Previously, on MinerBumping... What would happen if a bumper never stopped bumping? That's what Mission Ready Mining, EVE's sixth-largest corporation, was finding out. Agent Georgia B Dixie had absolute command over the Gelhan system. Everything MRM had thrown at her had completely failed to stop her.
Highsec miners cry tremendous tears when they lose a ship, it's true. But most miners don't need to lose a ship to cry. A bump or two will do.
redneck atkinson got bumped so hard and so often that it began to impair his cognitive functioning--and he didn't have much to spare.
The fact was, Agent Georgia couldn't be stopped. For weeks, MRM tried every trick in the book and none of it worked. New Order supremacy was the new normal.
redneck wasn't the only miner going mad. The rest of MRM's miners remained docked up, waiting for hours for Georgia to leave. It was a terrible life for these non-compliant miners.
The next day, Georgia was back at it in the Gelhan system. A few MRM miners tried to get in some early morning mining, but they were quickly shooed out of the ice anomaly.
One of the MRM miners, Xavier Forlorne, was completely fed up. He demanded to know whether Georgia would admit to the crime of long-term harassment. And he wouldn't accept anything other than a yes or no answer.
Unfortunately, Agent Georgia didn't really feel like playing the "yes or no" game. Xavier didn't make the rules; Georgia did. She'd proven that much already.
Xavier's furious questioning continued. "Are you now, or have you ever been, a Code enforcer?"
Georgia rolled her eyes at the demanding miner. She didn't owe Xavier an explanation or anything else. The guy didn't even have a permit.
Agent TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet spoke up on Georgia's behalf. And Xavier, it seemed, spoke for CCP. He claimed to know a lot about their preferences, including CCP's dislike of role-playing games. (They sure got into the wrong business if that's true.)
Xavier felt satisfied that "do what you will" qualified as a confession. He would forward a screenshot of TheInternet's statement to CCP and demand that our Agents be permabanned. Now all Xavier had to do was wait for CCP to come to the rescue. But could the miners of MRM hold out for that long--or would they lose their minds forever?
