Liek DarZ > o/ How may I help you?Those who hate the Code or attempt to minimize its influence would be surprised and disheartened to discover how often it's the miners themselves who approach our Agents. Jaroth Kings was a man in a hurry. He wanted to get the whole "permit" thing out of the way as quickly as possible.
Jaroth Kings > tell me about this permit?
Liek DarZ > What would you like to know? Have you read the law already? http://www.lawofhighsec.com/the-law
Jaroth Kings > tell me i dont have time to read stories
Jaroth Kings > 10 mil and i can mine for how long with out being popped
Liek DarZ > No, sorry, it is not my job to cater to someon's laziness.Agent Liek DarZ was contacted by Jaroth. Liek tried to help the eager carebear as best he could. But he didn't indulge the miner unnecessarily. When needed, he showed firmness. Liek knew that although he could be a friend to the miner, he was also an authority figure.
Liek DarZ > If you follow the rules, yes, you can keep mining then
Liek DarZ > The rules are given in the link above
Jaroth Kings > ok so i red the rulz now what?
Liek DarZ > if you want to follow them,Liek had done Jaroth a huge favor. First, he'd sent him a link to a user-friendly restatement of the Code. Then he sold the miner a permit and sent him even more information about the Code via EVEmail.
Liek DarZ > please send me 10m ISK, then I will send you your license
Jaroth Kings > and where do i put licence?
Liek DarZ > into the biography - the evemail will show how to
Jaroth Kings > sent
Liek DarZ > Then have a nice time and enjoy your permit!
Liek DarZ > Please read the evemail thoroughly - o7
Jaroth Kings > rgr
Less than two hours later, Liek DarZ returned and killed the untanked miner. Liek had known there was something off about the guy. He checked up on Jaroth only to see what he'd feared: The miner had no intention of actually obeying the Code. Jaroth was basically a scammer, though I suppose in this case he was a scammer who gave money instead of taking it.
Liek DarZ > pls check localJaroth sputtered in disbelief. And yet, if you examine his reaction closely, you'll notice that he immediately began asking about possible ways he'd broken the rules. He knew he wasn't innocent.
Jaroth Kings > ?
Jaroth Kings > what do u calsssify as a ileagle vessel?
Liek DarZ > Why did you ignore my evemail's content?
Jaroth Kings > u serios
Liek DarZ > Did you read my evemail, as I asked you?The miner now resembled a student who claimed he'd done the reading assignment the night before--while hastily flipping through the pages in class the next day.
Jaroth Kings > that i did
Jaroth Kings > hangon a t1 barge is illeagle
Jaroth Kings > dont be gready?
Jaroth Kings > u serios?
Liek DarZ > yes. The part about what ships to use.The miner's attitude became more and more sour. His cynicism grew.
Liek DarZ > And further up - the part about checking local?
Jaroth Kings > fucking usless
Liek DarZ > Oh. So you ignoring a personal warning for minutes AND ignoring two statements in an evemail makes anything useless but your behaviour?
Jaroth Kings > so i shall mine in a ibis then?
Liek DarZ > Did you read the evemail maybe?Agent-aspirants, take note! Liek didn't need to bully or torture Jaroth to get a confession out of him. He politely but directly questioned the miner's story. Before long, Jaroth admitted that he violated the Code.
Jaroth Kings > i did
Liek DarZ > but why did you chose not to follow it?
Liek DarZ > In at least two regards?
Jaroth Kings > maybe cause i had othethings exept keep and eye on local
Jaroth Kings > i saw warning, and just as i react u pop meHaving been exposed as a Code violator, the miner took off his mask: He was a Goofus.
Liek DarZ > so you wilingly/knowingly/intentionally ignored what I wrote in the evemail?
Liek DarZ > Oh, and I wrote that warning several minutes ago in local
Jaroth Kings > dude... go and fornicate with a baboon
Jaroth Kings > simple as that
Jaroth Kings > heading off to wh, easier there
Liek DarZ > See, you made a contract and then did not stick to the termsThe Goofus wasn't interested in being told what to do, no matter how essential the instructions were for his safety and the good of highsec. Jaroth terminated the convo.
Jaroth Kings > im paying to mine
Jaroth Kings > not just u but ccp aswell
Liek DarZ > "but for mining ships specifically it means to use a Procurer or Skiff - those emphasize tankiness over yield or laziness-inspiring large cargo holds. Please consider this information!"
Liek DarZ > I think that part is specific enough
Jaroth Kings > ??
Jaroth Kings > bla bla
Liek DarZ > o/During their second attempt at a proper post-gank conversation, Jaroth made it known that he wasn't interested in getting better. He'd given up on highsec.
Jaroth Kings > o/
Liek DarZ > Have you had time to calm down and see where you brought that upon yourself really?
Jaroth Kings > dont bother
Jaroth Kings > heading out in a bit back to wh space
Liek DarZ > ah, sure, okay. Your call, you are free to leave CODE spaceOn what must be the slowest-ever journey to wormhole space, Jaroth repeated his cynical beliefs about the Code. If Jaroth were to be believed, this would be the last our Agent would see of the miner. Liek knew better. And our hero was determined to see justice done.
Jaroth Kings > i have a yr permit, so if i feel like coming back i will
Liek DarZ > No, it is not valid any longer now.
Jaroth Kings > fcking scammers u are
Liek DarZ > you knew about all the terms
Liek DarZ > You claimed you read everything, but did not actually do it?
Liek DarZ > Whose fault is that, again?
Jaroth Kings > myne for paying u in the first place
Jaroth Kings > its all good, heading back to wh
