The Relay Race

Although our Agents are perhaps best known for winning massive, cataclysmic victories, the day-to-day business of saving highsec can be compared to a relay race: A series of small victories won in succession by Agents who enable other Agents to build upon their progress.


Consider Agent Nicolas Dupre's encounter with James Grenia, which was recorded in Highsec Miner Grab Bag #99. Nicolas had just ganked Grenia's 570 million isk Retriever. Instead of a "gf", Nicolas was treated to accusations of child rape.

Months later, Grenia unexpectedly met up with yet another of our Agents, Zeke N Destroy. The occasion for their meeting was some superb PvP where Zeke's Catalyst decisively defeated Grenia's 110 million isk Covetor.
Zeke N Destroy > o7
James Grenia > fuck you faggot
Zeke N Destroy > Miner, calm down
James Grenia > fuck you
James Grenia > you still fuck little boys
Zeke N Destroy > I feel you're not calm
At first, it seemed as though Grenia hadn't learned much from his earlier encounter with the New Order; he was still talking about child molestation. But at least he wasn't flying half-billion isk Retrievers anymore.
Zeke N Destroy > You were steal James 315's ore in an illegal mining ship without a permit. You had to be removed before you did more damage.
James Grenia > dream on fag
Zeke N Destroy > Have you even read the CODE?
Zeke N Destroy > www.minerbumping.com/p/the-code.html
James Grenia > fuck you and your code
James Grenia > fake code fuck head
Grenia didn't pretend to be ignorant of the Code. He knew about it--he just didn't believe in it.
Zeke N Destroy > And you didn't offer me a GF after entering into consentual and honorable combat. Kinda rude.
James Grenia > honorable i have no guns child molester
Zeke N Destroy > You had faction drones. You obviously were expecting to be shot at some time.
James Grenia > stick it up your ass where your faggot father does
James Grenia > is that the same mouth you suck your dads cock with
There's an interesting contrast to be drawn here between Agents and bot-aspirants. Our Agents are expertly trained, and over time they only get better and better at winning debates with the carebears they gank. Miners like Grenia, on the other hand, make the same losing arguments to multiple Agents.
Zeke N Destroy > Let the love of James 315 flow thru your cold soul, miner.
James Grenia > and a bible thumper
Zeke N Destroy > And I'm still waiting for the 10 million ISK you owe me for a mining permit
James Grenia > fuck you and your fake god
Grenia had no faith whatsoever in the ability of the Code to keep his ship safe. He should've given it a try--whatever he was doing clearly wasn't working.
Zeke N Destroy > Don't be a goofus. You can make a difference and make Hi-Sec a better place for all of us.
James Grenia > send me your home address and we can talk
James Grenia > bitch
Zeke N Destroy > Agal I - Kaalakiota Corporation Factory
James Grenia > no your real address
James Grenia > start with ip
Often, highsec miners will say they simply want to be left alone. Not Grenia. He was very interested in meeting our Agent.
Zeke N Destroy > Why would you want that?
James Grenia > to come give you what you want
Zeke N Destroy > Real life threats is a bannable offense and I know you don't want to do that.
James Grenia > no threat
Zeke helped pull Grenia from the edge of the cliff. The Code states, "They ask what I am 'saving' them from. I save the miners from themselves." There's really an answer for everything in there.
Zeke N Destroy > Still waiting on my 10 million ISK. If you could comply with the CODE we can get past this ugliness.
James Grenia > fuck off
James Grenia > you get nothing
James Grenia > i just lost everything so dream on little boy
Finally, Grenia confessed that his 110 million isk Covetor contained all that he owned. Since barges can be used to make money (albeit very slowly), he must've been ganked immediately after purchasing it. Or, more likely, he was lying like a typical bot-aspirant.
Zeke N Destroy > You got insurance from the ship. Send me 10 mil off that.
James Grenia > you dont know honor
Zeke N Destroy > Code.=honor
James Grenia > nope
James Grenia > you just showed how stupid you are
Despite Grenia's conduct, he, like most highsec miners, claimed the moral high ground.
Zeke N Destroy > we're getting off track here. You stole James 315's ore and you were punished. Can you see the folly of your ways and pledge to right your wrongs?
James Grenia > wrong
James Grenia > and stupid
Zeke N Destroy > Yes. You were acing in a wrong a stupid manner. Good. Admitting your mistakes is the first step.
Agent Zeke gave Grenia the benefit of the doubt by assuming the miner had called his own actions wrong and stupid.
Zeke N Destroy > Flying a CODE. compliant ship with a permit is the next step. You're on the path to redemption.
Zeke N Destroy > Sadly, my wallet is still missing your 10 million pledge.
James Grenia > good
James Grenia > i will put it as bounty though
Zeke N Destroy > I think we've made good progress here tonight. You'll contact me when you're ready to get that permit?
Zeke N Destroy > Don't wait too long tho. CODE. is on patrol 23/7.
Even a small amount of progress is progress. Zeke managed to engage the miner in a conversation which, for literally minutes at a time, had nothing to do with child molestation. Thanks to Zeke's hard work, the next Agent to gank Grenia will have an easier time selling him a permit. The baton is passed again.

  4. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 NIV

  5. Do not keep false gods anon 645, for James 315 is the only one here.

    2. Well, Mr. Galaxy Pig, check this out:

      "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." Matt 7:6 KJV

      Remember, you are the one calling yourself a pig. Oh, and don't forget this little gem:

      "And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Exodus 20:1-3 KJV

      So Mr. Galaxy Pig, if you are holding James 315 as a god (note lower case), then you are in non-compliance with the First Commandment. There is only ONE God, and he is:

      "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." Rev 1:8 KJV

      So to you and the whole lot of you, my advise is this: Get right with Jesus, because if you are caught dead without him, you won't be going to Heaven.

    6. Nice to see people quoting the good book. No one ever takes a look at Mathew 6:5 though.
      Remember what Jesus would do, I don't think this "butthurt miner" knows that quite yet.
