Brel'nam Maken was using a Venture to mine in the historic Kamio system. He didn't know anything at all about Kamio--not until he lost his ship there. At that moment, he became part of Kamio's rich history.
Agent Yucie Van Burean had a sneaking suspicion that Brel'nam was ignorant about highsec. She was right.
Brel'nam was in luck. He'd gone to Kamio for the ore, but he'd received so much more. What could be a more authentic Kamio experience than losing one's mining ship to a suicide ganker?

The miner's ignorance was astonishing. For some reason, he thought that suicide gankers are supposed to reimburse miners for the ships they destroy. If that were true, what kind of game would EVE be? CCP would lose so many subscribers with a game like that.
Brel'nam disobeyed Agent Yucie's explicit instructions. To review, then: Gankers are supposed to give money to carebears, and miners aren't supposed to calm down? This guy was following one goofy code.
Yucie offered the miner invaluable advice about how to make isk. But Brel'nam "enjoyed" mining. You could tell how much fun he was having.
The moment of truth had arrived. Regular readers of MinerBumping know that the ultimate litmus test is to speak my name in the presence of another player and see how he responds to it.
One can imagine how Agent Yucie's pure heart sank. The miner instinctively felt negative emotions about me. He was a Goofus.
Yucie tested the miner further. Brel'nam confirmed that he was too lazy to even try joining the Anti-Ganking "community". Of course, the Anti-Gankers do nothing but fail; Brel'nam didn't want to waste the time, so he preemptively declared himself powerless. He would've fit right in with the Anti-Gankers, actually.
Bot-aspirants are devoid of common sense. They see no reason why they should try to avoid being ganked, or to calm down. Instead, their programming directs them to lose ships and be angry all the time. Apparently they think this is a good plan.
It amazes me how many miners hate me, even though they've never met me. If only they knew all the things I've done for highsec miners over the years!
Brel'nam vowed to continue losing ships and being angry. Clearly, this miner wasn't prepared for EVE--even after being mentored by Yucie. Some miners need to be helped many, many times before they're ready for highsec.
