Okay CCP, it's time. Acknowledge the legitimacy of The New Order, James 315, and bumping.

My beloved Devs, allow me to clarify one thing right of the bat. I am NOT asking for CCP to acknowledge James 315's sovereign claim to highsec systems, or his titles of Father of the New Order, Supreme Protector of Halaima, or Savior of Highsec. I (unlike many carebears) am not asking for any special treatment whatsoever for James or his followers. 

I'm asking for a clarification of of CCP's position concerning The New Order's activities in Highsec, particularly bumping, not for my sake, but for the miners.

You see, despite countless rejected petitions, and the tireless efforts of our great GMs to explain to each disgruntled miner that what they've experienced is emergent gameplay that in no way violates the EULA, many miners are still laboring under the delusion that our permaban is just around the corner. Worse yet, the problem is exacerbated by the cookie-cutter replies some GMs issue to distraught carebears of "We're looking into it." More experienced players know that this is a complete "****-off" dismissa designed to shut you up for a whilel. They're not looking into it, they have IMPORTANT things to look into. None the less, it does a great disservice to the miners, sustaining their hope that James and us agents are one bump away from the ban-hammer. The sooner they realize that CCP is not coming to save them, the sooner they can accept our presence and move on, adapt, or who knows, maybe even embrace The New Order. So please bare in mind that I ask this not for myself or James, or The New Order, but for the poor miners who stagnate in their perpetual wait for Superman.

What we need is an authoritative, citable, linkable statement from a Dev, simply stating that Superman isn't coming. The New Halaima Code of Conduct, as well as the act of bumping to enforce it, are compliant with the Terms of Service.

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change."
-Charles Darwin

The carebears must now adapt, and they're understandably upset, they're not used to being asked to do that. By issuing such a statement, CCP would make the transition that much easier for them. The truth will set them free.

In fact, I'd like to take it one step further than merely acknowledging the legality of The New Order.

Who among you Devs, GMs, and ISDs will dare come out of the closet as fans of The New Order? Supporters??Members?!?! :D

I eagerly await your responses, peppered with the rage of many a bear. 

Thank you so much for your time,
Immortally yours,

I was told that I'm not allowed to troll....

I have been reminded of this on several occasions....

It just REALLY annoys me that I see threads like this and I cannot entertain myself....

I think CCP should block half of these forums from the general "public" and lets us run wild on threads like this...

Could you send me your fit for your bump ship please? Im assuming you must be a highly skilled pilot, and i fear i may not have the correct combat skills to achieve this elite form of pvp.

I spend my days bumping miners because I am a little fat man with no friends in real life and no hope for ever doing anything productive in society. I am also so risk adverse that I have to do it in highsec hiding in an NPC corp.

Did I hit the nail on the head?

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They will turn away no more

And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortunes
I'd be a heavenly person today

And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how should I feel

Now I stand here waiting

I thought I told you to leave me
While I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold
(grows cold, grows cold, grows cold)

I don't think so. I think what James is doing has taken quite a lot of hard work and effort. His motives are well defined and though his arrogance makes his actions come across as griefing, his interests lie in the overall health of New Eden. You may think he's a troll and for the most part, he is, but he's a clever troll and overall, he is trolling for the benefit of all of us.

Your darling James315 inability to understand some basic stuff, like for instance, in a SANDBOX game people can choose to play differently from him, I can safely admit Darwin law is something he has no clue about.

Nor you either.

If any CCP employee answered this, I'd

1) laugh and
2) whine about the dozens of threats opened in such a manner instead of filing petitions etc.

Hey OP, I'm glad you didn't ask CCP Hellmar to respond.

Don't be scared, because being afk is not a crime.

See?

Now James315 is griefing the Dev's.....Lol

I fully support His Imperial Majesty, and I am currently working out the rules for the first ever Minerball League.

Players would get points for distance, of course, duration (how long it takes the miner to realize he has been bumped), style, and accuracy (Mack off the Retriever into the ice roid).

Currently nanofit Machs and the now infamous 100mn Stabber Fleet Issue seem to be the bumping ships of choice.

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)
