Highsec Miner Grab Bag #89

If you see a bio like this one...


...you know it's about time for the next edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag.


Agent V-ktor Dolus has discovered evidence of a new form of bot-aspirancy: Carebears who don't bother to anchor their ship assembly array inside the POS shields!


Agent Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri could give this carebear a lecture on the Code, but instead he chose to reveal the Code in a series of questions:


Unfortunately, the carebear couldn't get past the first question.


A miner joined Agent Liek DarZ's fleet expecting Orca bonuses and such. She joined the wrong fleet, I think. Or maybe she joined the right fleet--she was soon ganked by our Agent, which was precisely what she deserved.


There's a reason why most surveys have a section for "Don't Know/No Opinion".


This carebear would be heartbroken to know that CCP devs are given laminated mining permits at fan events.


Ah denialists. For a Code that doesn't exist, it certainly has a lot of influence these days.


To be fair, our Agents usually don't buy ships with their mothers' RL money. We have X-FEANOR's RL money for that.


I think Rakues Patrouette is confused about the way civilizations develop. I'm not sure why; it's explained right at the beginning of the Code!


Luckily, the carebear promised not to get mad.


Although I get a fair number of angry EVEmails, I also receive a lot of random requests for forgiveness. Highsec miners must perceive that I am a very forgiving person.


Impressively, most apologies I receive are sincere, and not of the political, conditional "If I offended you, then I apologize" variety. Their sincerity is rewarded. I'm always willing to forgive EVE players who are willing to make up for their crimes.

    I know it's not the end of the year, but in my opinion this miner won a Darwin award for this year.

  3. Ahhh... the weekly examples of how CODE is abusing HS mechanics to satisfy thier sociopathic needs. Well done CODE, eve will be dead within six months but my law practice will continue to make me filthy rich!

  4. Just as the whines of the carebears are all variations upon a theme (wah, you're a bully!), so our responses have a consistency which never wavers nor flinches (follow the Code!).

    Who'll blink first, d'you think? Hint: The Code always wins!

    Also, penitence is sweet.
