Nice one.

Just accept it, you lost. Game over ripper.

Or should I say, RIP

Er, to me or to YGR?

Could someone also fill me in on the YGR / MD animosity? I think I came to the scene significantly after whatever it was occurred.

Ah I see!

So what's up with the feud between you too?

He keeps posting as if you like goons more than him, though I have a feeling Ebank would stay far, far away from any Goon ventures.

Actually you should speak to some of your alliance members. We definetly have dealt with members of the goons in the past, just as we have likely dealt with 25% of the big alliances out there (by that i mean various deals with corps inside them, not the alliances themselves).

Like I said before whilst reputation is definetly a factor it isn't the only thing we use to determine that validity of a loan.

While I can not say for sure what has happened before my return, do a search on LRN as well as YGR, for that matter any character in the corp Ewigkeit and you may get an idea of why the anamosity exists.

Back to the topic -

1)Would I invest in a Goon IPO? NO!

2)Would I invest in a Haakkon IPO? Maybe - thus far the posts presented in MD have been honorable, not only to respecting and not wavering his allegiance but also respecting others may have a problem with the connection to the Goon Alliance.

3)Why do I distrust goons - the culture of self serving bastages that use and abuse those who are not of the culture. I dont tell you how to play, why do you tell me I can not mine in a hulk out of minmatar space with out you breathing down my neck?

4)Would I invest in any joe smoe that drops an IPO into MD? NO!

When I returned I took a week examining the stocks on the two exchange groups and ended up with about 3 stocks/bonds/ipo's I was interested. I can not speak for all but researching before investing is something I strongly suggest to anyone.

As has been said before, the ultimate item necessary is trust. I see you are willing to put the time in Haakkon, I wish you luck with that.

Lets just say as long as you post valid buisness plans on this forum and pull them off your social status is doomed to stay a few hundred thousand times stronger then YGR. =)

I've always been compassionate towards other people when it came to pointing flaws in their reasoning.
I mean how can someone be so indifferent to their suffering? I have actually helped more poor souls than any other member of this community.
Take Ricdic for example or Shadarle, they don't miss one chance to thank me from the bottom of their hearts.
This is what it really means to be a responsible member of this community.

My thoughts would be that if you want to fundraise off of goonfleet.com, go ahead and make the thread(s) and tend to them, tell the "Ahh! A goon! Scam!" people to **** off, and if you get no isk at all, whatever... Internal Goonfleet investment potential is big enough for most people if you network enough, and less effort than doing it here. Odds are you'll get at least a few bites from here, though, and those people can attest to your legitimacy later on.

Eeewww!!!

I can take a punch pretty well but please abstain yourself from using "<3" and ":P".
Considering your real gender (and not the avatar's), your posts that feature such emoticons make me noxious.
Your problem lies with Xq28. Search google for that. It's all I can do to help you.

I wasn't planning to comment on this thread but I've got to say a few words about that.

YouGotRipped is a bi-polar troller and scammer. He's been enough of a troll to get at least half a dozen posts removed by the mods, a ban and a locked thread. A moderator even called him a troll at one point. Sadly, he has yet to be perma-banned.

For a while he was trying to raise public funds but he could never get investment, even when he offered security. Thanks partially to his attitude and partially to his prior indirect admittance that his offers were scams. He also has a habit of claiming he can make some random number of billions between 2 and 10 every month and I don't think I've ever seen him post the same number twice. After he gave up on getting investment he started using a color-shifted version of my signature (including my name) which is a big part of the reason I go after the idiot.

For the last few weeks he's been trying to act like a regular old member of the forum except he keeps insulting Ricdic. He'll take shots at the guy for no reason. My guess is he's trying to associate himself with Ricdic in people's minds because he figures being the man's nemesis will get him more investors than just being a generic dumbass troll. Or maybe he just resents the fact that Ricdic is respected and he's not so he's trying to drag him through the mud like he was with me. Regardless, he should have been permanently banned from these forums a long time ago.

I find it funny you think 10.3b is some kind of big number. Really isn't much to be proud of tbh, and honestly we don't really care how much you have.

Then why post your opinion at all? The fact that matters is that I've made those money in less than a month of active trading and manufacturing. And I've been quite lazy.
Plus I've lost a lot of isk on typos.
And this char is just a front as you might have already noticed.

triple digits... What is the purpose of that?
Ask Shadarle what was the time cost for the rights to brag about the size of his wallet, and most importantly what does he do with his wealth.

The following however, makes more sense:

Originally by: Ambo

I have no interest in role playing. I invest because it allows me to play perpetually for free and covers the cost of losing cheap ships. In other words, I do nothing to make money now, I don't rat, mission, mine, trade or manufacture. I only PvP. As long as I don't lose too much in the way of ships I can keep doing this indefinatley thanks to my investments.



On the %age scams front, I've had 22 investments so far. 2 have been scams and were early in my Eve market career and both for smaller amounts (500 mil and 700 mil I think), the rest have all made money or are waiting on first divs. In total, taking the scams into account, I have made around 4 bil on the secondary market since sept 07. Certainly nothing to compare to trading for example, but not half bad for virtually zero effort.


edit: sp


The amount of isk is a means to an end not a purpose in itself.

To bring this a little back to the topic:

Haakkon i'm looking forward to see your IPO, if it suits me I might invest.
I have no personal feelings about Goons as of now as I didnt have any contact (any noticable contact anyways) with them.

Your way to answer patiently here, while keeping your calm over all the flaming is remarkable.
If your IPO looks good the fact you are in Goonswarm will not keep me from investing into it.

Good luck.

Edit: Correction in Haakkons name...again

A Goonie-run IPO. The phrase that comes to mind is, "A fool and his money are soon parted."

This is an alliance that prides itself on how well it scams people. Look, if you're really considering investing in this, just give me your isk instead. I wont give it back, nor will I pay any return on your investment in any way. But at least I'll spare you the public mocking you'll get for doing the same thing with a Goonie. Thus, you'll come out ahead.

I think that's a pretty fair deal. My wallet is waiting!

Berand

Edit: Finished reading the rest of the thread. This is some serious lols. I just hope when the Goonies actually unveil their investment plan, it involves charging a fee for transporting carriers via their jumpbridge network.

That isn't quite true. I accepted the collateral he offered in return for an investment of 500m, and he was kind enough to repay it 2 weeks later with 40m of interest even though he never started a publicly funded venture.

I wonder whether it would have been a public service to demand a ransom of a month's civil forum conduct before returning his BPOs, but then again I also wonder how he'd have done if he hadn't publicly attacked so many potential investors.

I would invest in a goon run venture. They are actually very trustworthy people and only tend to exploit idiots anyway - something I don't have a problem with. I had numerous dealings with them and always had a successful outcome.

Thread won.

EDIT: In all seriousness, I think my sentiments are expressed pretty well throughout this thread. When you join an alliance, you meld with their mindset, like it or not. I just don't think I'd be able to trust one faceless Goon when so many others (who from the outside look the same to me) have absolutely no qualms about openly scamming.

And yes, I'm a PVPer, and yes, I'm GBC. This isn't about not helping the enemy, not really. My alliance has had a very negative history against the likes of the Collective. Would I have any problem investing in an IPO from one of them that was determined unlikely to be a scam by MD folks? Not at all.
