Agent Kalorned has been an Agent of the New Order for many years now. Countless miners have learned about the Code from him. When someone like Kalorned ganks your Mackinaw, an appropriate response would be something along the lines of, "Thank you for your service."
Goofuses rarely thank people for their service. From Kalorned's incident report:
Once in a while as I'm out doing what I do, I run into especially strange miners. It's one thing to spend nearly six years in the game mining, it's quite another to do so and somehow manage to never have any losses on a killboard. Such was the rare creature I encountered one fine Monday afternoon in Boranai, when I met BARANDYWINE SHAWN-NEE.
Mining in a Mackinaw in the safe and cuddly 0.9 system, BARANDYWINE failed to respond to me when I greeted her in local, opting instead to continue mindlessly mining the Pyroxeres in front of her without so much as a friendly wave back. I responded to her rudeness by destroying her Mackinaw.
Miners can be so fickle. They're always telling Kalorned and our other Agents that they should "give a warning before shooting". But when they do receive a warning, they don't appreciate it.
As her character name suggests, BARANDYWINE was a big fan of the Caps Lock key. Not a big enough fan to keep her at her keyboard while she mined, but still a pretty big fan. Our Agent feared that once BARANDYWINE started typing in all-caps, she might not stop. Time to hit the pause button and start over. Kalorned was in no mood for a conversation with another crazy, abusive miner.
But in highsec, we must take the miner as we find him. Kalorned sighed, rolled up his sleeves, and got to work sorting out the mess.
BARANDYWINE claimed total innocence. She was as sweet and pure as a Mackinaw pilot could be in a 0.9 security system without a permit.
Our Agents are almost universally described as "tough, but fair". Kalorned set the miner straight. He was there to help her, but he wouldn't tolerate any nonsense.
BARANDYWINE was one of those people who likes to mine with the local window closed. She didn't want anything to compete for her attention while she was focused on mining. I guess having Kalorned's Catalyst alts pumping antimatter into her face was a little distracting.
The miner was furious at Kalorned. However, he strongly suspected there was more to BARANDYWINE's story than a lost Mackinaw. She was probably in a bad mood because she lacked the Code.
BARANDYWINE abruptly stopped speaking with Kalorned. Our Agent later deduced that at this point, she finally began to read the termination notice she'd received in her EVEmail. At the end of Kalorned's EVEmail, BARANDYWINE found what she was looking for: Svara Eir was designated as the Reimbursement Officer to talk to if she wanted to get her stuff back.
...And BARANDYWINE definitely wanted her stuff back.
Before long, an ominous window popped up on Svara Eir's screen.
