Well, I might have been quite cutting and outspoken all at the same time Cool

As a general rule, I do not post on my main. I don't need crazy following me into the game. If I was required to post on my main, I'd stop posting.

Because idgaf and if a person posts decently and cause use reason, logic, and evidence in their arguments then who they post with shouldn't matter.

The downside is that by using an alt small-minded people can more easily dismiss your arguments. But honestly, if I posted with my main they'd still dismiss my arguments because *Goons*.

Don't you feel that posting with your non-goon alt is somehow avoiding "social consequences" of your involvement with an organization that isn't very popular ingame?

Hey, look at this person with an over-inflated ego. Our most hated person is and always will be SirMolle. You're more like a little yappy dog that won't shut up while we're watching Spongebob.

Also, we've been annoyed with you since you started chestbeating and being dumb during the Great War.

Haha, why would I? The people who hate us already wardec us constantly. And this character isn't wardec immune or anything. I regularly travel around with her, and I have yet to be wardeced at all.

The problem of people dismissing alts comes when people use their npc-alts to post crazy nonsense simply in an effort to stir up **** without facing consequence. That ruins it for people who just prefer to post with alts because they like that alt.

Hey, look at this person with an over-inflated ego.


protip deflating an eve-player's ego is not best achieved by having 9000 energetic posters frothing incoherently at every post that person makes for a five year period. I know it sounds crass - but the fact goons collectively don't like me convinces me that I'm doing something right Big smile

If anything, what he's doing by posting (and making public the fact he is a goon) is the opposite of "avoiding social consequences".

Posting with an alt would mean no consequences in game. You can say whatever you want, to whomever you want, with no worries.

We go after almost anyone who posts badly. All this means is that you were one of the first. You really aren't all that special except for the La Maison stuff and how you sperg constantly about any conspiracy you can think of.

And the irony being your directors made up the "La Maison stuff" / allegations of RL prostitution / child pornography etc simply to try to smear an internet spaceship election campaign and try to lose an eve player their RL job. You guys went as far as creating fake websites, erotic fan fiction and a rl letter writing campaign - you were pretty damned serious about it.

Hey Jade, maybe you should start alt-posting since people hate you so much.

To be honest, being well hated or well loved on the forums due to your posting is an "Op success" in my books. If only I could get thousands of idiots to hate me...

By the way, Goonswarm sucks and they are the worst kind of subhuman slime ever. *crosses fingers*

And yet again you manage to take even the littlest hint to make sure everyone associate you with all those things.

It's almost as if you want to be associated with those things.

Well, I don't really believe in alt-posting. I think its a bit weak all in all. I think its pretty much one of the worst things about Eve Online forums and has been since day one. Its generally abused by people wanting to sling murky accusations without risk from the sidelines.

The key to getting "goonswarm" to hate you Petrus is to take their leader apart in online discussions. When the Mittani loses his head on the forums he starts calling posting CTA's to cover his blushes. Shooting humorous one-liners at the rank and file generally fails on the grounds they don't really understand humor unless it has a pony or lolcat attached in asciii code to let them know its meant to be funny.
