The Extraordinary Compliance Program, Part 3

Previously, on MinerBumping... The Extraordinary Compliance Program inflicted a kind of loss upon Code violators that they'd never known before: The loss of their membership in a corporation. By leveraging CODE.'s elite PvP killboard stats, a simple form EVEmail sent by the Saviour of Highsec was sufficient to bring criminals to justice.


The effect of the Extraordinary Compliance Program was impressive to behold: Rebels who had been smug and disdainful underwent a marvelous transformation.


When they learned the reason that they were being kicked from their corp, they didn't always embrace the Code immediately. But they were given a lot to think about--and plenty of alone time to think about it.


When the carebear in question was a member of an alliance, one might guess that the EVEmails were given less attention. Actually, the opposite is probably true, since alliances were more likely to have diplomats on staff.


Uncle Paul's misbehavior in Gamis occurred more than six months earlier. He'd probably forgotten what he'd said to Kalorned on that day. Now his reckless words came back to haunt him.


"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
-- Sun Tzu


Gantian was taken by complete surprise when his superiors told him that he was responsible for jeopardizing their alliance's future. His mind raced. As far as he could remember, he'd had no interaction with any Agents of the New Order at all. Actually, he was right. However...


Several months earlier, Gantian had been logged making an anti-gank comment in a private channel. Our Agents have eyes and ears everywhere. And they forget nothing.


Gantian had been a member of his corp for more than eight years, and now he was no longer welcome there. It might seem like a high price to pay for making a thoughtless joke in a private channel. Nevertheless, it wasn't about what he'd said. Words are only the symptom of the real problem--thinking bad thoughts about the Code.


Not every Code violator is a suitable candidate for the Extraordinary Compliance Program. Many carebears are members of NPC corps, alt corps, or are the CEOs of their own corps. Others have moved on and joined nullsec alliances, most of which care little about highsec affairs. Since sending a form EVEmail costs no money and virtually no time, some nullsec alliances were recipients of EVEmails from the Extraordinary Compliance Program instead of being filtered out. Normally they ignore wardecs--or in this case, an EVEmail about a potential future wardec--but correspondence from CODE. tends to provoke a reaction anyway.


When word got out about the program, it triggered a firestorm on Reddit. Not for the reasons you might think, though. They didn't complain about the use of wardecs (or threats) to get people kicked from corps. The substance of the program was not commented upon at all, really. And for good reason: The EVEmail contained something so offensive to Redditors that it drew all of their fire.


Like waving a red flag in front of a bull. The most upvoted comments all howled with scorn. You see, although the EVE subreddit is filled with carebears (and players whose highsec alts have been ganked by the New Order), many of them have aspirations to one day become an elite PvP'er. "Relevance" is a more trendy measure of worth, but the carebears still treasure the idea of elite PvP, clutching it tightly in a special place within their hearts. If they work hard enough, and mine enough ore, maybe years from now they'll be allowed to fly a supercap in Pandemic Legion and press "F1" when instructed. This is their fondest wish, their dream of elite PvP. To suggest that their mortal enemies in CODE. practice elite PvP is like plunging a dagger into their souls.


Even so, some on Reddit uttered heresies.


With multiple nearly identical comments about "elite PvP" exhausting that aspect of the conversation, the floor was opened to the more typical Reddit discussion about CODE.


The threat of total Goon domination of nullsec has passed, so the New Order has become EVE's most dangerous organization. Those Goons weren't so bad after all, it seems.

Redditors heavily downvoted the Extraordinary Compliance Program for its abuse of the term "elite PvP". Yet the work continued, its operations moving forward in the shadows.

    4. I thought most of EvE was smarter than the average hisec carebear. The tears in that reddit post changed my mind.
      Most of those idiots wouldn't know pvp if CCP explained it to them, but they still cry and whine about CODE doing it wrong.

      Yea reddit is for losers.

