Is it a flaw in the game that my Aggression Countdown Timer starts at 14 minutes when a rat fires at me and I don't fire?

If I am not committing "Aggression" and just sitting there, why should a rat be able to activate my timer?

Here's a major problem that causes; Many people do not know that when you are ratting in an attempt to raise your
security level, it doesn't matter if you destroy a single rat or 7.5 million of the things as you only get a security
raise every 15 minutes and it is based on the single largest rat you destroyed. It used to be that you could override
the 15 minute interval by docking or gate jumping. It appears as if that is no longer possible as of about 39 days

So, when I'm just sitting there in space, off chatting (on here) or whatever, waiting for my timer to run down, and
a rat comes in and fires at me, it starts the timer all over again so there's no way to tell how long you really do
have to wait before there's any reason to blow up another rat.

In fact that just happened right now, as I was writing this.

Is it supposed to be like that? Certainly not as that makes no sense... I have turned in a Petition and am awaiting
an answer but it certainly is "Aggravating".

It's not the same as the real pvp timer. It just happens when you PVE all the time. It's been broken forever.
If you're only PVEing , nothing will happen. It's just a 'cosmetic' blemish...

The method of stacking sec gains still works just fine.. you kill the biggest (non mission) rat you can find then change systems and do it again.. you gain 1 hit per solar system per 15 minutes. Just find a group of 3-4 systems you can through in a circle and grind away. As for the aggro timer.. yeah it's meaningless. Red global crim timers and the following yellow timers have meaning.. the ones from pve don't.

Also between the tutorials and the wiki.. pretty much all of the information is freely accessible to new players.. most just don't bother to look for it.

If you mouse over the aggression timer it will show you specifically which parties you are aggressed to.
Aggression timers from NPCs are largely unimportant except in a few specific cases, namely if you fly to a station owned by the NPC party you are aggressed to - you may find the sentry guns warmly welcoming you.
However, pirate NPC factions don't tend to have stations in high security space so you shouldn't worry about it.

As for standings gains, if you open your character sheet, go to standings, and find your standings with CONCORD (which is the same as security standing), you can rightclick > view transactions to see exactly when your last standings gain was.
