Lovely to see the Eve RP community in it's finest form, somehow managing to create entire fowlfarms out of a feather. The sheer hunger for things to drama about must be endless. Now how about someone who was actually involved provides a couple of details before the lynchmob gets too much momentum, shall we?
Jin Otsito, a relatively fresh egger spots something new and potentially interesting. Someone with no profile picture. She points this out with a bit of mirth, then as there's no answer fills the silence with a few terribly bad puns on face. Mostly they're even so bad they don't qualify as puns, instead just using the word face in appropriate spots in her statements.
There was no trolling. There was no teasing. There was no derisiveness or taunts. There was no hostility. There was nothing but a little bad and silly humor. In fact, let me dig up the logs for you ladies and gentlemen.
[ 2012.12.03 17:08:46 ] Anderes Duellene > Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen.
[ 2012.12.03 17:09:12 ] Solarienne > Sasieni
[ 2012.12.03 17:09:52 ] Jinari Otsito > Did you know you have no face?
[ 2012.12.03 17:10:13 ] Lasairiona > /emote giggles, "Hello."
[ 2012.12.03 17:11:44 ] Scherezad > "Um, hello, sir. My, uh, my deepest, um. Condolences."
[ 2012.12.03 17:12:19 ] Jinari Otsito > Don't get too misty, I'm sure he can find his face someday.
[ 2012.12.03 17:12:34 ] Jinari Otsito > Or has something happened, maybe?
[ 2012.12.03 17:15:30 ] Scherezad > "Um, the, the events at, um, Evaulon."
[ 2012.12.03 17:15:41 ] Jinari Otsito > Ah. I suppose he lost face.
[ 2012.12.03 17:16:02 ] Lasairiona > /emote waves, "Hi Schere."
[ 2012.12.03 17:16:31 ] Scherezad > "Um, he, he lost, um, a lot more. Than, um, face. Oh, um, hello."
[ 2012.12.03 17:16:54 ] Dardalou Tokila > He might have lost his face and honor after the mentioned events?
[ 2012.12.03 17:17:05 ] Jinari Otsito > Well, I'm sure the Serpents will show themselves for a... face off.
[ 2012.12.03 17:18:35 ] Lasairiona > I think you scared him off.
[ 2012.12.03 17:19:00 ] Jinari Otsito > And I didn't even have to make a scary face.
[ 2012.12.03 17:20:01 ] Anderes Duellene > Perhaps I'll return later, when conversation reaches the appropriate level of maturity for what I have to say.
[ 2012.12.03 17:20:06 ] Anderes Duellene > Good evening, pilots.
[ 2012.12.03 17:20:14 ] Anderes Duellene > /emote disconnects
[ 2012.12.03 17:20:41 ] Jinari Otsito > Hmm. Would have thought he could face worse than that.
[ 2012.12.03 17:23:20 ] Lasairiona > /emote groans and shakes her head.
So as you can see, quite clearly, there was no trolling. There was a character acting perfectly IC in a slightly silly way. Frankly, having seen what can go on without comment in The Summit, this is Shakespearean prose. I have in the short life-span of Jinari seen people get farted on(!) for christ's sake. I also have yet to spot any rules against jokes or bad humor. If the above isn't acceptable, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask the moderators to look over this thread, because it's getting dangerously close to urdoinitrong which the rules do in fact prohibit.
As for CCP Falcon, calling paying subscribers stupid (exact word used) for RPing with his actor without going stoneface serious business right off the bat, I find quite unacceptable from an official representative of CCP. Players in moderator positions and such get some leeway for being simply that. Players in voluntary positions. Official CCP representatives should act more professional in my opinion.
Don't worry, though. I'll leave the Summit to the completely serious business that is the hallmark of the channel while there's Yellow there, shall I?
