CCP posted a link to the Golden Rules article on the official EVE Wiki. It wouldn't be going too far to say that this counts as a tacit endorsement of the contents of the article, would it? So I think we'd better learn more about these "Golden Rules"...
My goodness. I think we have a new link to provide all the screaming carebears. If this article--on the official Wiki and linked by CCP on the launch screen--went any further, it would be a copy of the Code.
The second-to-last item there really is golden. As for the last item, it's a stern reminder to the carebears, who, as we've seen time and time again, struggle to resist the temptation to make real-life threats. At the same time, a carebear's risk of actually being banned for making said threats is probably overstated.
As good as the "Golden Rules" article is, it was missing at least one.
- The CODE always wins.
To illustrate the Golden Rules and to celebrate the contributions of his good friend John E Normus, Agent loyalanon created a fine video of carebears being executed for Code violations. Look at all those burning freighters who consented to PvP by undocking!
