    What? Both points you said are wrong. Sure you can name a Station "Vile Rat", since it's none of "real-world group or organization, terrorist society, criminal elements, discriminating organizations or their leaders and figureheads".

    The second point you quoted does not forbid naming things after in-game items, it just specifies what in-game items you are NOT allowed to name after the previous points. You are still totally free to name your rifter "Incursus".

    Well, this dashes my plans to create a character called The Mittoni and rule over my new Goomswarn alliance.

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

    Lol Reading is hard, apparently.

    Why is it that the clearer they make the EULA, the more people manage to completely fail to understand what it says?

    No, it's business.

    If anyone online wants to do business now they have to comply with basic legal etiquette.

    EvE is becoming more conventional than exceptional.

    Then quit. Surely your convictions are not worth sacrificing over a game.

    By the way, since we're already talking, do you want to buy a rifter? I've got the cheapest rifters in Metropolis. If you can find a cheaper rifter, buy it!
