There's more than one way to skin a carebear.
Agent Lawrence Lawton has noticed an uptick in the number of miners using blingy drones in highsec. The use of such drones is absolutely illegal under the Code. Fortunately, our Agents have the power to confiscate them.
It's common for Agents to send carebears a friendly post-gank EVEmail telling them how to play EVE correctly. It occurred to Agent Lawrence that sometimes taking a miner's drones inflicts an even greater loss of isk than a gank would. Thus, Lawrence now sends miners a message when he executes a "bump and grab".
As pictured here, Lawrence used a Machariel to bump an Orca 270+ kilometers away from its illegal drones. The miner rejected his convo request.
...Or perhaps the miner's convo requests were blocked by default. Either way, his refusal to communicate with the Agent cost him.
Stealing drones in this manner doesn't get recognized on killboards, so Lawrence has begun keeping a public spreadsheet of his activities. In the past few months, Lawrence has confiscated over 20 billion isk worth of drones!
Miner bumping pays.
The Lawton School for Pubbies Who Can't Mine Good is a wonderful organization. As a result of their good fortune, they were able to purchase 3,000 additional shares of New Order stock, which took us past the 1,589, 1,590, and 1,591 billion isk marks and earned the Lawton School a Triple Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
And for all the whiny carebears reading today's post, what I've just described is EVE game mechanics working as intended.
