One reason why our Agents don't engage in temper tantrums: They're too focused on facts.
Carebears frequently violate the Code provision that requires them to show good sportsmanship. Not only do they neglect to drop a "gf" in local after being ganked--they don't even give our Agents props for beating them in an argument. Bing probably knew that the above exchanges weren't going to result in Kevlary saying touché.
As expected, the miner blew up at him. Highsec miners can explode even if they don't have a ship anymore.
Channel Name: Why am I dead?Though Bing won the argument (as usual), he wasn't finished. Bing isn't motivated by glory; he genuinely wants to help miners enjoy playing EVE. To do that, he'd need some assistance from his fellow Agents, who all feel the same way.

EVE System > Channel MOTD: Persons found in breach of the Law of Highsec will henceforth have their equipment decomissioned. This communications frequency should be utilized to discuss said punitive actions and to determine a preventative plan of action to ensure future compliance.
Lament von Gankenheim > invite him hereBing met up with Agents Lament von Gankenheim and Kalorned, who were busy fielding questions in the "Why am I dead?" channel. Kevlary was invited to join. He accepted the invite, but he wasn't happy to be there.
Lament von Gankenheim > Kevlary Odunen \o
Kevlary Odunen > Fuck you.
Lament von Gankenheim > miner, im going to have to ask you to please calm downBasically, it was like an intervention. Kevlary didn't see that he had a problem, though. He thought everyone else had the problem.
Kevlary Odunen > I am calm.
Lament von Gankenheim > greeting other humans with an expletive is not calm.
Kevlary Odunen > Words have meaning.
Kevlary Odunen > Can't handle it....
Kevlary Odunen > You're limitations are your poblem
Kalorned > What limitations do we have?The source of the trouble was quickly identified: Kevlary had insufficient respect and appreciation for the Code.
Kevlary Odunen > Apparently... words.
Lament von Gankenheim > The Code is the greatest compliation of words that EVE has ever seen
Kevlary Odunen > Code is shit
Kevlary Odunen > Fuck code
Kevlary Odunen > Code is bullshit
Bing Bangboom > LVG, Kevlary Odunen isn't a regular miner. He has a pvp alt who is experienced in Eve.Kevlary ignored the Agents' questions and continued his rant. Kevlary didn't think the Code had any value. He should've known better: The Code was clearly more powerful than his untanked Retriever.
Kalorned > Why didn't you say that up front Kevlary?
Kalorned > We took you to be a miner
Kevlary Odunen > Isn't CCP
Kevlary Odunen > Isn't Concord.
Kevlary Odunen > It's bullshit you made up because you can't cut it.The miner tried to impart his own philosophy to our Agents. His philosophy was an empty one. Moreover, he lacked credibility. New Order Agents are in an exalted position, standing at the very pinnacle of EVE success. Kevlary was the angry former owner of a mining barge.
Lament von Gankenheim > i can see youre confused
Kevlary Odunen > I'm not confused in the least.
Kevlary Odunen > Comprehend this....
Kevlary Odunen > It's a big fucking universe.
Lament von Gankenheim > yes it isHow much antimatter does it take to knock some sense into a miner? Our Agents were about to find out.
Lament von Gankenheim > and in highsec
Lament von Gankenheim > you get a permit
Lament von Gankenheim > or you get rekt
Bing Bangboom > He knows that part
Lament von Gankenheim > i dont see a permit in your bioKevlary had an active imagination. He could look at an AFK Retriever and see a PvP warrior. But he couldn't conceptualize a 10 million isk mining permit. A rebel miner's capacity to imagine is usually selective.
Kevlary Odunen > There are not permits in this game.
Lament von Gankenheim > i would love to hear, move in depth about how you are not a miner
Kevlary Odunen > Well....Let me get in my NAGA..... what the fuck am I then?
Lament von Gankenheim > lying?
Kevlary Odunen > I'm captain of whatever fucking ship I'm in.The miner refused to embrace the reality of highsec. He wouldn't praise--or refrain from insulting--the Saviour who had made it possible for him to experience interactive emergent content. He had three Agents helping him, but was there any hope for Kevlary?
Lament von Gankenheim > and James 315 is the captain of whatever ship you are in, in highsec
Kevlary Odunen > Fuck James.
Lament von Gankenheim > miner, calm down
Kevlary Odunen > I am calm.
Kevlary Odunen > I'm just sick of worthless pieces of shits like you that are so retarded that you think I'm going to play this game, by rules you make up.
