Meta Tinfoil

I got a msg while at work asking, “Does THC2 convo spam?”
 “No.”
 “Someone has accused Diz of it on reddit.”
 “Oh?”  I went to look.

I read reddit but I don’t comment.  I had seen the thread but I tend not to go to the ship/pod loss threads.  I have nothing to say in them.  Loss happens.  I don’t spend my time making judgment calls over fights I was not involved in based off of a loss mail.  It took me a minute to realize that that was the thread with Diz’s pod loss.  Oh. Okay.

Top comment with 9 upvotes is accusing us of being convo spammers.

Interesting.  I made a reddit account. I was all ready to say: “In the year that I have been with THC2 it has never been discussed, suggested, or ordered.  Considering the small size of our groups I am not sure how we are going to convo spam with 3-8 (maybe 10) people.”

I stopped myself before I hit send.  Heh.  Reddit is not a place that defending would work out well.  I had almost forgotten. At least I have a reddit account now.  Maybe I will use it. I enjoy reading reddit but I have had enough traffic flow through when people have linked blog posts that I am wary of stepping into that pool as more than an observer.  I just wrote the other day about picking and choosing my battles vs my energy.  I have energy to blog about it but not to engage in a comment up/down vote battle.

Of course, with convo spamming being illegal the tinfoil hat may say that I am not going to admit to wrong doing publicly   However, I didn’t know about convo spamming until the articles about it last year and the judgment that it was an exploit.  Being silly, I use convo requests to talk to people.  Sure, there is a chance that there is a massive conspiracy to not let me know that it is going on but considering that most of my corpmates don’t have any channel but fleet and corp chat on blink I’m rather comfortable saying it is not something we do.

  1. Not sure why people would be so interested in my losing a pod. It happens. As it was I was caught by surprise just after I had been caught by surprise by a place hot drop. So when I jumped my flashy noon ship into a frigate gate camp I knew I was in bad shape. Went to warp the ship off it popped warped my pod off and it died as I was in warp. Oh well it happens what ya gonna do. As far as THC Congo spamming people it just haters saying whatever they feel like just to spread some hate around. THC is to busy fighting to Congo spam

    1. Auto sabotaged by auto correct. It was PL who had hot dropped us and I was in a noob ship when I ran into the camp.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
