ToS rule 16:
You may not do anything that interferes with the ability of other EVE Online subscribers to enjoy the game or web site in accordance with its rules.
Good thing, then, that cloaking does not interfere with that ability at all.
Brings us to ToS rule 1:
You may not abuse, harass or threaten another player or authorized representative of CCP, including customer service personnel and volunteers.
…nor does in involve any of those things.
Basicly if someone brings an alt into a system in a cloaked ship this is meant to cause distress on the ones on that system.
…which is not enough to make the action against the rule — in fact, much of what constitutes the core
of the game is about causing distress in other players.
By logging in daily and then cloak up at some safespot and go afk can be called harrassement because the afk cloaker knows exactly what his action will bring forward.
No, it cannot, for the simple reason that he doesn't do anything. The effect is entirely and deliberately chosen
by the self-imposed victim. The cloaker has zero control over the situation. If you keep throwing yourself in front of my car, it is not me who is mounting a campaign aimed at your eradication.
It's also an exploit because the one afk cloaking an alt in a system does it for benefits
…which has nothing to do with whether it is an exploit or not.
Thus someone is getting a benefit by exploiting a flaw in the gamedesign and can be brought forward as an exploit.
Where is the exploit? What is not working as intended?
