Skepticism is always a good and healthy thing. I alrady told what I’m looking for; persistence and consistence as the most important traits.
I have lived in the biggest alliances in Eve and I know very well that people can and will rat for long periods of time, without being bots. But if you notice, some of the most ratted systems does not appear on the list, mainly because people are not so consistent as bots.
Two examples of good candidates, and who also score very high on the list, are system with low ratting numbers:
Now, I’m not saying that those systems are inhabited by bots, the data are saying that ratting behavior is persistent and consistent.
It is purely my interpretation of that ratting behavior that leads to the systems being listed.
You are welcome to interpret the data in another way. I’m basing my interpretation on years of null experience, living there, ratting there and hunting bots there
