In a civilized society, are laws and rules made for citizens or criminals?



The laws and rules are there to maintain the powers that be.

Removal of the local channel would be a stupid idea, but delaying it by say 2-5 minutes would be epic.



Nope, then the advantage goes to the hunter. You could enter a system, see everyone who has been there for 5+ minutes and go to work, then the people who were there would be none the wiser.

I want WH local in null/low

..interesting observation Herr Fraulein...what is also ironic, is that just last night I watched the Star Trek Next Generation episode where Worf's spinal column was replaced by a doctor who also practiced unethical renegade witchdoctory. These are strange times at hand indeed.

I'll be the first to admit... I'm unethical, Amoral, and Untrustworthy.
That's EvE, gameplay as intended. There are many ways that you can easily defend against me in your system. Shedding tears in the Forums is not one of them.

your Tears are all the pay I'm looking for, Thank you.

wait someone actually watched star trek voyager, my theory was unless there was a kitchen on the bridge there was no reason a woman should be captain. but more to your point......THIS IS FING EVE, if you cant defend your space and deal with an afk cloaker then go back to high sec, just cause it has your name on dotlan doesnt mean its yours unless you can defend it.

Everything in eve costs what people will pay for it, no ones going to hold your hand, grow a pair and fleet up

epic troll thread
0/10 etc

seriously... how is afk cloaking unethical ? u rant about "ethics" and still have no idea what it actually means. so u want ur precious 0.0 carebearspace MORE safe than it already is (0.0 is actually the safest place in new eden, surrounded by gigantic blobs of blue)
thats surely the only reason u donate such a large amount of tears to the forums. damn 0.0 carebears, unable to adapt, and think on their own. soon u want cloaking removed from the game, cynos,and whs dont spawn in conquered 0.0 space, and when we are at it, lets change jumpgates so only blues can enter ur system. yes that will make u totally safe from any harm, so rainbows start shining from ur ass und u can live in peace and harmony in ur 0.0 carebearparadise.

I like how you rate the troll 0/10, then proceed to bite by taking the post seriously.

You are not very good at this.

Now now, I think you're unfairly excluding the Klingons here. They also practice AFK cloaking.

Like I mentioned in my post about AFK cloakers, CCP doesn't think it's big enough of a problem to put man power enough into it to make sure people stop doing it.


You do realize you're being ignored for 2 reasons:

1) CCP dev's are working on the NEX store so that they can continue to make a great NEX store.
2) CCP leadership ignores what you say and only pays attention to what you do.


...so what are you going to do about it?

How on earth is AFK cloaking a problem? Rat in another system!

Also lol at the idea of a game mechanic - any game mechanic in any game - being "unethical"

What I see is a group of trembling pirates fighting together to avoid a nerf that would make them cry.
And your best weapon is the insult, denigration and a solution just for them profitable.
Should I spend my life in system to spam the SCAN button looking for pirates? Scouts should spend their life to see every single activation gate. BORINGLAND. The 0.0 will be empty, nothing more to destroy. You will be alone in your nothing. Everyone in empire disabling accounts. This is your best solution? You really are pirates.

teh Doctor (who never gets an actual name)


Actually he had many names.

Starfleet did not assign a name and initially the Doctor maintained that he did not want one. Later, he adopted such names as 'Schmullus' (by a Vidiian patient), 'Schweitzer' (after Albert Schweitzer), 'Van Gogh', 'Kenneth', 'Jones', and several others. The captioned dialog of early episodes, and early promotional material for the series' premiere, referred to him as 'Dr. Zimmerman', after his creator, Lewis Zimmerman. In the series finale, a future is shown where he has chosen the name "Joe."

EVE is a game. A game. Every time you use the word "ethical" in this forum you deserve to have someone new jump into your local and cloak up.

Go to this thread and read. Weep. Learn to EVE.

Because in space hundreds of light years across, it's logical to know every single person that is in it the second they are in it. Personally AFK cloaking makes space what it truly is. LARGE. UNKNOWN.

Getting rid of local could possibly be the best thing CCP could ever do for this game.

Guys, ethics have nothing to do with morality and right or wrong, they have to do with laws put in place by closed societies in order to dictate what is and is not legal in and of itself.

CCP does this every day, what do you think the EULA is? It is a set of ethical laws that we must all follow, whatever you do under the EULA that does not break the EULA, is ethical by definition.

That is how ethics work. Morality is an entirely different beast and I am am always shocked when so many people grossly misunderstand the very clear difference.

Very few things are immoral, many things are unethical.

Murder is immoral.
But the drinking age, is an ethical law, which varies from country to country.


Drinking a beer at the age of 19 when the legal limit is 21 is not immoral, it is unethical, it only becomes immoral when you run someone over in your car while intoxicated.

In the same way that CCP declares it unethical for a player to run a botting program, they could just as well declare it unethical to cloak up in a system for the sole purpose of harassing players twelve hours a day.

The only difference here is that we all know that will never happen, if anything, they will simply change the mechanic so it is not nearly as possible as it was before.

The AFK cloaker problem has more to do with peoples greed than threat of a single cloaked ship. People want to be able to make isk solo in 0.0 so they don't have to share the profits with anyone else and an AFK cloaker in system makes this hard to do. If you actually worked as a team with other players the threat goes away and you can continue making isk, just at a slightly slower rate.

Frau, did you put your brain in backwards or something before posting that? As you've no doubt already been told, he's not a doctor. He's an Emergency Medical Hologram. If you can't get your facts straight, how are we supposed to take you seriously? Geez... kids these days.
