The day began with a promising enough start for Gaylord Fappington, Agent of the New Order. He discovered an ice anomaly and eliminated a threat that was lurking within. After extinguishing the miner, Gaylord offered to sell him a mining permit. As an Agent and a member of GoonSwarm, Gaylord was used to dealing with unruly miners. Iceman Alabel gave him a piece of his mind. It was a bad decision--he had little to spare. Gaylord agreed to refer the matter to an impartial mediator.
Gaylord Fappington > Hello
Gaylord Fappington > getting mediator in here one second
Iceman Alabel > ill never buy a permit
Gaylord Fappington > We have a miner here who is filing a greivance against me
Gaylord Fappington > He says I did not follow the Code because I did not warn him
Iceman Alabel > thats right
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Oh dear
Luckily, a man of honour was not difficult to find.
Iceman Alabel > if i remember right i should get bumped b4 i get popedThe miner told the story from his perspective. As the killmail confirmed, Iceman didn't get any ice from the anomaly. That's how efficiently Gaylord was able to gank him.
Gaylord Fappington > Kill: Iceman Alabel (Covetor) for reference, this is the incident in question
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Iceman Alabel if you have any facts you would like established lets hear them now
Iceman Alabel > lets see ishowed up to the belt mined not even one cycle and was poped
Iceman Alabel > no warning that i was "breaking" your code rules
Gaylord Fappington > I admit I dispensed justice quickly
Gaylord Fappington > But the Miner's bio alarmed me
Gaylord Fappington > I checked his bio for his permit info and saw this:
At the outset, it seemed like an open-and-shut case. Instead of proudly sporting a mining permit in his bio, Iceman proclaimed himself a miner-aspirant.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Ah yes, I see that there is a bit of an issue with the bio, now that you point it out.The New Order is filled with problem-solvers. We fix things when they're broken--but we also try our best to stop problems from getting worse.
Gaylord Fappington > And yet, there he was mining, recklessly and with no permit
Gaylord Fappington > I said to myself, 'here is a minor miner, and he's already breaking the rules. I need to act fast before he grows into an afk miner'
Iceman Alabel > on person on and alt account trying to bring in a little ice for cash in not reckless minning
Gaylord Fappington > I tried to explain that having a permit would help him calm down, but he just got madderYou know what they say about judging a book by its cover? All Iceman knew about Gaylord was that he was an Agent of the New Order, a Goon, and that he'd ganked him. Based on nothing else, Iceman condemned Gaylord. He didn't bother getting to know him.
Gaylord Fappington > He insulted The New Order, Agents, and even poor defenseless Goons in his tirade
Iceman Alabel > ha im over that but iv told you and other agents that il never buy a permit
Gaylord Fappington > [00:40:37] Iceman Alabel > that and the goons are fuckasses too
Iceman Alabel > dam right
Iceman Alabel > but to be fair my hatrid toward the goons comes from b4 the NO was even a thingThe risk/reward imbalance in highsec continues to take its toll. Even though Iceman was a relatively new alt, he admitted that he was a veteran EVE player. And still, he was mining highsec ice with a fail-fit Covetor. He needed Order in his life.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Let's not discriminate against any minorities in this chat, please, Iceman. That would include reaffirmations of the prior inflammatory statements you have made.
Iceman Alabel > is was just explaning that comment
Gaylord Fappington > How long have you been playing Eve?
Iceman Alabel > 4 years
Gaylord Fappington > And yet you're still confused on the rules of The Code?Snap judgments seemed to be Iceman's specialty. Without even meeting me, he was sure he didn't like me. Also, Nazis.
Iceman Alabel > iv been living here longher the the NO
Iceman Alabel > no i know the rules for the most part im just not folling for james bull
Iceman Alabel > the NO coming into my home and telling me to fall in line is like the nazis invading france or poland
Gaylord Fappington > Oh my
Iceman Alabel > none of my isk is ever going to james bich ass
Iceman Alabel > how was i the biggest threat when you had someone multiboxing in the same belt?In spite of everything, Gaylord took pity on the miner. Knowing full well that he could be jeopardizing his own position in the mediation, Gaylord located an attorney for Iceman. Not just any attorney, either--it was HotShotX Warcastle, a hotshot space attorney.
Gaylord Fappington > I bet TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet could sell you a shiny new permit right here on the spot
Iceman Alabel > ya im not paying gankes either
Gaylord Fappington > Iceman Alabel , I just took the liberty of getting you an attorney
HotShotX Warcastle > Good Evening.
HotShotX Warcastle > May I have a moment with my client, please.
Iceman Alabel > ya a code lawer in a leagle battle agenst the code, ya that wont doHotShotX was a public defender. Mostly he defended the public by ganking bot-aspirants. Though HotShotX had a great record, Iceman wasn't sure he trusted him, due to his affiliation with the New Order. Another book judged by its cover. HotShotX assured the miner that he could get results.
HotShotX Warcastle > To be upfront, I am indeed a Code Agent, but I do believe that if Code or one of its Agent was wrong, I would want them help accountable.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > This isn't going to be decided by the CODE. lawyer
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I'm an independent third party and I take my responsibility to be impartial very seriously
Iceman Alabel > TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet and no offence to you either but your prob code too
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > It's actually a very smart system. I don't get paid unless there is a negotiated settlement. It's actually very progressive and European....But like I said, some days it just ain't easy.
Iceman Alabel > so you guse with all the isk pay him to tell ppl like me who just lost there ship tough shit should have bought a permit
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Iceman Alabel if you do not choose a defender the tribunal will appoint one for you.
Iceman Alabel > ya no need for one
HotShotX Warcastle > Is the defendent choosing to self-represent???
Iceman Alabel > the judgement will be agenst me nomatter what
HotShotX Warcastle > (Not advised)
HotShotX Warcastle > /emote sighs
