If "might makes right", then the Agents of the New Order are surely always right. And yet, what's so impressive about the New Order is, not only are our Agents unbeatable warriors in PvP--they're also intellectual giants.
Disgruntled highsec carebear Philip Elliades sent a complaint EVEmail to Agent Liek DarZ. With no apparent provocation, he called the Agent an "asshole".
Agent Liek could have ignored the carebear. Or he could've repaid ugliness with ugliness. He did neither. Instead, our hero did something revolutionary for EVE and highsec: He told the truth.
Despite being told exactly what he needed to hear, Philip dug in his heels and called Liek an asshole again.
Carebears, if you're thinking of getting into an argument with an Agent of the New Order, I'd advise against it--unless you want to learn something. Our Agents have never lost a debate.
Poor Philip didn't even realize he was in the presence of a scholar. He didn't take advantage of the gift he'd been given. The carebear couldn't resist getting in the last word, though. Especially if the last word could be "asshole".
New Order guns reign over the asteroid belts and trade routes of highsec. But it's our Agents' brainpower that keeps empire space in line. Liek gave the carebear another lesson, reminding him of the importance of the risk/reward balance in EVE. Suicide gankers are essential. Philip, as you'd expect, wouldn't listen. He replied one more time:
True to his bot-aspirancy, Philip kept repeating the same mistake over and over. He couldn't expand his horizons beyond repetitive PvE and calling people assholes. If you've spent time in highsec, the interaction between Liek DarZ and Philip Elliades should have a familiar ring to it. It's a microcosm of the battle taking place. Code-violators keep losing, and CODE keeps winning--with style and class. If you've ever wondered why all the good people always end up on our side, what can I say? Birds of a feather flock together.
