welcome to the forty-fourth edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!
Second Hand picked a bad time to give me the ol' Miner Bingo saw of "if you're bumping me, you're not bumping anyone else". But it occurred to me that as long as she's spouting nonsense to me, she's not spouting nonsense to any of my Agents. So I continued to bump, for their sake.
Piligrim Russ shed the most enigmatic tears after Guybertini ganked him. Somewhere in the rage was a genuine concern for Guybertini's health, though.
Let's be honest. If you're a highsec miner, you probably have a lot of free time on your hands, and you're not very discriminating in how you choose to spend it. So you may as well take the necessary time to comply with local Agents' requests.
Joppa Ikkala gave me a sarcastic compliment about how I run my "guild". Contrary to Joppa's expectations, forwarding me Guybertini's form EVEmail gave me warm fuzzies. I'm so proud of my guild.
Kinao D'Horid didn't quite make it to ninety-five theses, but he sent me a fairly long list of complaints about the New Order. I'll treat it as a lightning round and quickly address his concerns:
1. You can send me isk any time.
3. Bump fellow miners for isk.
3.(?) See above.
4. All must obey the Code.
5. MinerBumping.com. Sorry for your loss.
6. What? The New Order is the most fun thing in highsec!
It's as true in EVE as it is anywhere else on the internet: If someone claims they're blocking you, they're not blocking you. People who actually block you tend to block you rather than talk to you.
The only thing less intimidating than "powerful friends in nullsec" is powerful friends in highsec. All the powerful friends you can make in highsec belong to the New Order anyway.
In a stunning turn of events, rebels SPIONKOP and John Cadenza accused the New Order of being populated by bots. Not so. The New Order is the finest collection of humans in highsec. And if we did let bots join our ranks, they would be human-aspirants, like Data from Star Trek.
Putting the rumors to rest, I have never appeared on the cover of "Crack Whore Magazine". However, I was Time magazine's Person of the Year in 2006!
Gradious Minayin wants me to change how he feels. Easy enough. Buck up, kiddo. Also, you can send me 10 million isk.
As anyone will tell you, the New Order is the best thing ever to happen to miners of highsec. If you want to learn why, there are several hundred posts on MinerBumping for you to read, for a start. If you have any questions after that, I'll be happy to answer them.
