Yet despite all of the vitriol flung at our alliance on a daily basis, ~70-80% of our members are from the general EVE community and not from Something Awful.


From what I have seen in other games (too new to EVE to comment on your particulars), many sludge players simply gravitate to the most powerful group in the game. When you lose that power, the transients jump ship en masse.

Propaganda doesn't generally work well with these transient sludge players, but it is effective if you target it properly at higher value players to make them embarrassed to associate with their current affiliations.

It doesn't. That said, if hate speech goes unchecked and unpunished by leadership, then that's a pretty deplorable ship that you're running.


You honestly think this happens?

We don't have a toxic level of racism or homophobia in our alliance. We're actually pretty good at weeding out the unrepentant stormfront types from our membership, and it's a process that doesn't involve director action at all (we just troll them out because the stormfront types tend to be pretty thin-skinned, ironically)

I have no opinion on any particular corporation since it would be based on complete ignorance. I was merely saying that if a corporation/alliance has a "few bigots posting hate speech", I would condemn/not associate with the corporation/alliance if its leadership doesn't do anything about it.

What's there to discuss? Were you stupid enough to let your browser hit a Goonrun website?
I guess now you know better...unless you actually registered and posted on it...THEN?
You may need treatment. I hope it's not too late. You did run a browser cleaner afterward?
Your browser has a better chance of not being scarred than do you, my friend.
Unless of course you ARE a Goon, ginning up your posting quota to please your masters....
In that case neither therapy, nor a strong cleaner will help you.

Paradise is like where you are right now, only much, much better.

Here's another example

Not related just hate the term Homophobe......Just cause you disagree with something doesn't mean you're afraid of it.

Carry on.

Edit: Bigot-: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.


Now hatred I understand to be a bad thing but minus the word hatred and you have 99.9% of the human race.

Just saying

I think now is the right time to remind everyone that 'homophobia' is a made up word and 'racism' is an oversimplification of not liking things that you don't like.

Firstly Homophobia although "made up" uses existing words that have meanings and those meaning are not used in the new word. secondly "oversimplification of not liking things that you don't like" Is not racism. Although I don't think you typed what you meant.

Firstly Homophobia although "made up" uses existing words that have meanings and those meaning are not used in the new word. What the word IS, is a proboganda tool to make people avoid disagreeing.

3. Ranting is prohibited.

A rant is a post that is often filled with angry and counterproductive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and is helpful in development of the game and community. Rants are disruptive, and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise and clear manner while avoiding going off on rambling tangents.