    5. Judging EVE players in general by the activities of the ones who cry on Reddit is a serious mistake. Every game has its bad players. The good players don't have time for Reddit because they're busy making their own fun and being elite.

    6. reddit is for pipsqueaks, faggots, and whiners, like bm. suicide ganking for the win.

  2. Skin and bone the eels but do not cut them up. Lay them on the table, skin side down and sprinkle with grated nutmeg, a little grated lemon zest and the chopped herbs.
    Cut the fish into pieces about 4 inches long. Roll up each piece and tie with strong cotton or fine string. Put the stock, vegetables and bouquet garni into a saucepan and bring to he boil. Add the eels and simmer very gently until tender, for about an hour.
    Lift out the fish take off the cotton or string and place the eels in a basin. Measure the stock and make up to 450 ml with water.
    Add the gelatine to the lemon juice to dissolve the gelatine, then add this to the hot stock. Stir until completely dissolved. Strain this over the fish and leave to set.
    Turn out when cold and serve with a green salad and sliced gherkins.

  3. James, you know that hisec PvP, with its neutral logi and low skill carebear ganks is anything but 'elite'. You know this, so you stress how 'elite' it is at every opportunity. It winds people up, which is why you do it. 'He only does it to annoy, because he knows it teases.'

    3. Carebears are some of the most judgemental and controlling people in existence. That's why they are required to put aside their prejudices and treat gankers with respect.

  6. speaking of extraordinary compliance...

    butthurt miner,

    oh, you are one highly intelligent asshole. holds an ass in electronics and a masters degree in computer science. an understanding of math beyond calculus and high level physics doesn't change the fact that you are still a dumbass when posting on here, you shit for brains monkey fucking faggot. your hitler comparisons with the Savior of Highsec are old, as are you posts about his ass, and calling him out as a cannibal. your satire news stories about tragic events which you spin to make it look like its Code's fault is way past its prime. and let's not forget the bullshit about CODE being the same as islamic terrorists. it's a game you pedophile.

    i am sick and tired of the shit you post here, and the shit that we deal with at work because of you. "correctness of code" and other such bullshit. code does not smell, people do. You sign your posts with BM which is short for your handle on here, but i know for a fact that it stands for bowel movement. for you to say my code is smelly is a slap in the face because you smell like a bowel movement. so go take a shower you freak, then do the world a favor and go hang yourself from a tall tree using a short rope and go swinging like the monkey butt faggot that you are.

    harden the fuck up, get a permit or get rek'd.

    glory be to james 315 and the new order of highsec.

    6. What the flying fuck?

      It is kinda obvious that you know who I am, dipshit. Nice job there putting my credentials online here for everyone to see, asshole. If I wanted to share, I would have. So who the fuck are you? Mike? Jason? Ian? I was going to add Heather to that list, but she wouldn't resort to such lowball tactics. Pam might, but this isn't her style. So who the fuck are you?

      I don't know anyone on the job that plays this game, so maybe I should talk to IT and find out who has been visiting this site from their workstation, or their phone.

      I know you are a coder because of your complaints about my "correctness of code" doctrine. System code is all about correctness, even above performance. If I said your code smells, then it probably does.

      I am not sure who you are, but I will find out. You can bet on it, dumbass.

      BM.

    7. this shows just how stupid you are, bm. you think that i am going to incriminate myself by telling you who i am? wrong again fucktard. i would like to see you try to find out who i am. i dont post from my workstation or issued phone. so good luck with that. so what good does your credentials do you now, mr. crypto?

      i'll call you by your in real life first name, richard and that you live in palo alto, ca, usa.

      and you still stink like my morning bowel movement. actually, it smells better than you.

      get a permit or get rek'd

    More created content and emergent game play. CODE. has done more for the player experience than any other alliance. What would all these carebears have to bitch about if it wasn't for us?

    No need to thank us. Your tears are all the thanks we need. Like a parent scolding an insolent child, they may not like it now but they'll thank us later.
