WTF Mining Permit from Goonswarm??

Hulkageddon V Mining Permits

An: Wilma Shakespear,

Greetings!

It appears that you were the unfortunate victim of a Hulkageddon gank. As you may have heard, Hulkageddon V has been ongoing since April 30th, and it is well-known that hundreds of Hulks are destroyed during these campaigns. Hulks are notoriously weak and the poor state of T2 hull insurance makes these ships extremely costly to lose for the victims, while extremely cheap to kill for the gankers.

This is where I come in. I am the Goonswarm Federation director in charge of managing the Hulkageddon campaign, and I deal with selling Mining Permits. The purchase of a Permit ensures that Hulkageddon participants do not target you - should they do so, any winnings they may claim are immediately void, and your loss will be FULLY reimbursed at current Jita prices!

To purchase a Mining Permit, send this character 250 million ISK with the reason "PERMIT" and you will shortly be listed under our exemptions list (characters that Hulkageddon participants must set blue for the duration of the campaign) and any Hulk losses you lose to suicide ganks throughout the remainder of the Hulkageddon campaign will be reimbursed, provided the following conditions:

- Any losses within 4 hours of payment will NOT be reimbursed. Wait 4 hours after payment before resuming your mining! The reason for this is that gankers have some leeway to keep their contacts up to date with that spreadsheet, and cannot be expected to continuously check it.
- The loss must be in HIGH SECURITY space (0.5 security or better!) No party on your killmail may have an active war declaration against your corporation/alliance or be a member of your corporation.
- Any indication of MACRO USAGE will void your request. Goonswarm Federation does not intend on supporting botters.
- Fraud will not be tolerated. Anyone suicide ganking their own Hulks to collect payouts through this plan will be denied payment.
- Only characters that send 250,000,000 ISK to "Andski" will be listed on the no-kill list! Alts are not covered, unless you send this character that same amount of ISK from those alts!

For reference, your character name will be listed on this exemption list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ag0_cKv2BUAhdHI2NHU5YVY2eERqVU9GZnhVLUJRVVE

Happy mining!

Proceed at your own risk.

Nothing clever at this time.

I'd pay it, Goonswarms are know to be the trustworthy sort. You don't want to lose your mining ship to gankers do you?

Personally I'm using the 5th edition, where that scam is listed as #124-7c.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Sometimes when I post, I look at my sig and wish that I'd follow my own god damned advice.

I'm happy my hulk's are safe from hulkageddon. With tech prices these days it'd be a shame to have to replace them.

And we don't. Botting, RMTing, and other douchie things are prohibited from even being discussed on Goonfleet services (forums, mumble, in game chat, etc). In addition, if we do find botters, they are free kills -- being blue won't protect them.

Can you say that about all the highsec industrial corps that are quite literally thriving on the backbone of botted minerals?

No?

Confirming: Goons are more ethical than Highsec Miner Pubbies.
