Highsec Nightmare, Part 1
Say, do you remember a fellow named TDD Dominaters?
TDD became the subject of a few MinerBumping posts when he tried and failed to interrupt ganks. Our Agents wardecced his corp, which got him in trouble with corp leadership. After TDD got kicked out of his corp, he made more threats against the New Order. In my closing remarks on that last MinerBumping post, I held out hope that he would purchase a mining permit and get Code-compliant.
Even the most rebellious miners in highsec will one day pledge their loyalty to the New Order. It's inevitable. Even TDD paid, and was willing to advertise it in his bio.
Nevertheless, Code-compliance isn't about what you pay or what you say--it's about whether you obey. Agent Dr Wiwwy, who had previously ganked TDD for non-compliance, was astonished when TDD made a kill right against him available to all.
After careful consideration, Dr Wiwwy found no alternative. He had to revoke TDD's mining permit. It's very, very, very rare, but it does happen.
This was the point where TDD should've come clean, apologized, and begged forgiveness from any Agent who would listen. Instead, he played cute. If you've seen TDD's profile picture, "cute" isn't a role he was born to play.
Considering how often carebears lie, they're surprisingly bad at it. Despite there being no way to cover up the fact that a kill right has been made available, TDD tried to pretend it didn't happen. Then he immediately justified the very action he claimed not to take, by saying Dr Wiwwy deserved it! That's like a miner saying, "I didn't beat my wife, but she shouldn't have gotten on my nerves."
My name is basically synonymous with truth in highsec. Invoke my name to a rebel carebear, and he will instinctively flinch. Like an endgame boss revealing his true form, TDD dropped his pretense of being an innocent miner. He was a monster, hideous to look upon.
TDD lost control of his keyboard and sputtered about in a manner that almost makes liberty sound coherent by comparison. TDD was a rebel miner now, through and through. It's disturbing to think that someone with a permit in their bio would be capable of such a thing. And yet, I'm sorry to say, the horrors were only just beginning...
