You see that? "I woke up to do some Code enforcement." That's commitment.
Agent Myevil Gankalt is one of many who use the art of ganking to paint highsec in bright colors. You'd think the rebel miners would pay attention when an Agent enters local, but no. The bot-aspirants aren't even enthusiastic about bot-aspirancy.
Despite being aware of our Agent's presence in local--and having already seen her scout alt creep up to them--the miners lazily chewed on their rocks. Gemini Astrix lost a yield-fit Covetor and a pod. The pod didn't contain implants, though, so no big deal. How upset could someone be about losing a 35 million isk ship?
Remember, these are miners we're talking about.
For a bunch of sluggish barge pilots, miners can pivot surprisingly fast when it comes to conversation. Within seconds, Gemini switched from "Nigger faggot" to "Oh, won't someone protect the newbies and CCP's subscription revenues!" right back to "Cut your wrist, nigger." It's enough to make you wonder how sincere the miners' concerns really are about CCP's financial health.
Gemini's argument was shot down as quickly as his Covetor.
Is it weird that when reading this chatlog, my first thought was, "Do people really shoot each other in the hands?" Maybe four years of highsec has desensitized me to some of this nonsense.
Myevil Gankalt carefully read between the lines and concluded that Gemini wasn't satisfied with living under New Order rule. Perhaps it was time for a change.
According to the carebear apologists, the only reason people like Gemini say these things is because our Agents provoke them. Who wouldn't behave this way after losing 35 million isk, right? And being told to buy a mining permit for 10 million isk. No wonder!
If you've been playing EVE for five years and you "have no chance of fighting back," the problem isn't with our Agents. It's with you.
Agent Myevil reported,
"At the conversation's close, I pointed out that forgiveness is freely offered to those of a contrite heart. Smitten by his convictions and understanding the enormity of his crime, he terminated our chat. I will always wonder what might have been if he had been more receptive to the truth."It was a great "What if?" moment. But I think it's safe to say Gemini Astrix would've been better off if he'd embraced the Code.
