    I just started paying for EVE yesterday. I played the 14-day trial like three months ago and loved almost everything about the game but didn't have the money to pay for it until now. If I was that dude though then I'd find out where the people who ripped him off live and murder all of them and all adult members of their families, and then kill myself for being such a fucking idiot.

    Pfft, that aint shit.
    had one of our guild bankers in EQ quit and take all the shit he was holding.
    I tallied it all up and it came to $30,000-$50,000 worth of items.

    If that fucker didnt live over in europe I would have paid him a visit and probably been in the news.
