Uh, oh, look what a vanity Google search turned up. This is from the Tweak’n’Co forums (closed, but visible in Google snippet and Google cache). I remember the quoted Braedin character having a big and smacky mouth in local, though I don’t recall the actual incident that turned him away from the mining life:

I’d like to get myself a Rokh.

im having trouble decided wether or not i should mine most of the minerals and then refine all but the good loot i get from lvl 4s and buy a one run bpc and manufacture it myself, but after my incident in the belt with the theif marlenus.
ill probably do level4s with you guys to get 200mil

Let me scan the killmails…

Aha! My memory is refreshed. This is the guy who came after my blockade runner in a mining cruiser fitted with a single HAM launcher. Turned out he didn’t have the speed to control range against me, so I kept him warp scrambled but outside the range of his hams while I chewed him up with the missile launcher that fits in the Crane’s one high slot. It was actually one of the funniest combats of my Eve career.

    sry I know this is an old post but I didn’t hear about this until one of my corpies found it in there random searching and let me be the first to say they we’re laughing as hard a you were.

    Just for the record, Braedin’s idea of “doing” a level 4 with us was like: follow us in and pick up all “his” loot, oh and suck up the bounties, what a team player huh?

    Sadly Mr Braedin is no longer with TNC, and we didn’t even have to boot him. I just ask the other corp member to stop paying the subscription fees. LOL

    Believe me when i say smack talking was the LEAST of his problems

    \o/ now i’m famous

    Braedin, what a dick

    LOL @ “stop paying the subscription fees”, that’s funny.

    Glad to hear you guys see the humor!

    Why thank you :) We do our best

    Just reading through your site, you’ve had some hilarious adventures. I don’t allow pirating or stealing in my corp because it goes against some of our industrial and political goals, but I still love a good pirate story full of smack and crying, lol

    And that old rust bucket of yours is really a quality ship, I’ll have to look into getting one myself :)

    Anyway, keep up the fight for cleaner space ways, and keep posting your stories
