Still don't get it? Let me make this easy for you.
Without the Code...
...and with the Code. Any questions? If not, let's get started on the latest edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!
Miners complain about oppression, but they're the ones who keep themselves down.
I'd make a joke about carebears being used to tasting "da feet", but let's change the subject before this becomes a theme.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Agents of the New Order are the rock stars of EVE.
...Highsec miners, less so.
Again, the miners ruin their own games. No one needs to become a miner when they sign up for EVE. There are so many other, more rewarding careers--even for new players. You could become a Code enforcer, etc., etc., etc. The possibilities are endless.
Yeah, you can tell Element42a Okaski would've been totally on board with buying a permit, had he been asked. I'm sure he would've been really polite about it, too.
Fewer miners run the risk of unlicensed mining these days. Don't worry, we still monitor those who carry permits. A mining permit is not a license to violate the Code.
How can you tell if a permit-carrying miner is merely a Goofus who spent 10 million isk? A gank will result in an embarrassing killmail and some tears.
Fox, Falco, Sheik, Marth... It doesn't matter. With Grous Rivera's attitude, you know he lost.
The Code is a mirror. People who look at the Code and see its glories are glorious people. On the other hand, those who look at the Code and see garbage are trash.
Check out those timestamps. It took Donnian nearly four years to reply. He was probably AFK the whole time.
2018 is already shaping up to be an outstanding year for the Code.
