I was travelling for the weekend but always checking my iGoogle page for updates on Kirith's corporation. Sunday morning I got the good news: I was in m3 corp. Elated I logged in Sunday night to see a populated corp chat channel and an alliance chat channel and I immediately went to work reading the corp and alliance mails.
Halfway through the corp mails I saw one warning of hostiles in the area threatening harm to m3 pilots for harbouring me. FINEG has come to town.
Insert long suffering sigh of frustration here. I immediately contacted the director online to explain the situation and why these guys were coming around. I felt guilty that I had not explained it during the application and interview process but really, where do you insert the fact that this corp may or may not come after me depending on their mood? They did ignore me all summer and they have not bothered any other Strife leadership that went on to other corporations.
Of course, this could be part of their plan: try and force me to be isolated in my own corp or in a public corp and drive me to pay their extortion fee; perhaps they see me as a weak link since I was the one that opened negotiations with them last spring. Well, I have no intention of giving them a red cent and I get the feeling that the m3 directorship will not be intimidated by these guys.
In the meantime, I need to get some channels and forum access set up and get into the swing of things.
