20 comments is a long time, I’m sure he has reflected upon those comments and is now ashamed of his past. There is no need to dredge up ancient history.
Also, with regard to the myth that CODE. goes around ganking permit holders. Just think about it for a moment. Why would we go to all the trouble of selling you a permit, promoting the permit for seven years, making a big deal about the permit, and then gank you just for lulz? We want our citizens to be happy and productive, paying their taxes and wearing their permit with pride. We reserve the best mining spots for our VIPs. Just now, I had a choice between two retrievers, one with a permit and one without. One who saluted me when I entered local, and one which did not. I think you know which retriever exploded, and which one posted a big smiley face in local.
Veterans who know better should stop lying to new players, telling them that the permits aren’t real. EVE has permits and taxes. New players should know this. You can’t go mine in the Delve unless you pay rent. High security space is no different, except with higher security. Those asteroid belts are claimed, and the laws are enforced vigorously. I think some people just want the noobs to get ganked, so they lie and pretend that anyone can go anywhere they like without paying any tolls. “Yah buddy, you can just roll up on that interstate and blaze it, the police won’t actually give you a ticket! When you hit that border, just barrel on through, ain’t nobody need no visa!”
Even if you hate James with all your evil heart, you should acknowledge to noobs that EVE is a feudal environment, with medieval overlords, arcane customs, and Byzantine mysteries. It is true that there are those who believe high-sec to be an anarcho-syndicalist hippy commune, and those who believe staunchly in the Old Order. However, only an ignorant fool would ignore the fact that the New Order is very serious about its own claim to the region. If CODE. is engaged in some kind of elite roleplay, you might want to roleplay a little yourself, and try kneeling in submission before the Supreme Lord Protector and High King of the Realm, James 315, the First of His Name, Bishop of Halaima, the Conqueror of Kamio and Landlord of the Delve, CEO of the Caldari Navy, Emperor of Amarr and Ammatar, President of Minmatar, Prime Minister of Gallente, Khanid of Khanids, the Bob of Bob, Baron of Hek, Chancellor of the Lawton School of Space Law, and Chief Financial Officer of Currin Trading.
Praise be unto Him!
