Previously, on MinerBumping... Lillith Darkmoore lost 4 billion isk when her ship and pod were destroyed while AFK mining in a highsec ice anomaly. When Lillith threatened to alert 6,000 nullsec "big boys" from Providence, Agent 412nv Yaken was called in to negotiate reimbursement. Sensing little progress, Lillith escalated her petition. With nothing less than the peace of highsec at stake, Agent loyalanon joined the emergency convo.
All along, Lillith had criticized her gankers for failing to obey the rules of nullsec Bushido. But Lillith herself had failed to comply with the Code--offering little but empty excuses as justification.
loyalanon was deeply troubled by Lillith's demeanor. She sure didn't act like a Gallant miner. Maybe she wasn't one.
Lillith was unaware of even the most basic facts of highsec life.
The miner began filling Miner Bingo squares at an alarming rate.
Now loyalanon could see what 412nv Yaken had been dealing with this whole time. It was impossible to get through to this carebear.
412nv Yaken > Loyal if I may?412nv tried to help Lillith get back on track. Lillith repaid the favor by misrepresenting their earlier conversation. Treachery!
412nv Yaken > Lillith Darkmoore Perhaps you can discuss the offer we were reaching an agreement on
Lillith Darkmoore > we were talking about setting up a contract with the cost of his ships and the 30m and i get my stuff back.
Lillith Darkmoore > thats what we had reached
412nv Yaken > no i had said that wouldnt work
loyalanon > Lillith Darkmoore why are you prepared to buy a mining permit AFTER you lost your ships?I've always said that if you want to convict a carebear, just keep them talking and they'll hang themselves. Lillith admitted that she only cared about money.
Lillith Darkmoore > because I want my implants replaced
loyalanon > Lillith Darkmoore that is not a valid reason to get a mining permit friend
loyalanon > a mining permit displayed proudly in your bio means that you respect, understand and support James 315's will for all of high security space which I dont feel you understand or respect.
Lillith Darkmoore > and i want to avoide having a whole bunch of people diverted out of null to come up here and shoot this outNext, Lillith appealed to the kind of sordid, backroom Realpolitik that we all know goes on in nullsec.
Lillith Darkmoore > it is a reason for getting a mining permit, it keeps you happy and me happy everyone wins
Lillith Darkmoore > so i dont see a down side for you
Lillith Darkmoore > you get to preach that you can convert everyoneThe highsec miner from Providence badly miscalculated. She wasn't dealing with a power-hungry nullsec politician who only cared about the optics of the situation. loyalanon was a true believer.
Lillith Darkmoore > look at person xyz
Lillith Darkmoore > and I get to say yes they did praze james ooooo
loyalanon > If you dont understand what the mining permit is about then sadly I dont feel someone would issue you one criminal
Lillith Darkmoore > the mining permit is a way that you get to justify someone "owning highses" and make some isk out of it, lets call it what it really isProtip: When speaking with an Agent of the New Order, assume you're dealing with someone who can't be bribed or corrupted. Because they can't.
Lillith Darkmoore > package it anyway you want, but thats what its all about
loyalanon > 10million isk is not alot of money friend
Lillith Darkmoore > no im not complaning about htat
Lillith Darkmoore > ill pay it
Lillith Darkmoore > i just want my stuff back
Lillith Darkmoore > again everyone is winning
loyalanon > That doesnt look like thats going to happen friendThere was something slimy and off-putting about Lillith. loyalanon didn't like it. When invited to put her integrity to the test, loyalanon wasted no time:
Lillith Darkmoore > Friend, I am trying to help you out here
Lillith Darkmoore > i really am
loyalanon > I dont feel any of the directors of code alliance in this chat channel believe your sincerity in buying a mining permit.
Lillith Darkmoore > test it
loyalanon > If i choose to say no to your reimbursement request, then what?Needless to say, Lillith failed. However, Lillith still had 6,000 nullsec samurai in her back pocket, if she needed them. Lillith didn't want to have to play that card. Now she had no choice. Time to bring in the big guns.
loyalanon > would you still want a mining permit?
Lillith Darkmoore > I am hoping that it wont come to that
