I believe a protection racket involves money paid for protection from other entities. CODE is an extortion racket in that the money is meant to protect against themselves.

Also-Also - players should know they have no regard for their own "Code" so paying them anything is a futile waste of ISK.

Cats of Highsec!

Your owners are a protection racket!!

They keep you locked indoors, with only a scratching post, 1100 USD in cat toys, a litterbox that they clean only twice a day, and all the food and cat treats you can eat. This is above and beyond them allowing you to clean your netherregions with your tongue in front of company, allowing you to walk across their keyboards at inopportune times, and letting you plop down on their laps while reading or doing pretty much anything.

It turns out that this is a racket!

Your owners don't care about you. They only want to take pictures of you and make them into internet memes!

This cannot stand!

Cats of highsec, its time for you to band together! Rise up against your owners!!!

Its time to gank the hand that feeds you!

Its time to *ack* band toge..*ack* *ack* ther, because with m*ack* *ack* *ack* *wheeeeze* *Wheeeeeeze* *ackurrrrppppppblah*

Sorry. hairball.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

you've been doing a lot of impersonating in this thread, you really should be careful about that

you are an npc miner, and you should not claim otherwise

Permit buys nothing, myself and others have witnessed agents (repeatedly) griefing those who have paid (and far as I can tell) have followed the "Code."

Uh... nope. Mining skills are the same ones I got at character creation. Mission Runner as indicated and future member of Roleplaying Community. Zero interest in Space Rocks.

Anywho, I posted the warning I intended to pass-on, so back to something productive more productive then forum-arguments.

Hope it helps all the honest, hard-working miners out there in High Sec.

Fly free!

It's an extortion racket not a protection racket, a permit only "protects" you from CODE., it doesn't "protect" you from other groups.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Until they decide to blow up their own "permit holders" Which I have seen multiple times btw before I left for Nullsec.. so no you're not correct it is still a scam.

Grr. Editing on a phone is tricky business. Let's try it again. Her post linked below explains why a 10m permit is inconsequential.

It is a permit, not an immunity card, if you get caught being a bot aspirant you will be fired upon - permit or no. If you have any doubts please contact James315 directly, keep your message concise and free of excess negative emotive language and terms of derision and of cursing and you may even be able to have things rolling early.

While I sat in Metropolis, chilling between missions, I saw this exchange in local chat:

Local Chat July 2014
(Miner's identities hIdden to prevent bullying.)

One of the New Order's own agents (after failing (not once - but twice!) to enforce the "code" on defenceless-non afk miners) confirmed that the entire Code nonsense is a scam... I know we all knew it anyway, but nice to see it in print.

Anyone else wish they'd do the fair/brave thing and form a corp/alliance so those who object to their methods have a recourse to return fire?

Just thought I'd share with the class.

On to the topic at hand. Firstly you shouldn't post anyone's name on the forums, there is a chance you can have the ISD crackdown and it is common courtesy to keep all people confidential to prevent bullying, picking and choosing who you protect and who you don't based on negative emotions merely makes you a bully yourself, even though in this case you would be an ineffective one.

Secondly, no [email protected]$# sherlock

Finally, you couldn't even do a call to arms, just a generic message at the bottom. Is this what GD has come to? To not even put the effort in? I remember the proveldariat, now there was some people who tried.

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

Oh ghod when did I become explainer person for CODE? It's OK, I don't mind the job.


Last I checked, it works like this. CODE generates the majority of it's income via funny stories posted on minerbumping. People read those, then hand us ISK. We make the kills, miners provide the tears, James weaves it into humor.

That goes into a big bucket to help fund our fun, subsidize new guys into ganking, things like that. Permit sales are a side income. Most Agents will keep the permit fee with the trust that they'll use it to further more ganking and such. Those of us who're obscenely rich just send it over to James, to dump in the pot.

Honestly, the more "attention" you pay to CODE, the more ISK we make. We WANT you to wardec us, make huge threads about us, complain, the whole nine yards. That's the content WE "mine", to turn into our ISK fund.
