There should be more threads like this about eve wrong stuff, eve would be a better a place :).
Censorship leads to frustration or even leaving the game.
Listening to player base instead makes the company look better and makes player happier.

I don't care much about scamming (even if the impersonating stuff went a little to far tbh,make clear rules) but threads like this makes me feel alive , or at least beeing part of something.

I'm a member of Goonswarm Federation.

I'd like to report myself for claiming to be a member of Goonswarm Federation because obviously this character is in an NPC corp. GM Karidor ban me for impersonation please.

CCP mostly sucks at their job, but Veritas is a pretty cool dude.

22 pages and we still have the same explanation from a couple days ago with more words that don't clarify anything.

That's not entirely fair. We now have more words that explain that it has grown into something much bigger than before, as opposed to the old words that tried to (incorrectly) claim that nothing had changed.

Oh no, we've gotten plenty of clarification, it's just been "the rules have always been more terrible than anyone anticipated".

Spais are also now against the TOS.

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

By the way, I wonder if this'll make more headlines than Burn Jita. GM-generated content best content!

And by extension the GM team is far more terrible than we ever imagined. (and that is saying something)

I'd like to take this opportunity to report my self for falsely representing my....self... as belonging to the group of players known as "people who give a flying **** about eve anymore". I just realised I no longer belong to the group and as such should be banned for falsely representing myself to the community.

So, should we bend over a little more, how much?

I, Spartacus, suggest that you all make backups of boot.ini since CCP seems to be returning to their old habits.

I may or may not be impersonating one of my alts or vice versa.

While we have a break in the action... (and my head IS still spinning around this...) -

I applaud the many Goons for seriously engaging to get this all straightened out, but is it only me that feels a bit of irony in that this "clarification" does bolster their new renting efforts?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.... LOL

They have clearly been listening with their game-changing "clarifications", and their boilerplate copy and paste and "this is not the change you are looking for"

So if I'm reading this right the "clarification" bans scamming and most of the metagame. Two huge sources of free advertising for CCP, why is this a good idea now?

The great irony in this is we had just banned scamming for rentals internally and were converting our best scammers to "rental agents". Now this. Lololol so meta

At this point, anything I would like to say in regards to the re-clarification of the clarification of the clarification of the ToS has already been said. All I can add at this point is that I would be taken out back and given the Ol' Yeller treatment if I ever submitted a ToS revision like this. Its bad, the "clarification" is still bad, and the specific GM/CCP policies still need to outlined appropriately to prevent ambiguity in interpretation of the language of the three clauses quoted, especially the discrepancy between the first two specifically calling out the "identity' of entities versus the lack of such language in the new ToS change.
