Code Ready Gelhan, Part 11

Previously, on MinerBumping... Mission Ready Mining corp's Gelhan division couldn't get a break. Just as one Agent vanished, another appeared. And early signs suggested that Georgia B Dixie was every bit as implacable a bumper as any other in the New Order.


The MRM miners were bumped from the field one after the other. If Georgia had any weaknesses, they were not apparent.


Though the carebears tried to rattle her faith in the Code, Georgia's strength and confidence in the Code only grew. Time for the rebel forces to regroup and reassess.


Higher-ups in MRM instructed all of the miners to remain silent in local. They hoped that if MRM ceased all communications with Georgia, she'd get bored and go away. But as the old saying goes, the bumper will always get through.


Agent Georgia was feeling more and more at home in the Gelhan system. As she ruled the roost, the teeming masses of MRM could only look on and watch.


Occasionally, MRM would send a mining barge or an Orca into the ice anomaly, only to have it unceremoniously swatted back into deep space. It was clear that whatever MRM's strategy was, it was getting nowhere.


For now, MRM was reduced to the occasional idle threat. They weren't even able to maintain comms discipline in local chat. That was only on the surface though--there was no telling what MRM's legions were getting up to behind the scenes.


As the hours wore on, MRM gave up trying to keep its pilots from venting their frustration in local. Medallion Solette had spent all day in Gelhan waiting for Georgia to leave so she could mine. The wait was getting to her.


Medallion repeatedly encouraged our Agent to commit suicide in real life. For some, this might be a bannable offense, though MRM's miners couldn't help but think Georgia was asking for it. What did she expect with all that miner bumping?


Perennial threat-maker Yanamota Acami toyed with a little of the denialist "Bumping? That won't do anything" stuff, to no avail. Georgia looked upon the empty asteroid belts and ice anomaly and was deeply satisfied.


Yanamota's patience ran out. She prepared to go to battle against Georgia's bumping Machariel.


Markiriam Aubaris accused Georgia of being boring. True, she was "forcing" the miners to sit in a station all day instead of mining. Still, the presence of an Agent of the New Order was the most excitement Gelhan was ever going to get.


Besides, although the ice anomaly was a scene of tranquility for now, violence could break out at any moment.

  1. Very good, still a well moderated blog. I am very happy to see you following proper protocols.

    Now some of your commenters such as Galaxy Pig need to quiet down about this, they cry far too much to be considered adults and I believe they may need to verify their ages or get a parents permission as some of the content in your articles may not be age appropriate.

    Trolls win, ALWAYS!

    1. Anonymous bed wetter: crying about others makes for poor trolling. It makes you a cry bear.

      You can thank us later.

    2. You are welcome for a much cleaner and better blog.

      Baseless accusations however are only used by the feeble minded. You must grow up before you can be taken seriously.

      Return to bed child.

    3. See, there you go. An original comment. Those are allowed. We Agents like variety in the tears we ingest. Spam tears get old. Keep up the original tears and you have permission to continue to post here.

    4. Anon 8pm: Thank you for your lacrimations.

      Crybears like yourself are clearly bot-like creatures of habit. Whining and whinging is the only form of expression you have. Sadly it's a truism to never expect anything of value from carebears.

      Except of course, your permit fees and your tears.

      I suppose, the only real purpose to carebears is to be farmed. Like squealing pigs, I suppose.

    5. I am sorry but I do not pay permit fees I am the law here. I am merely making sure your blog here follows rules to make it a less cluttered and more content friendly blog. If it ceases moderation and become cluttered myself and others like me will ensure it returns to moderation, "nerfed" as you call it, and returns to quiet and regulated content instead of chaos.

      You should be happy that we stepped in, now your site is a good site with less clutter.

      Please remain calm and try not to lament as this is a good thing.

    6. Thank you, James 315, for allowing this carebear to comment on your blog. His clear and evident butthurt sustains me. You are indeed a benevolent Savior for providing a platform for him to vent his frustrations and for me to harvest them.

    9. I guess, if you're trying to be trollish, it makes sense to try and single out Galaxy Pig, who besides being an exceptional agent (for YEARS) has been a regular level-headed presence in the comments of this blog.

      It does kind of make you look like a fool though, to anyone who actually pays attention. Good idea stayin anon.

    10. It is good to see Galaxy Pig finally accepting of the new order of things here, however he has a disturbing dependence upon tears. Please help him to overcome this obsession with crying, I sure it has him very dehydrated.

      Troll.

  2. I love all the empty threats the miners throw in local like it's going to scare an Agent way. It would be glorious though if they actually showed up though, just to fail gank.

  5. The definition of a code agent.
    Psychopath

    The PCL describes psychopaths as being callous and showing a lack of empathy, traits which the PPI describes as “coldheartedness.”

    Psychopaths, and to a degree, sociopaths, show a lack of emotion, especially the social emotions, such as shame, guilt, and embarrassment.

    According to Cleckley psychopaths show unreliability, while the PCL mentions “irresponsibility” and the PPI describes psychopaths as showing “blame externalization,” i.e. they blame others for events that are actually their fault.

    Ranging from what the PCL describes as “glibness” and “superficial charm” to Cleckley’s “untruthfulness” and “insincerity,” to outright “pathological lying,” there is a trend toward devaluing speech among psychopaths by inflating and distorting it toward selfish ends.

    The PCL describes sociopaths as possessing a “grandiose sense of self worth.”

    According to Newman and his colleagues the core deficit in psychopathy is a failure of what they call response modulation (Hiatt and Newman, 2006). When normal people engage in a task we are able to alter our activity, or modulate our responses, depending on relevant peripheral information that appears after the task has begun. Psychopaths are specifically deficient in this ability, and according to Newman, this explains the impulsivity of psychopaths, a trait which shows up in several of the lists of criteria, as well as their problems with passive avoidance and with processing emotions.

    The criteria for dissocial personality include, a “very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.” The criteria for antisocial personality disorder include, "irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults.”

    Fits James and his code to the letter.

    1. Is that the 1% from CCP'a study on ganking/rookie retention? Is that where you get that number?

      Follow up question: Do you think it's our goal to make new players quit?

    2. Greater than 1%? I assume you meant less than 1%. Who do you think runs the world? Low level sheep or the 1% elite?

  7. The code is being enforced in Albion right now. James should make a code for Albion so it's all fleshed out.
