News The First:

Larkonis Trassler is caught trying to do insider trading based on information he recieved as part of the Council of Stellar Management and:
CCP, who is monitoring us closely, almost instantly discovered his actions and has banned his accounts.
Holy crap.

I can understand the allure of making the big buck based on moving quickly on information not widely known to the public. I can understand the temptation of having the opportunity placed in front of me and knowing its wrong but still wanting to do it. If there are billions to be made, it can be quite strong.

But I would like to think I would have the integrity to NOT do it. I guess I won't know until I am faced with the choice.

Larkonis, you reap what you sow. Hopefully you take that lesson with you going forward.


  1. Mynxee should replace him. ^^

  2. He did it for a mere 2.5 billion isk too. If it'd been hundreds I could see the temptation (but I still wouldn't have done it) but for 2.5 billion? Meh.

  3. @magson - You know, for some people 2.5billion is a whole lot of ISK.

  4. * le sigh * I've said my piece on the forums.
