The Impostor Tweets
EVE has a long history of faux James 315s. We last reviewed the rogues gallery of impostors two years ago.
Some were mere references...
Most were low-quality...
And there were those, like this impersonator of Currin Trading, that had a lot of effort put into them--even creating fake New Order corps. Some of those listed above have since been deleted for inactivity.
...But new ones have popped up in their place.
What is their purpose? Only their creators know for certain.
On the other hand, the occasional impostor exists as a platform for broadcasting the rebel message.
If the rebel message were worthwhile, however, they wouldn't need to rely on my great fame. Clearly, rebels cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas. The Code retains its monopoly there.
What's this? The false James 315s have made their way to social media. Appearances to the contrary, this Twitter account, @theonlyJames315, is not the James 315 you're looking for.
It even includes an "ALWAYS" logo which bears a resemblance to the one used in CODE.'s alliance logo submission.
To make the illusion even more convincing, this false James 315 tweets things you might expect to hear from me.
For what reason was this Twitter account created? Is it an Anti-Ganker playing the long con? The pet project of a rogue Agent? Has the Code become sentient, no longer content to spread its message through human vessels? We may never know.

Funny how the stupid impersonation clause doesn't apply to any of these accounts, ain't it?ReplyDelete
Even to a total moron its clear that all those other james 315's are not the original one.ReplyDelete
The impersonation clause comes into effect not when a name is similar, even if its very close, but rather when someone using a name claims to be the original char (either in conversations or in local chat).
Char name: James 3I5, says nothing in chats or local to imply he is the original = ok.
Char name: Billybob, Constantly says on local, "Im the alt of James 315" = Ban
all i know is i put my pizza in the microwave for 3:15 and it comes out perfectReplyDelete

I had a feeling it wasn't you. 140 characters seems so.... limiting for one with your talent for detail.ReplyDelete
Oh, it's me. I let out my alter ego that turns me into a shit posting troll for my own blog.Delete
LOL Funky, I agree!Delete
Miner/FakeJames/Kalynn... Please calm down.ReplyDelete
AG "community": is this who you truly want to represent your cause? A fake fail troll who uses real life atrocities in order to attempt to affect an Internet spaceship video game?
You're the one who needs to calm down. You're just pissed off because I'm awesome and you are lame. I'm in effect, and you're not. And you are also probably pissed off because you just found out that I turned your mother out.ReplyDelete
So, my brainwashed minions, bask in the glory of the awesomeness of your saviour: Me, James 315, the baffoon of highsec. Go forth and bring me a corpse today.
James 315/Miner Bumping
kalynn, calm down...ReplyDelete
This has butt hurt miner written all over it. Making light of real life events to belittle a video game group is sad but unfortunately right up his alley.ReplyDelete
What is it with anti gankers and the word buffoon?! The 30s are over!ReplyDelete
perhaps it's a cunning ruse.Delete
Antigankers being cunning?Delete
Good one, JokerAnon!
Yeah, guys, this is Butthurt Miner with the fake James 315 account. You can tell because "glowing ass" is one of Butthurt Miner's signature lines.ReplyDelete
And anyone that says "I am the true James 315" is not the true James 315.
I found god and James 315 is not allowed into heavenReplyDelete
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.ReplyDelete
Being that mad you need to imitate the saviour of high sec XDReplyDelete
Antigankers need to calm down XD XD
I guess that 100B donation pushed a few of them off the edge.Delete
> 2 trillion ISK in kills might have something to do with it as well ;).Delete
Keep on crushing their dreams, loyal.
more lame code stupidity....evil people never winDelete
evil code is evil, tea party is only way to live your life in game or RLDelete
Lol ming, was just about to post that but you beat me to it.ReplyDelete
All this talk of "glowing ass rockets around" suggests....ReplyDelete
I drew a picture for everyone:ReplyDelete
Everyone wants to be the savior of highsec. Too bad only one of them has managed to pull it off.ReplyDelete
Great job in 2015, James 315. The New Order ALWAYS wins.
And he had to resort to lies and treachery to do it....Delete
At least you can admit he is the saviour. You're making progress anon.Delete
Didn't fool you guys huh? Time to come up with a new modus operandi then.. Anyways Alana, it's interesting that you bring up Firefly....ReplyDelete
That was actually a pretty cool sci-fi show. I wish they made more of them. So I guess CCP's tribute to Firefly is the moa.
Loved that show.ReplyDelete
