Why do we kill people who kill people to show them that killing people is wrong?

Because they kill people who don't kill people, which is neither right nor wrong, for both possible subjects.

Surly adding to the discussion without adding to the discussion to show that adding to this discussion would be wrong is like killing someone who kills someone to prove that killing someone is wrong Rolling Eyes

Because attacking KOS players with advantageous numbers and factors doesn't roll off the tongue as well.

Would you consider all anti-pirates as blobbing cowards? I know a few that are competent and work the aggression mechanics into their tactics so they can engage greater numbers rather than simply relying on a numbers game.

Granted there are many incompetent people that have to blob but that goes for all walks of eve life.

Same reason we imprison people for unlawful confinement or execute people for murder.

One part deterrence, two parts retribution. Although it's hard to deter people in EVE since anything lost can always be regained. So that leaves retribution. Although the anti-pirates are usually not the ones who have been wronged. That said, police officers, prison guards and executioners haven't necessarily been wronged either.

So in a way, anti-pirate groups are doing all us carebears a great service! Also pirates should feel free to fight amongst themselves whenever possible. That works just as well. Very Happy

There are no jails or any sort of punishment strong enough to act as a deterrent (like reprocessing of criminal's isk and ships for example). Pod pilots are immortal so really...Who's actually being killed? Best you can do is delay the inevitable, again and again.

Because some people simply cannot grasp the concept of the golden rule. So you have to show them first hand.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

-- TBH Pirates want you to do it, the reason pirates pirate in eve is to generate situations where people come for revenge or people come after them for being pirates.

But are you suggesting you want to be blown up as well? If you're following the golden rule you don't project justice, rather you project empathy and want to treat people how you want to be treated.


Maybe you're more of an eye for an eye sort...YARRRR!!

Pirates shoot at eachother all the time. Only times they work together is when presented with a big target...like a carrier or somesuch.

Some people aren't really interested in firing upon the innocent people who are minding their own business and would rather shoot down people who clearly are not innocent.

The result is also more of a fight rather than a suprise one-sided gank.

(By "innocent" I mean they are not killing any other players unless it is self defense)
