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
