Some kids having a protest, brought couple hundred shuttles to some gate at Jita I hear. GMs are cleaning the area. (I didn't dare to go there, people yelling to avoid the spot at any cost.)
WTF? I have had no problem with the game ever, I'm glad with everything. I don't want any lamer to hinder my gameplay. I couldn't care less what the reasons for their "protest" is but that's outright bannable offence. I want to use that route. Always when I need.
Trying to induce lag and crash a node on purpose
has simply no excuse. Ban them. Instantly, ruthlessly, for good.
There are ways to use if you have got a gripe. Talk about it on the forums. Petition. Whine on your own forums. If you've got a point it will be solved already with that. If not, too bad. But leave the innocents out of the issue. That's exactly similar like how terrorists blow up innocent people because of their delusions
about some god existing and crap like that.
To the strickest meaning that conduct is even illegal by the law, is at least where I live. Interfering on purpose with information systems. It's big fine, sometimes even jail time.
