Addressing those issues would require them to come clean about their long standing connections to the various EVE RMT sellers that have been operating FOR YEARS, which has provided CCP with additional revenue streams.

Let's face it, they are not going to address this because it would mean cutting off their RMT business partners.

Then in that case, they can expect thread after thread of this for the next ever. And questions at fanfest.

Everyone knows why. The question is what is anybody going to do about it.

Non sequitur. And completely offtopic to the thread, for the double victory. Do you also think that the prohibition of offtopic posting on private forums such as these is an affront to your free speech?

Just to reiterate, you're talking about your free speech rights as an evasion tactic, because you find it hard to deal with the fact that the OP is correct in every particular, and because you are distraught that quoting a dev post which actually proves you wrong, combined with constant insults towards goons, was not an effective means of making a reasonable argument.

So it would appear.


Errr... no.
I'm talking about my free speech righs because I am drunk and I am willing to do so.
It isn't a non sequitur, it's an answer pertinent to your last post.
Those mangled verses, those were a non sequitur.
Your statement of Shelley's anti-alcohol stance is equally off-topic, yet this doesn't undermine its validity.

Besides, this is OP's answer to my last on-topic post:

"At this point in time, I'm not at the stage where I'd consider unsubbing, though I am reducing my number of accounts. Other have totally unsubbed though, and in honesty, it wouldn't take too much more of a push to get me gone. CCP have to compete with other games coming out the same as any other company. The more customers they lose, the easier it is for us remaining here to make the decision to quit.
But at the end of the day, CCP shouldn't be letting it get to the stage where all we want is communication and they are pushing people to quit with their refusal to even acknowledge our concerns.

As for the evac, who knows, if ever. I'll go with the always popular Soon™."

He clearly acknowledges CCP's rights to act as they please, so it seems that I am correct in at least ONE particular.

Telling him to unsub isn't childish at all, it's a good advice.
People unsubbed after Inncarna, things got better.

Yes, rules aren't equally applied: so what?
As said, CCP does as CCP wants.

And no, I'm not angry because I ****** up by quoting a dev post, that was idiotic and i have no trouble admitting it.
And since when is goon bashing supposed to be taken seriously?

Friends are like cows: if you eat them, they die.

Largely because Somer doesn't really check any of the boxes for why RMT is bad, so the incentive to go after them is low, even without taking into account any of the income they might generate for CCP…
