Maybe because someone payed 10 times the actual ransom and still got killed and podded. Coming up with "he didn't pay me the exact amount" as an excuse to break the agreement is really lame and shows no honor.

So moral of the story is if you interact with James315, dont believe a word he says....

That is not how I see it. James315 did not get paid what he asked for and was put in a position that would compromise his principles. It is not his fault the miner couldn't count properly.

Ummm...*giggles*...don't know how to break this to you, but....I think you should never trust your instincts or your intuition. If you do when you really need it most, you'll be winning a Darwin award.

Since he meant to give you the 90, but you blew him up anyway due to this misunderstanding, I would refund the 90 Pirate

The rest is finders keepers.

Also 90 is too low, you are undercutting the market, this is probably why he gave you 900, he thought you typoed a zero.

All I can say is I could never be as massive of a **** just dangling wide and sloshing around in a pool of paragraphs trying to justify my trying to be a **** was instead simply as a moral, principle driven player.
But just excepting being a bad guy would be too easy for those with a central nervous system to accept. You really have to crank that ego up to 11. You are doing gods work son, as he too was a massive ****.

Having read part of your forum posts I must confess that I am seriously impressed by your writing skills.

Just curious though, have you lived in a small hut without electricty and water in Montana? And do they really allow internet access in prison?

This OP is a PERFECT example of why this game is a joke.

Get something else to do with your time. Quit this game without waiting one more minute.

FINAL = You are playing with real people folks, so think outside your little Sandbox PVP crap and try to make the game more enjoyable for the players you interact with. If you find joy in pissing people off as this OP did, you have a mental disorder and need professional help.

Peace..... and I love every one of you with all of my heart...truly!!!

Eve being what it is, you can do whatever you want. However, you stating how highly you value honor and then refusing to help the guy out when he overpaid a ransom is quite funny.

Reminds me of religious people. Act all high and mighty but when it comes down to it, shows that it is not the case

Get a grip, you sound like a pansy.

WoW holds your hand until end game, and gives you a cookie whether you win or lose. EVE not only takes your cookie, but laughs at you for bringing one in the first place...

Before I announce my verdict, I would like to address the concerns of some cynical players who believe that I never intended to reimburse the miner, and that this is some kind of "show trial." Let me be clear. I value my honour above all else. I am among those who believe that one's actions in EVE reflect upon one's real-life character, and aside from stealing 30 billion in the Currin Trading scam I have always sought to maintain the highest level of integrity and fairness throughout my EVE career. When my reputation is on the line, and when people question my commitment to the code of Bushido, I take it as seriously as a heart attack.

Words are air, it's actions that speak.

You have no honour.

Nice take though. I would have kept it.

I've always felt envy towards people like the op. Unlike him, I wouldn't be able to treat like a fool someone whom I beated in a game and brag about my cynicism in a forum. My in-game business would go much better.

The first sentence I quoted above is not true-you have no honor whatsoever. None.

The second sentence I quoted above is the only honest thing you have said or done at all in this situation. Even CCP reimburses for mistakes in adding an extra 0 in a market order causing overpayment of market order charges. It is very easy to do, especially in a high stress situation.

Your justification is ridiculous and obscene. Just admit you are a scumbag and move on. This is Eve after all, we expect scum in the game. You are just part of Eve and what makes this game unique. But your justification to hold on to your so-called "honor" is laughable.

Unless of course you already recognize you have no honor and your justification is a joke and just part of your overall scumbaggery, then it fits you.
