Eve Online's Carebears...

There is a good post over at Mabrick's Mumblings that is in sync with today's rant. I also read the article by Ali Aras over at TMC and have to take issue with several of her points. Let me start out with a few famous quotes to set the stage.

“Wrong does not cease to be wrong because the majority share in it.”
― Leo Tolstoy, A Confession

“Right is right even if no one is doing it; wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.”
― Augustine of Hippo

“If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.”
― Jules Renard

“If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what’s right.”
― E.A. Bucchianeri

First I will tackle Mabrick's post. AMEN BROTHER! You hit the nail right on the head! I could not have put it any better myself. Here is the problem though. You have massive groups of people like Goonswarm (aren't they just so evil) that will do what you said each and every time. They think that their way of playing should be forced on everyone and if you disagree with that you will suffer the wrath of Mittens. Sigh.

Then you have the new fresh look from Ali Aras who is running for CSM and wants to show everyont that she is on their side when it comes to the new players in eve. Her explanation is nothing more then a fallacy. What is a fallacy?

Fallacies are fake or deceptive arguments, arguments that prove nothing. Fallacies often seem superficially sound, and far too often have immense persuasive power, even after being clearly exposed as false. Fallacies are not always deliberate, but a good scholar’s purpose is always to identify and unmask fallacies in arguments.

She talks about how the poor new player in Eve can not make any ISK but then goes right into telling you how much she can make and how successful she has become without once telling the reader how she went from NOOB to the ultra elitist status in Eve online.

I have news for you Ali, your whole blog is a fallacy. If the current system did not work we would not have the eve online that we do today. It kept me in the game, it kept you in the game, and we both learned what we wanted to learn though the process. So say it is broken now is just plain wrong.
Even Jester seems to be smitten with her which I find helps prove my point even better since he is usually prone to seeing these things. Want more proof? Here is one more quote off her post.

"She enjoys everything from solo/duo roaming to suicide ganking to FCing 50-100 battleship fleets to ratting to running a small moongoo reaction empire."

Now how do you start playing eve online and want to be the voice for new players in eve when you clearly show that your not a new player, maybe a GSW canidate? New players can not do what your doing! TROLL! Thoughts?
