Rebel carebears are a paradox. They remain in highsec for the extra safety, yet they reject the safety of the Code--thus ensuring their destruction. Chwho Bacca knew all about the Code, but his failure to obey it led to the demise of his yield-fit Hulk.
If that name sounds familiar, it's because Chwho's EVEmails were featured in Highsec Miner Grab Bag #138.
As you'll recall, Chwho claimed to be the alt of a "big player" from nullsec. Today, let's see if we can discover the identity of his powerful nullsec alliance.
EVE System > Channel changed to Local : GhethAgent Lawrence Lawton was drawn to Chwho in part because the miner had spent so many years in EVE without being recorded on a killboard.
Chwho Bacca > fuck off
Lawrence Lawton > Welcome to zkillboard, 8 year old virgin!
Laanndo > Why would you do that?
Laanndo > He comes backChwho's Orca alt, Laanndo, did most of the talking.
Laanndo > He is an old player
Artemis Athonile > Welcome back to Eve
Lawrence Lawton > I wanted to see what kind of goo you had in your head
Lawrence Lawton > You were also missing a mining permit.
Lawrence Lawton > Kill: Chwho Bacca (Capsule)The highsec miner looked down on our Agent for choosing to PvP in highsec--yet Laanndo himself had spent close to a decade mining in highsec.
Lawrence Lawton > Just a standard set? I feel bullied.
Laanndo > Bunch of yellow belly's
Laanndo > Couldnt survive in null sec
Laanndo > So you come here
Enkidooo Arnolles > We're cowards because we don't want to lose ISK?We've seen that miners are crabby folk who tend to argue with each other; in the absence of an Agent, they'll extract each others' tears. Laanndo accidentally insulted Enkidooo Arnolles, a fellow highsec miner who was offended by the idea that only cowards avoid nullsec.
Lawrence Lawton > As the CEO you should understand that there is no mining in James 315 Territory without permission.
Laanndo > English mofo...do you speak it?
Laanndo > Yeah yeah
Laanndo > James lol
Laanndo > Eat a sausage
Enkidooo Arnolles > Getting tired of bouncing the noobs yet?As Lawrence continued his conversation with Laanndo, Enkidooo became increasingly confused. He thought at least one of the two was talking to him.
Lawrence Lawton > The Code is over five years old now miner. I'm surprised that the other miners in system didn't explain it to you. You must be quite upset with them.
Laanndo > I know who CODe are ya plank
Enkidooo Arnolles > I'm just shaking in my booties
Lawrence Lawton > Bot-aspirancy, missing permit, failure to tank, and AFK.
Laanndo > I know all about you, but my motto is, go and f* yourself :D Cause... MemesOddly, Laanndo insisted that he wasn't botting because he needed to empty his Hulk every few seconds. Apparently he never considered that a bot could perform that task. Regardless, Laanndo was certainly a bot-aspirant.
Laanndo > Bot? In a hulk? What moron would Bot in a hulk :D
Laanndo > You have to empty every few seconds
Laanndo > ffs lol
Enkidooo Arnolles > Look I get what Code is trying to do...I"m not even in oppostion to it
Lawrence Lawton > It's a laundry list of charges miner. I am willing to forgive your crimes if you buy a site license for your corp and promise to follow THE NEW HALAIMA CODE OF CONDUCT.Highsec miner Laanndo continued to pour scorn on all those who live in highsec--his barbs once again hitting Enkidooo by mistake.
Laanndo > CODE are just null sec rejects that gets their as kicked
Laanndo > If you went to the south, yo uwould get your sass handed to ya
Laanndo > But you attack ships without guns
Laanndo > Because your a bunch of nerds that play spaceship games
Enkidooo Arnolles > i'm sorry am I supoosed to be impressed by this?Lawrence wasn't impressed by Laanndo. Our Agents have learned to be very distrustful of highsec miners and their secret nullsec greatness.
Laanndo > No...
Enkidooo Arnolles > Or perhaps you're not talkin to me
Lawrence Lawton > If you're going to play EVE, better to PvP than suck rocks.
Laanndo > ..Go forth little penis man....seed your oats to non pvp players and show the world how small your man hood really is
Laanndo > For all you know I could be apart of a large null sec alliance multi boxingTry as he might, Laanndo couldn't persuade Lawrence to believe him. Needless to say, reimbursement was off the table. For all his bluster, Laanndo did manage to do some good, though--even if by accident.
Laanndo > alts dude
Laanndo > Tell James to suck my turds
Laanndo > Lick my boots
Lawrence Lawton > Calm down miner.
Laanndo > I am not angry
Laanndo > I am just like...that isnt even art what you do lol
It wasn't Laando's intent, but Enkidooo had been stung by Laanndo's anti-highsec remarks. He decided to give up highsec mining and join a nullsec alliance.
And as for Laanndo and his alt?
I guess a highsec miner can only go so long before he grows tired of falsely claiming to belong to a nullsec alliance. The solution: Join a nullsec alliance for real! And with the departure of those miners, highsec becomes a little more compliant.
