I don't think it's really gone up that much, at least as a percentage of the player population. There's just been an inrush of newbs lately, coupled with the ore thieves become more obnoxious and posting every time they steal 100 Veld from somebody.

Everytime someone whines about ore thieves (not saying you are btw it was a good observation) some other player thinks "Hey that ain't a half bad idea". All publicity is good publicity.

As much as i hate having my ore stolen, i can't really blame 'em for playing the game within the boundries, just following another carreer is my idea of it.
Of course i always try to get my ore back, shame i don't have enough isk so i can shoot his indy, lmao.

Wish they would steal some of my ore in 0.0 Twisted Evil

That requires skill, I have doubts that your common ore thief could locate OR steal a ship in 0.0 space.

Just my $0.02. ;)

Luckily Shiva -when it finally comes out- will fix this.

A good read to all who hate ore thieves and a warning to ore thieves:

The contraband system wont stop ore thiefs. From what I know, CCP Doesnt care for Jetcan Miners like me, and doesnt care that ore thiefs make life a bit tricky. They had an official statement about Jetcan Miners and Ore Thiefs, but I dont know where it is atm.

I know about that, that was in a CSM, but that CSM was before the contraband pages.
Read that article i posted wello, it says quite clear that if you take from a can that isn't yours, you get flagged, and secure cans are excluded, it does not say jet cans are excluded. Also, show info on a jet can shows an owner, so unless you have some real convincing proof i am staying with my point, ore thiefs will be in a world of hurt after shiva.

Pffft, I already know how to 'exploit' this so the miner will be destroyed and their ore will be lost.

1.0 sec space, you cant use secure cans...you cant shoot back...people can steal your ore...i'd say that is broken, 1.0 should be safe, it has naff ore. I agree Ore theives are part of the game but they should have to steal in 0.5 and below, so they actually have a little bit of a challenge, instead of a method of making ISK with 0 risk =/

Ore theives that steal from the newbies in 1.0 are just scum...any theif that steals from somebody in 0.4 space i congratulate you =)

Ore thieves in 0.0 are called pirates, which are even worse scum. They not only take your or, but they destroy your ship and kill you,too.

Oh yeah,I'm thinking about opening a pirating subdivision,too.
