From now on please refer to people who hunt ratters, missioners, industrialists, and miners as "PVP enthusiasts".

We all have hopes and dreams of a New Eden we all wish to see realised. So lets join together and erase the hate.

DISCLAIMER: Tom Gerard is not a pirate all kills including podkills were strictly self-defense

Yar - har - fiddle-dee-dee, being a pirate is all right to be!
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free, you are a pirate!

We got us a map (a map!) to lead us to a hidden box,
Thats all locked up with locks (with locks!) and buried deep away.
We'll dig up the box (the box!), we know it's full of precious booty
Burst open the locks, and then we'll say 'HOORAY!'



My name is Ammutseba Gangulur, and I am a pirate.

A pirate is someone who lives off of PvP - IE it is how they fund their ships.

A "PvP enthusiast" is someone PvPs for fun and lulz. A pirate will attempt to ransom their target (unless they think they can got more ISK from the loot). A "PvP enthusiast" cares more about the kill mail than the loot.

Nothing compulsory about it.

I would define a ransom as: "An invitation to go shopping"

And who doesn't enjoy shopping, especially if you are a girlie and you are buying shoes.

Are we seeing the beginnings of a political correctness movement by the EVE playerbase?

I hope not, I can barely tolerate it in real life where everybody thinks they have a god given right to not be offended, I don't want to have to do it in EVE too.

I do not think of myself as a pirate.

It is my job to ensure that losec provides a positive and exciting experience for the visitors. My pay for providing this service? Why, tips, of course, and gifts, left for me by grateful losec-goers.

Yeah all they are doing is Stealing From, Murdering, Ransoming, Capturing and Destroying Ships to make a Profit.

Unlike Pirates who... Bury Treasure?

There aren't any pirates in EVE. There are just those pilots who are morally flexible and those who aren't.YARRRR!!

I agree totally with the OP. Pirate is indeed a offensive slur. That's why I personally prefer the term 'PieWrat', with is not only a more degrading offensive slur but also coveys proper contempt for the Phat Loot these particular Rats drop.
