"Like Border Collies, if you don't keep Goons busy they'll start eating the sofa cushions and herding the household cats. Or the other way around. Both are messy and involve constant clean up."
- Fiddlers Edge: Mittens and Markets, December 20, 2011Over at Crossing Zebras, Zander has decided to do the dance on the edge of the abyss that is called speaking truth to power.
The message sent by the blue doughnut leadership's slap-down of Montolio doesn't appear to be sitting well with a number of rank and file CFC pilots. There is discontent at the current moratorium on sov warfare, which said pilots regard as an attempt to turn nullsec into a player-controlled Disneyland. The message the coalition pilots are getting from CFC leadership seems pretty straightforward: Speak the party line or stfu. Thus, by saying what some of his comrades are saying, Zander risks taking up arms against a sea of troubles .
Ballsy word-smithing Zander. Respect.
My comments responding to Xander's post anticipates some of the content of my upcoming post 'Farms and Fields: Metagame'. And it's uncharacteristically brief, so I thought you might enjoy the preview.
