Previously, on MinerBumping... Mission Ready Mining, the sixth-largest corporation in EVE, was humbled by a single Agent of the New Order, Georgia B Dixie. Her bumping activities in the Gelhan system eventually drew the attention of the mega corporation's CEO, Gai Heiyuu. Gai then engaged Georgia in a spirited debate about the true meaning of the Code. Without warning, Gai made a jaw-dropping accusation about the New Order.
Agent Georgia has seen a lot in her time as a Code enforcer. But even she was completely stunned to hear Gai claim that the Saviour of Highsec has long been permabanned for RMT.
Not to toot my own horn, but if I were indeed banned for RMT, it would turn the EVE galaxy upside down and shake the game to its very core. This was the first Georgia had heard of the permaban, so she was eager to learn more.
Our Agent was particularly surprised to hear about the permaban since she'd seen me log in relatively recently. Gai was unmoved--as though he'd been expecting Georgia to say something like that.
The CEO of Mission Ready Mining took his accusations to the next level. He was convinced that everyone who claimed to see me was actually part of a massive cover-up. The New Order was engaged in a conspiracy of epic proportions.
While Georgia attempted to regain her composure, Gai went on to muse about the true intentions behind our Agent's bumping of miners in Gelhan.
For a moment, Gai experienced a twinge of doubt. What if I wasn't banned? He would look pretty silly, then. Gai quickly verified that I was indeed permabanned. Conspiracy confirmed.
A few years ago, it seems, I was permabanned for RMT. My name will need to be added to the ranks of the Permabanned Heroes of the Code.
Cancel the conspiracy. Everything's cool.

Though Gai had been proven wrong about the whole permaban/cover-up thing, there was still the important matter of Gai's interpretation of the Code.
Gai toyed with the idea of sending me an EVEmail to get my opinion about whether non-AFK miners need permits to mine in highsec. If the Saviour backed him up, maybe he could still win this argument.
Suddenly, the conversation was interrupted by a member of The Marmite Collective. Had Mission Ready Mining hired yet another mercenary outfit to retake control of the Gelhan system?
