if I'm an ignorant, lazy, selfish liar; why do you even bother to engage me?

Because it amuses me to watch you flail around and making a fool of yourself.

Also, because I don't like lying. Some poor new player might come on here, see your nonsense, and not know any better. People like you are the true "griefers" in EVE Online, constantly lying to new players and trying to get them to bore themselves to death.

in other words, you just like to troll

well, troll on..

You have never said that, let alone umpteen times.

my whole proposal for a fleet engagement type flag contained the proviso that it would be activated by the victim . please read my posts properly if you wish me to continue responding to your ahem, constructive criticisms.
OK so I read this and thought, did he really say this for the umpteenth time? So I thought, let's check.

Up until this post, bb talked mostly of MJD. But as you can see, that was his first talk of his flag idea. No mention of the pilot having to activate the flag.

Here he talks more about his idea and fleshes it out some. There is talk of activation, but not that the pilot will be doing it.

He quotes his idea again here.

In this post he talks again about getting a flag, but no mention of how it's activated.

Now this post is interesting. He does mention the following.
...freighter pilot accepts fleet invo from ag fleet, then activates his limited engagement timer on machs, who immediately engage freighter as code logi warp in to rep machs and ag fleet engage machs...
He mentions activation of a limited timer, but it's not all that clear how it's activated.

Here he talks of his idea and a fleet engagement timer and not a limited one, but nothing about activation.

This post he tries to give more info regarding speeds etc and when a fleet flag would be awarded. No mention of activation.

At this point he talks of it being a 'limited fleet engagement'/'suspect timer. But again, no words on activation.

This post also talks of when a flag would be awarded, but not about it's activation.

Timers timers everywhere, but not an activation in sight.

He again talks about timers being awarded, but no clarity on activation.

Here he does mention when the timer activates on the bumper. Apparently when the freighter activates his warp drives. So not a manual activation?

And here he mentions activation, but not that's it's done manually.


So I do find his umpteenth time and read my posts properly statements, to be a little out of sorts with what he actually did post.
I believe he has me blocked, due to posting uncomfortable facts. So can someone explain his error and ask him to apologize to Scipio please.

Thank you kindly. Big smile

You suggested I would be open to being called a carebear, you obviously thought it served the topic of this thread.

You have my rebuttal to your suggestion.

Oh I see.. whatever I write, you feel compelled to respond? P

When a post is addressed to me personally, it is common courtesy to reply. You're apparently unaware of this, given your failure to reply to a multitude of posts that addressed you personally.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I think I cleaned 8 pages of this thread last time. I'm not going to do it again.

The topic has been beaten to death and some feel the need to throw personal attacks at each other. Locked... forever...!
