Friends, Members of the Court and fellow Capsuleers: I humbly and gratefully accept This award for my work against criminality and the generous prize of 1ISK.

Who would have believed that when we started this journey on May 14, YC115, we — I say we because we are a team — would have received a hefty sum of votes, the most in the history of the Court of Crime and Punishment?

And that the Court would get 60 percent more votes than it received eight years ago. Who would have believed it? The Knights of GD on the other hand, received 20 percent fewer votes than they got four years ago, not so good.

Together, we will lead our party back to the top, and we will lead our Sub Forum back to safety, prosperity, and peace. We will be a Sub Forum of Content and Banter. But we will also be a Sub Forum of law and order.

Our Thread occurs at a moment of crisis for our Sub Forum. The attacks on our Enforcers such as Max Trix, and the terrorism in our Threads, threaten our very way of life. Any Court Member who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our Sub Forum.

Capsuleers watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of Safety in our Stations and the boring grind it brings to our Systems. Many have witnessed this Monotony personally. Some have even been its victims.

I have a message for all of you: The Excitement and Content that today is absent from our Sub Forum will soon — and I mean very soon come Back bigger and better than ever. Beginning on January 20th YC120, Content will be restored.

The most basic duty of Officials is to Bring Meaning the lives of the citizens. Any Official that fails to do so is an Official unworthy to lead.

It is finally time for a straightforward assessment of the state of our Sub Forum. I will present the facts plainly and honestly. We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore.

So if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully-crafted lies, and the Propaganda myths — the Knights of GD are holding their Thread next week. Go there.

But here, at our Thread, there will be no lies. We will honor the Capsuleers with the truth, and nothing else.

These are the facts:

Decades of progress made in emergent content and player interaction are now being reversed by this administration's focus on safety and boredom.

Content last year decreased by 17% in New Edens fifty largest Systems. That's the largest decrease in 25 years.

In our Sub Forum's capital, Player interaction has fallen by 50 percent. They are down nearly 60 percent in nearby Market Discussion. I believe this is due to falling interaction numbers.

The number of Content providers not engaged in the line of duty has fallen by almost 50 percent compared to this point last year.

Nearly 180 legal immigrants with no criminal records, ordered deported from our Sub Forum, are tonight roaming free mine unhindered.

The number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year to other arenas such as Albion and Crowfall already exceeds the entire total of 2015.

They are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources and are leaving after experiencing the tedium that is mining.

One such border-crosser was released and made his way to WoW. There, he Provided content to the citizens the likes of which have not been seen in months here.

Tonight, I will share with you for action for Crime and Punishment. The most important difference between our plan and that of our opponents, is that our plan will put Crime and Punishment first. Crime and punishmentism, not Forumism, will be our credo.

As long as we are led by Officials who will not put Crime and Punishment first, then we can be assured that other Sub Forums will not treat Crime and Punishment with respect. The respect that we deserve. The Crime and Punishment Capsuleers will come first once again.

First, my plan will begin with Content at home which means No safeties, more Enforcement Agents, and protection of content providers. There can be no prosperity without Content.

On the economy, I will outline reforms to add millions of new jobs and trillions in new wealth that can be used to rebuild Crime and Punishment.

A number of these reforms that I will outline tonight will be opposed by some of our Sub Forum's most powerful special interests. That is because these interests have rigged our political and economic system for their exclusive benefit. Believe me. It is for their benefit. For their benefit.

Big business, elite propaganda and major donors are lining up behind the campaign of my opponent because they know she will keep our rigged system in place. They are throwing money at her because they have total control over every single thing she does. She is their puppet, and they pull the strings. That is why her message is that things will never change. Never ever.

My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now. Every day I wake up determined to deliver a better life for the people all across this Sub Forum that had been ignored, neglected and abandoned.

I have visited the laid-off Suspect Baiters, and the Stations crushed by our horrible and unfair Citadel Mechanics. These are the forgotten men and women of our Sub Forum, and they are forgotten, but they will not be forgotten long. These are people who work hard but no longer have a voice. I am your voice.

I have embraced crying Scammers who have lost their Scams because our Officials put their personal agendas for safety before the Sub Forum’s good.

I have no patience for Monotony. No tolerance for Officials incompetence. When innocent people suffer, because our political system lacks the will, or the courage, or the basic decency to enforce our laws, or worse still, has sold out to some corporate lobbyist for cash I am not able to look the other way. And I won't look the other way.

I have joined the political arena so that the people providing the content will no longer no longer be pushed to the side in favour of those who fail to interact with others.

Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it. I have seen firsthand how the system is rigged against our citizens, just like it was rigged against Thermal Damage. He never had a chance.

But his supporters will join our movement, because we will fix his biggest issue: Trade deals that strip our Sub Forum of jobs and the distribution of wealth in the Sub Forum.

Millions of Knights of GD will join our movement, because we are going to fix the system so it works fairly and justly for each and every Forum User.

In this cause, I am proud to have at my side the next Deputy Judge of the Court of Crime and Punishment, Mobadder Thworst: President of Veers ‘No NewBro Left Behind’ Initiative and Owner and Operator of the Umokka Third Party Services. And a great guy. We will bring the same economic success to Crime and Punishment that Mobadder brought Umokka, which is amazing. He is a man of character and accomplishment. He is the right man for the job.

The first task for our new administration will be to liberate our citizens from the monotony and tedium and Boredom that threatens their — our Forums.

Crime and Punishment is a Sub Forum of believers, dreamers, and strivers that is being opressed by a group of censors, critics, and cynics. Remember: All of the people telling you you can't have the Sub Forum you want, are the same people, that would not stand, I mean they said Noragen does not have a chance of being here tonight, not a chance, the same people. We love defeating those people, don't we? Love it.

No longer can we rely on those same people. In the media and politics who, will say anything to keep a rigged system in place. Instead, we must choose to believe in Crime and Punishment.

History is watching us now. We don't have much time. It's waiting to see if we will rise to the occasion, and if we will show the whole world that Crime and Punishment is still free and independent and strong.

I am asking for your support tonight so that I can be your champion in the Cross Forum Thunderdome. And I will be a champion.Your champion.

My opponents ask her supporters to recite a three hundred word loyalty Essay.

I choose to recite a different pledge. My pledge reads: "I'm with you the Crime and Punishment people."

I am your voice. So to every Content provider who dreams for the newbros, and every Newbro who dreams to be an Omega, I say these words to you tonight: I'm with you, and I will fight for you, and I will win for you.

To all Capsuleers tonight, in all our Stations and Citadels, I make this promise:
We will make Crime and Punishment strong again.
We will make Crime and Punishment proud again.
We will make Crime and Punishment Exciting again.
And we will make Crime and Punishment great again!
Bob bless you and goodnight! I love you!

You know me better than that, Noragen. Every word; every damn word.

Be sure to post updates for any events; I almost missed the last one. Video capture and informed commentary would be great additions to the Thunderdome kit, if they can be conveniently arranged.

Your observations are candid and well-observed. The decline in C&P activity mirrors - more or less - the weakening or removal of several play styles whose exponents formed the backbone of this place. They've left, or switched to other activities for which this sub-forum provides no welcome.

Without the Merc ads, our list of threads would be threadbare indeed. That situation must change. I'm pleased that you and your lieutenant Mobadder Thworst have decided that inertia is probably not the best advert for our sub-forum (or, in fact, any of them), and have therefore promised to act.

Good on you!

I would like to apologize for the format. I wrote it intending it to be read out as a speech and to note to myself when to take a meaningful pause. It held up ok on palm cards but didn't translate so well to a thread

C&P used to be a fun read.

Maybe this is what happens when dissenting voices get swamped , people get tired of being told to post with their main or GTFO, and mobile devices run out of power scrolling through the latest rant from Teckos Pech.

Consider it like a trial, Noragen.

It wasn't easy, for Tony Stark to build that, in a cave, with a box of scraps.
It wasn't easy, for the Link to obtain the three spiritual stones.
It wasn't easy, for Al Bundy to keep going to that store every day.
It wasn't easy, for Martin to defeat Badrang, and reclaim his fathers sword.


But that's what made it worth the effort.

That will only happen when the old protagonists decide to do battle on here and in game again, I don't see that happening in the short/long term as we have lost our way with the blob and rep mentality, Bring back the honour in PVP as It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.

C&P Forum is an essential part of the Meta Game, to ban someone is to loose them from the community.

When fellow mountain climbers say they climb for personal reasons not the glory; I ask what they sacrificed in weight, shaving grams off in different parts of their kit to make their pack lighter. Then I ask them why they still took a heavy camera to photograph the summit.

If you can't share a record of the experience why summit.


When Holeysheet1 was muted on the forums with a permaban who could he share his exploits. Therefore his existence in Eve felt meaningless.



CCP needs to rethink the system of bans or give certain latitude within limited forums such as C&P - Enter at your own risk regardless of bruised ego's.

Sure some have poor impulse control and a foul tongue, but Reddit seems to have found a balance.

They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Alliances will rise and fall, but one constant in Eve is the smouldering dumpster that is C & P.
