Dear CALDARI STATE CHIEF EXECUTIVE PANEL,
let me respectfully remind you of what tends to be just as “VITA L TO STATE INTERESTS” as informing your enlisted capsuleers about current objectives:
Not annoying them while doing so. Not displaying disgraceful incompetence like in the last messages. They were nothing in their shape and form but that: An unworthy display of neglecting a simple, yet fundamental principle - readability.
I am a veteran of war, tournaments, and guerilla campaigns. But most of all, I am a capsuleer with funds and experience. And I highly value clear communication.
If you want pilots like me to side with you in this conflict, stop shouting “SPECIAL ORDERS” in full capslock at us. It does not make you look important, nor does it reflect the urgency at hand. The only thing this achieves is to reduce the readability of your orders, and my respect for you.
For the safety and success of your efforts in this matter, I’d like to recommend a reconsideration of the council’s style of communication. I worry less coolheaded pilots taking offense and acting in ways counterproductive to the State’s interests.
With respectful regards,
