In reference to the OP, Atticus Fynch


"To Kill a Mockingbird" http://www.novelguide.com/tokillamockingbird/toptenquotes.html

3) When he gave us our air-rifles Atticus wouldn't teach us to shoot. Uncle Jack instructed us in the rudiments thereof; he said Atticus wasn't interested in guns. Atticus said to Jem, "I'd rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you'll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." That was the only time I ever hear Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. "You're father's right," she said. "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mocking bird." (98)

I know "ad hominem" is the current trendy word being used to make you sound smart, but you should at least use it in the right context instead of just throwing it about whenever you don't like someone.
Ad hominem refers to making your response against and/or about the individual rather than addressing a response to the individual's argument. You know; like saying "it was another ****ty post by a ****ty poster" without actually saying anything about the content of the post itself or the issue it raised. Another good example would be to suggest that someone used a particular phrase to be "trendy" or in an attempt to "look smart", thereby attacking the individual's (supposed) motives rather that what they actually said, especially so when the phrase in question is both correct and cogent.



Oh trust me, the conclusion that it was a ****ty post didn't come from the fact it was the OP who suggested it. It was just an added bonus that this was the second brain-dead idea that had came from the same person. If i were attacking the OP's idea only because it was the OP who suggested it, i would have said "HTFU and STFU OP your idea's are terrible"

Actually there is some boxes that cargo scanners can't see into. Never tried them out but I've seen them in 'contracts'. But instead of changing something as wide ranging as ECM, might be a simpler tactic to make a low slot mod(to balance cargo size vs. scan-ability) that makes your cargo harder to scan (ie each item has a 30% to 80% chance of not showing up to a cargo scanner) and a mid slot to make your fitting harder to see.

Use a radar jammer on an airport IRL.


Lulz will ensue. Right before an investigation and possible civillian death.

How is this relevant?

It is not.

Its a game not RL. Nonetheless I find the following comparison quite appropriate:

You can't just drop buckets of paint one someones car rendering their windows viewless even though the car may be parked in front of your home and someone inside the car might be looking at your home to determine if there is something worth stealing.

The only 'imbalance' that exists, is that cargo scanners and ship scanners do not generate aggression. Maybe we can get that changed. Fifteen minutes of aggression for the pilot that you just scanned anyone? (Not their corp...just the pilot.) That way you can jam the heck out of the guy trying to scan you.

Sound reasonable?

Hm..I might have to suggest this in the ideas section.

You can, but the police might have something to say about it.Cool

Note: I read that anti-LOL thread and now I want to put it at the end of every sentence. Does anyone know if this desire is permanent?

I'm new to EVE and have been enjoying the missioning side of things, for now, so there's probably lots I'm missing from the balance point of view.

That said - the aggressions thing seems like a good idea, not sure of the knock on effects about balance :)

How about introducing a mechanism for protection or counter? seems to be the case for other things throughout EVE....like a kind of 'warp core stabilizer' for scanners?
Then the 'scannee' has the choice to what level to protect themselves and the 'scanner' has the choice on how many gank slots to give up?

I'll get my asbestos pants in preparation for the impending n00b flaming :)

oh lawd. If they made ECM non-aggression it would be hilarious. I would scan down people in missions just to permajam them.

Using any module which can be used to negatively effect the functionality of my ship in any way, shape or form is an offensive act.

ECM prevents my targeting systems from working so they fall under the above criteria, they aren't "the same as guns" they're considered the same as warp disruptors or webbers and I think it's perfectly reasonable that they be considered offensive.
