Yeah tbh most people who gank hulks just do so for ****s and giggles--nerfing that would be hard. Hauler ganking on the other hand one runs the risk of the loot popping or another player swiping it before your hauler arrives (something which has happened to me multiple times). So while I agree that nerfing insurance may be a good idea, it seems that suicide ganking is not on the whole terribly unbalanced.

One last question: IIRC you said some very harsh things about pirates in the wake of Larkonisgate. Do you stand by those?

I am really glad you brought this up. I was not critical of pirates. I was critical of Lark who was just a really bad pirate in the context of the scandal. A really good pirate would not have been so obvious and would have made a fortune.

What I thought was the biggest saddness in the Lark scandal is he represtned a very important segment of Eve and in a moment of drunken weakness he managed to have a pro pirate CSM get replaced by me, a pretty much care bear-ish CSM. He did his support base a big diservice.

I think Lark is an interesting person and had some great ideas for Eve. I understand stupid drunken decision making and I can tell you if there was ever a place to be drunk and make bad choices it is Iceland! I was sad what he did was so amaturish and resulted in him not being able to continue to drive his good ideas forward. I expect more from a good pirate.

You should also realize the general grumpiness I exhibited when I replaced Lark was as much at CCP as Lark. I found out almost a week later third hand as CCP didn't bother to let me know I was being upgraded to part of the official CSM. I also found less than a warm welcome in the CSM I was thrust into and I was also expected to be effective after the one time in the CSM term when you really could make a difference, the face to face Iceland meeting.

So don't confuse my comments when I was asked to replace Lark as anti-pirate. I just wanted Lark, as maybe the first "real" pirate in the CSM to have been better at it. I expect if Lark was honest he would agree. In a perfect world I would have prefered he had either been way more clever about his use of inside information which would have been epic Eve pirate or that he would have had a couple less of the horrible Icelandic liquor shots and had not tried to make a small profit, because honestly he was doing a great job supporting the player base that voted him in. I was not able to do much for the folks I represent in the remainder of his term and certainly did nothing for his player base.

So in summary, I am not anti-pirate or anti-lark, I am anti excess Icelandic Brennivin abuse in the CSM. Lark is an epic Eve pirate that deserved to do better by Eve and the CSM and I blame Brennivin! :-)

I am sure my support for pirates might confuse some folks that see me as a care bear. Please realize I love the risk/reward part of Eve and all care bears should embrace that. In Eve danger should = huge isk! That is what I want for every care bear!

I hope that make sense,

A CSM candidate that is a care bear that also likes pirates because they will create the risk that makes me rich!

hay Issler glad to see that you are running again. You represent a fairly large population of people in Eve that dont say much for them selves and need a voice in what ever government that is active. I have been through your corp a few times and have met you in RL and know that you are well centered and have a good idea of how you feel things should be. Im glad that you are not agianst PvP, it is what Eve is all about and for some its they only way they feel powerful (you know how you are) but its not the only thing to do in the verse. And thats why I am yet agian voting for you. Would do so with all my sisters but cant afford to bring them all out of stasis at this time.

good luck to you and hope you make it agian this term.

I've got to say, after reading what you wrote about Larkonis in the immediate aftermath of the Great Scandal, the last thing I'd have expected is for you to say that you thought he should have done a better job with the heist! Can't say I agree with that POV, but I think at this point it's worth saying that, contrary to the editorial I wrote at the time, if I were a carebear I would definitely have to consider voting for Issler. Obviously as I'm a PVPer she's not going to best represent my interests, so I'm not going to cast my vote for her (sorry!) but I honestly can't say that I'd mind having her on the Council. Lord knows everyone is entitled to get grumpy now and then, and I can't say Issler didn't have good reason. I'll be posting a note on my original editorial from a few months ago to that effect.

I think Issler brings a valuable perspective to the CSM; I hope we get to work together.

So I am somewhat puzzled that a very random other candidate seems to have become in many folks eyes the only alternative carebears have to vote for. I want folks to realize there are several other "carebear" oriented folks that would serve you much better should you offer them your support.

You especially should realize that the effectiveness of whoever wins is directly related to how well they can work with the other CSM. The high profile candidate who shall not be named that seems to somehow be considered the primary "carebear" candidate most definitely will not play well with others should they tragically be elected to the next CSM.

Issler Dainze
The carebear no one talks about who plays well with others and is also running for the CSM along with several other good carebear candidates and one not so good one

I want to thank the 800 plus pilots of Eve that voted for me! I'm sorry I will not be able to represent the care bears and casual players of Eve but at least folks that play Puzzle Pirates will be well represnted in the new CSM! Shocked

It was a great election and in the end I think this new CSM (mostly) will bring great things to Eve over the next year.

Again thanks to everyone that participated in the CSM process and especially the folks that offered me their direct support in this election!

Issler Dainze
Not your next CSM representative and not a player of Puzzle Pirates

Nice double post, there, Issler.

Too bad your voice will not be heard on this CSM, but I don't consider my vote wasted. Maybe if your campaign managed to get a little more into the spotlight, but I guess the PvE/non-alliance/trader/industrialist/carebear spot there was well occupied by Someone Else (no poison there, that was mostly due to her detractors' work, and she does have some serious merit, too, beyond her unfortunate susceptibility to trolls and propensity for unpopular comments). Ah, well, I hope you will not give up EVE politics now - there are a lot of other ways to influence opinion and policy outside the CSM and that's where I'd like to see you diligently increase your infamity until the next election. :)

Thanks for the very kind words! I defintely am not going anywhere so next election is a definite possibiity. I'll look for ways to raise my visibility in a good way and maybe down the road I'll have that "critical mass" to have the opportunity to represent a very important segement of the pilots of Eve.

Once again, huge thanks to everyone that took the time to vote, and even more special jumping up and down and cheering thanks to the folks that voted for me this election!
