One of the most frequently quoted posts in MinerBumping history is the New Order Bathroom Protocol. Contrary to carebear spin, this policy doesn't restrict the rights of miners; it expands them. Long story short, miners are permitted to leave their barges in an asteroid belt or ice anomaly and go AFK to use the bathroom. If they get permission from an Agent.
An anonymous commenter on a recent post came up with a fine suggestion for improving highsec miner bathroom conduct--to the miner's benefit as well as everyone else's. It's hard to argue with good hygiene, though I wouldn't be surprised to see the Anti-Ganking crowd come out against washing one's hands.
The following additional rules apply to all highsec miners who go AFK to use the bathroom:
1. Miners must thoroughly wash both of their hands with soap and water immediately after using the bathroom (and before returning to their keyboard).
2. When an Agent asks a miner whether he washed his hands, the miner must answer the question truthfully.
3. When an Agent asks a miner whether he washed his hands, the miner isn't allowed to act all offended.
The New Order continues to make life better for all in highsec!
