Everyone is a potential murderer, you just haven't had the right motivation yet.

Looking to talk on VOIP with other EVE players? Are you new and need help with EVE (welfare) or looking for advice? Looking for adversarial debate with angry people?

This is almost the dumbest argument I've ever seen made on these forums. Unless my game playing habits were somehow germane to the job I was applying to then no I wouldn't give the interviewer a detailed list of my in-game activities.

When other posters ask if you're a 12 year old it's because of posts like the one you just made.


Of course you wouldn't volunteer this information, but if they asked you for your Facebook, Xbox live, and online gaming behavior would you feel comfortable giving it to them? They already ask for credit score and search for Facebook accounts as it is. What would they think if they saw "Just scammed someone in EVE online!" as one of your Facebook statuses? Would they understand that "its just a game"?

Maybe my thinking out of the box confuses everyone so they resort to ad homimen attacks when they can't comprehend the situation.

Crap, google search of napoleon complex epeen sends me back to an EVE forums thread. About make chars taller in character creator, and featuring a post by Mr. Epeen. Ugh Stuck in an EVE-O forums infinite loop.

Apparently, as yet there have been no scholarly studies of the relation between Napoleon Complex and the epeen syndrome. Is there an inverse relationship between physical height and magnitude of epeen? We may never know.

Too many academics have found the correlation to be self-evident, thus no studies.

I don't know what kind of jobs you're applying for but as an actual adult I've never been asked for any of that information. I also don't run to Facebook every time I scam a pubbie or blow up a miner... Roll

EVE is a game about spaceships and there's an enormous amount of work to do on the in-space gameplay before players (or developers) are ready to sacrifice it for a totally new type of gameplay - CCP Rise

Scholars disagree on whether the Napoleon Complex exists at all.

Any employer who asks for that sort of information is not worth working for, in fact I believe there was a case recently where it was deemed illegal for them to ask for that sort of information.

It's very easy to stop an employer finding or viewing your facebook account, don't friend work colleagues and lock it down using the tools facebook provide, which incidentally can also stop Google crawling your particular account. A google search for my real name brings up zero results, relating to me personally, despite having a facebook account that uses it.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Unless it's in politics and banking, in which case anything you can do in Eve is considered a minor misdemeanor or a qualification.

Nope. 34 years old. Worked 10 years in IT/Tech support and had 2 years in a supervisor position. Worked for and with a few fortune 500 companies.

If you just want to call anyone that has a unique opinion on the meaning of morality a 12 year old to make yourself feel better about rationalizing your own views then I guess go right ahead. There isn't much I can do for you to help you see the world in a different light. You might want to try some capitalization and punctuation though. I hear the young people don't like to use that on their tweets so its hard to tell you apart from them.

Well its not stealing your grandma's social security check immoral, but its about as immoral as taking money from another player playing poker in Las Vegas. If you can't see morality in such actions then I can't help you.

Just because the game says you can do such a thing, doesn't make it moral. The game itself doesn't have the rules of morality, that is still subjective to society and the person committing the action.

I'm not saying that you are a bad person who should be arrested... I'm saying you still have actions of morality can be judged by the rest of society however slight.

The issue with EVE is not that the rules say you must scam and gank, but you can gank and scam if you make the willing choice to do so.

You make an in game moral choice to do bad actions just like you do in that game Fable.

It doesn't make you a sociopath or a criminal, but it does show you like to have an outlet by fantasizing about doing immoral things.

Also, I highly doubt someone would fire you if you are found to be a douche canoe online. Its just I am asking would you be comfortable with employers knowing this.

Would you gank your boss' Hulk? Would you gank your mother's Hulk? Would you gank a developmentally challenged person's Hulk?

How would they feel about it?
How would you feel about it?
How should the world feel about it and why?
