One of the nice things about EvE is that even if you don't think the CSM is very good at what it does, you can still vote for a third party or a fourth or a fifth. I always vote for a fifth of vodka if she's running.

I happen to think the CSM does a pretty damn good job most of the time, so I don't troll vote.

But you can troll vote, and you should! Because that's better than not participating. See, if you don't participate, there's a certain amount of legitimate complaining that you can't participate in. And we all know these forums (yes, I know, some of you think it should be fora, but you are all wrong) are full of people who like to complain.

So get your butt over to here: https://community.eveonline.com/community/csm/vote/

and throw some names into those boxes, so that we can all take you seriously when you complain about how awful and pointless the CSM is.

Trust me. I'm enabling your future complaints here. Just vote now, and I won't make fun of you a month from now about how you didn't bother to vote.

Personaly I took baltec's list on who I show vote for, and voted on people not on his list! It was very helpful for my non-mainstream tendencies!

Please vote!

Never not vote for CSM.

Take your time to decide. There are many resources out there to help match you to the CSM who can best represent you, but I encourage people to listen to interviews and read CSM candidate positions. The person you might think is the best for you, may turn out to be the worst. Even listen to those who you may not think represent you at all, and you may find out that they have your best interest in mind after all.

Anyone who doesn't vote, doesn't have the right to complain.


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

If you were to run for office at some point, I would totally vote for you because of your amazingly . . . huge . . . tarpedo-sized . . . intellects.

Anyone who puts a comma where you just did is certainly unsuccessful at everything else in life. :)

Its really hard to be unsuccessful at everything unless I try my best to show some measure of failure.

Thats what we all love about you. Your so willing to fail in order to succeed at being unsuccessful.


Dammit, your unsuccess seems to be contagious.

No. I think CCPs public relations gimmick can run just fine without me. Cool

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

So would you vote for a candidate who ran on a platform of "CSM is a CCP PR gimmick. Do not vote for me."?

Once one has courted the Big Lie...that is the definition of corrupt. "Trust me. I'm not like the others." So. No. CCP has already demonstrated its position in relation to the customer. That's the problem with trying to get good fruit from a
bad tree. Cool

But haven't you already co-opted with the Big Lie? How can I trust you? You are posting right here on these same forums that I am. The ones that CCP controls! Yikes! Maybe you are a CCP plant who is just here to help CCP claim that CSM is pointless because no one votes anymore because of the Big Lie!

Holy sh!t, maybe you are part of the Lie!!

Everyone vote for Serene Repose!! We must expose the Big Lie on the giant rotten apple bush!!

Vote for me if you want. If I win, I won't show up. And, who said you could trust me? This is the land of "trust no one" with people exclaiming, "Trust me! Trust me!" And yeah, CCP loves me. I make six figures a year in their PR office. I do wonders for their corporate image.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

No, it does not invalidate the criticisms of the system if you don't make a choice between two sh*t options given.

I mean, really. It does smack a bit like the student council of yore. That had a lot of cheerleaders ga-ga-ing along.
So does this. Who gets to sit at the cool table at Homecoming?

The right to free speech doesn't automatically carry with it the right to be taken seriously.
