Shhh don't give away internet secrets.

Anyways, I'm all for mining while AFK cloaked. AFK cloakers deserve some income generation for their valuable service to New Eden.

Great Solution. No more cyno alts, scouts, or anything else anyone might use a 2nd account for. And it doesn't fix either of the reasons you gave. Yeah, let's do that. (Sarcasm.)

How about no? You deserve being afk camped for joining a CFC renter alliance. Roll

Your flame suit is not enough for that, because other people use several accounts for a wide variety of things, which have nothing to do with camping and would be made harder/impossible just due to your petty wrong decision.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

This idea seems so daft it must be a troll. In the unlikely case it's not, please except my sincere apologies for locking this thread and please feel free to repost it with at least some arguments why you think this is a good proposal and should be implemented.

I have also removed a rule breaking post.

The rules:
4. Personal attacks are prohibited.

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts that are designed to personally berate or insult another forum user. Posts of this nature are not beneficial to the community spirit that CCP promote and as such they will not be tolerated.

5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.

Thread locked.
