The Destroyer of CODE, Part 4

Previously, on MinerBumping... Chip Patton publicized his organization in Elite Dangerous by telling everyone he was responsible for completely destroying CODE. in EVE Online. loyalanon wanted more information from Chip about his alliance's alleged destruction, and Chip began sending him a series of increasingly bizarre EVEmails. Despite claiming to have destroyed CODE. and to have permabanned 90% of its members, Chip seemed to support some aspects of the Code, and encouraged loyalanon to work with him.


Failing to get a response from loyalanon, Chip went to the Saviour of Highsec himself! Chip's first task was to persuade me to do away with the idea that I should consider the source. Sure, Chip might have zero credibility, but that didn't mean that what he was about to say now wasn't true. That would be a logical fallacy.


Chip told the story of his organization's two-year history of constantly fighting and defeating New Order Agents. But Chip was a subtle operator; as he said before, he was not one to fight on the battlefield. He was so under-the-radar that no one even knew his victories over the Code were taking place.


Translation: Chip defeated our suicide gankers by allowing them to be CONCORDed post-gank, after which they docked up for their aggression timers. Looks like we've got a new Napoleon on our hands.


According to Chip, his was the first organization that CODE. has ever wardecced. And in highsec, no less!


For an organization that he'd brought to extinction, Chip was surprisingly interested in the idea of tweaking CODE.'s procedures.


It only got more strange: Chip proposed that his organization would pay CODE. to perform Code enforcement. Sadly, the proposal involved too much red tape for us to consider.


Actually, the New Order has always been strongly in favor of freedom of speech. Of course, every reasonable person agrees that free speech requires some limits. For example, one can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater, as it would be reckless and irresponsible--just like criticizing the Code and the New Order.


Sounds like a bunch of utopian, pie-in-the-sky stuff to me. Call me a cynic, but I prefer the cold, hard pragmatism of the Code and the glorious, perfect highsec it promises to create.


Chip had come a long way, from "I destroyed CODE. and permabanned everyone" to "Let's talk about how I can give money to CODE." What can account for such a transformation? Easy: Chip had spent a few minutes talking to loyalanon. That's how good our Agents are at influencing people. The more time you spend with the New Order, the more you'll come around to their way of thinking. Just another example of why loyalanon is one of the most highly regarded diplomats in EVE history.

      I know that's a lot of text in that pastebin, but if you sift through it, you will learn that is a text record of the Anti-Ganking channel's learning that one of their chief moderators, Kalynn Shardani, who was "one of their nicest and most helpful people" to them, was actually someone with major anger issues who took it out on their family, sadly culminating in the murder/suicide of themselves and their 1-year old infant.

      When James 315 literally writes in The Code that "if we can save a wife or child one extra beating by allowing the miner to vent its hostilities in local," He isn't kidding.

      And it brings the reality of The Code into a clearer, colder, focus.

    10. Look at Anon3:50.

      Go on, look at him

      So angry not only CODE being right

      But so angry at the impotence of his own faction

      We simply ignore him, smug in our own rightness

      Praise The Code, Praise the Saviour.

  2. This story was boring. Please print more stories that involve salty tears and threats by hisec miners.

  3. Maybe I'm just cynical, but something seems off. I don't think Chip truly believes in the CODE.

    If I didn't know better, it seems Chip is trying to attempt to take the Savior of HiSec title for himself.

    He's trying to strike a deal that caters to those who don't truly believe in the CODE. If you were to agree to his terms, many of the bot-aspirant miners would rejoice and claim he is the true Savior for subjugating CODE.

    It's almost like he is trying to bribe CODE. into ignoring bot-aspirant behavior. It''s been a while since I've seen someone as slimy as ol' Chip here.

    Of course, this is irrelevant because James 315 clearly sees through his ruse.

  4. What's a 'genetic fallacy'?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well genetic infers it is something you are born with, inherited from your ancestors. fallacy is a false argument or position....such as AG. AG = genetic fallacy, i.e., born losers.

    2. LOL - thanks for clarifying :)

    3. Indeed, if Anti-gankers had descendants, by virtue of never having won, their children would, in fact, be "born losers."

      That was lulz worthy, friend.

    5. "The genetic fallacy (also known as the fallacy of origins or fallacy of virtue[1]) is a fallacy of irrelevance where a conclusion is suggested based solely on someone's or something's history, origin, or source rather than its current meaning or context. This overlooks any difference to be found in the present situation, typically transferring the positive or negative esteem from the earlier context."

      Straight from wikipedia.

  5. Hoooooly crap that dude is a piece of work. At no point has he explained how he defeated CODE. Alliance and had 90% of them banned. A quick glance of the Divine Reapers killboard shows no support to his claim. I'm so confused it's not even funny. At this point I just want some closure. Does this guy REALLY think he destroyed CODE.? Or is he just using this as some ploy to rope more people into his Divine Reapers corp? Will we ever know?!?! Saviour I hope you have the answers!!!

  6. He he he. Time to infiltrate Chips corp.

  7. So he wants to be his own vision of CODE. And wants us to join him? I think he's gonna need a permit if he wants to opperate in Highsec.

    1. Miners are required to pay for permits from ALL high sec enforcement organizations.

      If Chip wants to start a miner enforcement organization on his own, we all will applaud his efforts. Miners will just have to calm down and pay two organizations for permits to mine.
