OK I didn’t choose any of you basement dwelling trolls to raise, but I will try and help some of you use your limited thought process to maybe comprehend a simple concept. I will try and keep it as simple as possible.

To call someone a coward for alt posting has to be one of the most moronic and juvenile attempt at trolling there ever was or ever will be. My 17 year old son can do better. Hell my 8 year old daughter even.

The internet itself is a curtain we ALL hide behind to say or be who ever or what ever we want. We all hide behind this curtain so we are all cowards using your moronic logic.

Lets imagine for a moment I have a main pilot that has several million skill points. What if I wanted to use this pilot to infiltrate the Goofwaffle federation. If I came to these forums and posted how I really felt about the Goofwaffles do you think I would make it in? Instead I keep this pilot low key and move him in and up the ranks of some lower corps till I got my chance.

I wouldn’t want to have to train another pilot for months just so I could fly a decent pvp ship all because I shot my mouth off on these forums. So alt posting is not only about not having to answer for your comments, because in reality no one has to answer for what they post here. You could just create a new pilot but why waste your time and resources?

I would hope that many of you would be able to comprehend or grasp this simple concept yet because of the stance you have taken you are either going to be immature, or would feel the need to hang onto your internet bravado to admit you might or could be wrong.

As far as corporations go I would respect any corp. that had the honor and or dignity and self respect to request its members not post on these forums because its mostly filled with basement dwelling trolls and little good will come from it. When you post here you not only rep yourself but your corp. and not all corps want to be represented by a forum troll warrior.

I feel certain the basic logic will elude most of the forum trolls and you will resort to what you do best, so please do not let me keep you from it.

Have you considered being respectful and polite towards others, instead of acting like a gigantic douchebag? That way people would be less willing to pay huge sums of money to get your sorry ass driven out of the game. If you get a bounty because of your in-game actions, then I'd consider it just a consequense of your actions and a part of normal gameplay.

As we all know, it has never, ever been the case in EVE that someone did something just for the lols or grief, or tears or sheer boredom. NEVER. No one anywhere will ever abuse this system.

Can't wait to put fat bounties on the narrow minded derps who live on theses forums and do nothing but argue like a radio with everyone in every thread like Pipa Porto, Baltec1 and various goonswarm trash.


lol...poor Goonswarm. Whatever will they do?


not all of goonswarm of course. Just the derps like yourself who will respond aggressively after failing at reading comprehension and get overly excited about girls on the internet.


Derps like myself? Who said anything about me being in Goonswarm? In fact if you have been around these forums for any length of time and have been paying attention, you would know that I am probably one of the last people you will ever find in Goonswarm and probably one of the most vocal against them. You definately missed the mark on the reading comprehension comment as well.

Nice derp on your part though.

I foresee bounties being the source of much fun in the future. Big smile

I would encourage the devs not to let up on the dev blogs. I know they are a lot of work and time taken away from actual work towards improving the game but those dev blogs are really important to many of us. Often they are the only reason I visit these forums. It's nice to know what is going on.

I read something recently about the devs stating there would be no more blogs until the expansion is done. This scares me.

If your "main" is busy infiltrating a corp and wants to keep a low profile perhaps you should consider either not posting for awhile, or do what everyone else does and use an alt to infiltrate with.

Either that or resign yourself to the fact that NPC alt posters are considered nothing but trolls and summarily ignored by the majority of the EVE community... which makes posting on the forums rather pointless anyway.


Or I could just do as I posted and not have to waste time by training a alt, but use that alt to do or say what I want. Whos to say I am not in Goofwaffle already?? Having the abilty to see things from multiple points of views is a rare gift not bestowed to trolls I guess.

Nobody said you are in goonswarm, just that you are obviously derpish to respond like you did after failing at reading comprehension.

You're not in Goonswarm. Goonswarm is full of loveable badposters. You're just a badposter.

Why does it matter where an argument comes from? Unless someone is attempting to make an argument based on some claim of authority (e.g. an NPC alt claiming they are an elite PvPer), there should be no difference between an argument made by a main and the same argument made by an NPC alt.

Either the argument is flawed, or it is not - who makes the argument is irrelevant as far as I am concerned (unless there is some claim of authority, as mentioned above).
