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.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

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 of A…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
