WHEREAS there exist certain commonly-held standards of Fairness and Justice, and


WHEREAS, inasuch as these standards exist in the moral domain rather than any legal domain, they do not recognize boundaries created by humans declaring the permissibility or impermissibility of actions which violate them, and


WHEREAS, inasmuch as humans have meaningful interests both physical and digital realms, these standards do not of necessity confine themselves to one or the other, and


WHEREAS the activities of destroying or appropriating another person's assets or livelihood without their express consent violates these standards, and


WHEREAS such activities in New Eden are commonplace, and


WHEREAS no official or canonical peacekeeping authority has shown itself both able and willing to prevent such activities in a meaningful and consistent manner, and


WHEREAS the interests of Fairness and Justice are not satisfied by those who have been victimized by violations of these standards taking leave of the realm in which such violations are permitted by human authority, but which they would otherwise not have cause to leave;


THEREFORE now we, certain Industrialists and allies of Industrialists residing in the high security systems of New Eden, do now:


UNITE in common cause against those who deprive us of assets and livelihood in New Eden in violation of Fairness and Justice;


DECLARE as Enemies of the Union all Griefers in New Eden, as well as those who give aid and comfort to said Griefers, be that aid financial, logistical, moral, or otherwise;


DENOUNCE all Griefers, and all their works and ends;


CALL UPON all Capsuleers of New Eden to likewise denounce them, and to deprive them of their own assets and livelihood in a manner and to an extent befitting the egregiousness of their crimes against Fairness and Justice;


RESOLVE to organize and facilitate the organization of fleets, corporations, alliances, and other organizations for mutual protection and profit, but these organizations shall not have official standing within the Union;


RESOLVE to educate Industrialists on protecting their assets and livelihoods against Griefers;


RESOLVE to encourage the sharing of information on Griefers and their activities;


CREATE the chat channel "Union 416," which will be open to the public, and from which announcements may be made, and further discussion facilitated, pertaining to the Union;


DISCLAIM that nothing in this Declaration should be construed as condoning, encouraging, or permitting any violation of the EVE Online Terms of Service or End User License Agreement; and


PLEDGE to the ideals set forth herein, and to the goals and ends of the Union, our time, our effort, our mutual trust, and our sacred honor.


Done this 16th day of April, 2014.

So they should tank their ships a bit better, or maybe fly with friends? It's not rocket surgery.

Basically, you're creating a group for people who want to grief others but have an aire of legitimacy about it? In my experience that's what most "anti-badguy" movements in MMO's seem to devolve into- a bunch of thugs who are afraid to look like thugs.

A chat channel where people can "share" information about griefers... AKA start witch hunts. "Hey guys, I heard JimBob is a griefer!" "Oh noes, lets form a fleet and gank him!"

Seriously Bernie, I'm not sure how you couldn't get through that. Lol I started reading once the whereas's stopped.

So from what I gathered a public chat channel is being formed to stop gankers and griefers. Thank god, I don't know why no one has ever tried this before!

words


Hello Eloise Stormgren,

First off let me start by saying thank you for bringing this to my attention. You have a well documented statement showing your great concerns by showering us with many words. I would like to take this opportunity to see if we can find a peaceful resolution to all of this. Clearly, it would be best for all of us, no? Contact me in-game and let's see if we can work something out, together!

Abandon all hope ye who x up in fleet

Oh, I got through it, I just wanted the tl;dr so no one had to read that entire post. Seriously, it's depressing to think someone would write like that.

If you'd like to roleplay, there are sub-forums for it in the listing below this one.

Otherwise, please don't make nonsensical, repetetive posts.

Cheers Smile
