Right. Simple as this. Sort out the damn mining exploits NOW!

Miners being fired on in 0.8 space and no CONCORD anywhere. People blowing up cargo pods filled with ore and even blowing up ships and no kill rights, no CONCORD! What the ****!

I've paid 30 to reactivate my account and all I have is a load of *******s griefing and a client that makes my ****ing computer crash. Sort out this now or I expect a refund I have been back 15 ****ing minutes.

Patch the client, refund the lost ships and remove the bug or give me back my money. Preferably the former.

Ok.... perhaps the above post it a little excessive with the anger but I've just spent 30 and the game doesn't work. This needs fixing otherwise there's no such thing as high sec mining any more.

Also the damn client crashed, which is excessively irritating.

It's part of the game mechanics, people find some way to exploit the system.
CCP doesn't have time to fix EVERYONE's problems and reports, but they're trying.
Give it some time, it's just like real life, theres problems, just deal with it or don't play.
Sorry if I sound brash, but that's just the way it is.

What it's/its means what is a COVENTION, not a RULE. Regardless, such a superficial matter is irrelevant.

Oh, wait...

Isn't SMASH at war with someone curently?
This would be the reason why concord doesn't care about you...

If you want to mine, find a peaceful empire corporation.

What it's/its means what is a CONVENTION, not a RULE. Regardless, such a superficial matter is irrelevant.


1) It is a rule of grammar. "It's" is a contraction of "It is". "It's" is most commonly misused in a posessive form which is incorrect (as in belongong to it).

2) It appears to me to have been correctly used in the original post.

3) Correcting grammar and/or spelling in internet posts or chat which have been quickly typed is generally considered extreme bad manners. Recruitment ads and so on may be expected to be correct but correcting casual posts like this is the equivalent of going up to people at a party and haranguing them about their accent. If you don't understand something, ask, but otherwise stfu.

:P "its/it's" is an ASSUMED rule, if you read up on the history of punctuation, you will see that it has just happened in the way you described. It really doesn't matter anyway, it should be clear in the majority of circumstances from the context.

All of English is fluid and ever-changing or it wouldn't be the language it is. Nevertheless the use of the apostrophe is well documented in all of the standard references on punctuation in correct modern English. Inasmuch as anything can be said to be a rule of English, this is a rule. If you used it the incorrect way in an English exam, for instance, you would lose marks for it.

Coming back to my point, however...

The internet is not an English exam. For the most part it is conversation which happens to have been written down. Correcting it is trolling at best and outright rudeness otherwise.
