We all know that buying New Order shares helps our Agents to save highsec. But what a lot of people may not realize is that the Anti-Gankers really, really hate it when they read MinerBumping and see that someone's bought a bunch of shares. Last week, Hrothgar Nilsson made a stunning purchase of 32.7 billion worth of shares. This was bound to prompt a response. Within a few hours of the MinerBumping post going up, Hrothgar received an EVEmail from notorious Anti-Ganker Rusell:
Google Translate would be of little use here, but I'm guessing this was just a bizarre and indirect way of saying, "Stop giving the New Order money." Hrothgar penned a reply, only to find out that Rusell had preemptively blocked him:
Speaking as a neutral observer of this exchange, I'd say Hrothgar won the debate.
Several other shareholders sent me EVEmails this week.
Of course, it's not required to write an essay when you buy shares. In fact, buying shares is so easy! Simply transfer isk to James 315; as I told Counsul Shakiel, you don't need to be in a corp or anything.
Doubloons received. But they were not quite enough to get us over the next billion isk mark...
There it is. Black Pedro purchased 1,000 additional shares, sending us past the 1 trillion 155 billion isk mark and earning him a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
And the next milestone was reached thanks to Erika von Heisenberg, who opened a New Order account to purchase 350 shares, sending us past the 1 trillion 156 billion isk mark and earning her a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
Anti-Gankers, don't be discouraged by the generosity of our shareholders. Learn from them!
