The Cowardly Miner
Santhorn Nellson sent this message shortly before he lost his corp and all of its assets. What did he learn from this experience?
Not enough, apparently.
Agent Guybertini punished Santhorn for violating highsec law with an anti-tanked Retriever. Yet the miner refused to change his mind about the Code.
Bot-aspirancy is a dangerous thing. Guybertini understood that if Santhorn persisted, the miner was sure to lose more assets in the future.
...But the non-compliant miners tend to be ungrateful ones, too.
And there was more at stake than Santhorn's isk. His emotional well-being also fell under Guybertini's jurisdiction.
Incredibly, Santhorn accused our Agent of being a coward. Generally speaking, winning at PvP is not an act of cowardice. Refusing to accept the reality of the New Order's dominion over highsec, on the other hand, is as cowardly as it gets.
The miner wallowed in self-pity. Guybertini wondered if he was getting through to Santhorn at all.
Santhorn continued to gnash his teeth. No, words alone would not be enough to convince this miner.
Despite losing a mining ship only a few hours earlier, Santhorn was growing more obnoxious, rather than less. Something was up.
So Guybertini ganked him again.
The Code never stops. And a bot-aspirant miner never stops failing.
Alas, Santhorn can expect more failure in his future.
