Previously, on MinerBumping... Alyssa Yazria purchased a mining permit from Agent Aaaarrgg after he killed her Retriever. However, Alyssa didn't seem interested in forming a friendship with Aaaarrgg or in absorbing the Code on a deep level; she only wanted to know where to send her money. Before long, Alyssa lost another Retriever, this time to members of the Wreckonomics corporation.
Alyssa was annoyed by the gank--so much so that she mistakenly referred to herself as being "podded", though actually she only lost her mining vessel. However, the miner took comfort in the power of her permit.
The spokesman of the ganker squad, Razakien Okel, clearly knew more about the Code than Alyssa did. The miner complained that she'd only gone out for a "quick smoke". Carebears, if you're really going to be so quick, why don't you dock up for the duration of the smoke? By your own admission, you'll only lose a small amount of mining time.
Rather than apologizing, Alyssa doubled-down on her grievance. She cursed the gankers for playing EVE the way it's meant to be played.
When Alyssa was ganked by Aaaarrgg, she complained about the stress of having her mother in the ICU. Now she had a whole new batch of personal problems that supposedly justified violating the Code that she'd agreed to obey.
Razakien offered to help the miner, but she was too busy confessing her heretical opinions about the Code.
Highsec miners are known for their extraordinary hypocrisy: They look down on people for ganking miners because it lacks skill/risk, yet they purposefully engage in the least skillful/risky activity in EVE. Alyssa's own response to this suggests a retort that could be used by our Agents: "My main is an elite nullsec PvP'er. I only use this character to relax and chill by ganking carebears in highsec."
Of course, Alyssa's reaction to being ganked proved that she did not, in fact, have some heroic nullsec main. If she hated being ganked in highsec, she could spend more time on her nullsec character, instead of threatening to quit EVE entirely.
The miner sent a complaint letter to Aaaarrgg, the Agent who'd sold her the mining permit. She then realized a potential problem: Did the Wreckonomics corporation have anything to do with the Code? Unlike Aaaarrgg, they're not a member of the mighty CODE. alliance.
In fact, virtually all suicide ganking in highsec is performed by Agents of the New Order. You might run into a few who gankers aren't affiliated with us in some way, but basically anyone who ganks believes wholeheartedly in the Code. We're ridiculously relevant.
Alyssa didn't wait for a response from Aaaarrgg. She went right back into the asteroid belts and, several hours later, Wreckonomics corp ganked her again. And this time, they made sure to get her pod, too.
Agent Razakien had been courteous enough to invite Alyssa to a convo, but she only accepted the invite after she was ganked. She accused our heroes of stealing her implants (if only it were possible!).
Not every miner is a quick study. Some need to be repeatedly killed before they can learn anything new. Guess which type of miner Alyssa is?
Alyssa finally admitted that she never cared about the Code. She only wanted an easy way to avoid the inconvenience of PvP and other players in a multiplayer PvP game. Without absolute safety--while AFK--Alyssa saw no purpose in continuing with EVE. I suppose her illustrious nullsec character wasn't reason enough.
With that in mind, I'd like to propose some additional content for the EVE tutorial: "Attention new players: If you can't obey the Code, GET OUT."
