If there's one thing I dislike more than Crying Carebears, it's Elitist Scumbags. You know the ones... They think they're better than you because of their position, status or skills, and they'll go out of their way to remind you of it.
It's not just limited to the University though. They're all around us. They're just... everywhere! Those people who think they're the Gods' gift to the races.
If you fly with a Scumbag, you're supporting them. You're encouraging them. If you give them positions of responsibility, you're doing the same thing. But you're also lowering morale amongst the non-Scumbag members of your corp or alliance.
No one wants to fly with a Scumbag (unless they're a Scumbag too... we all know those Scumbags need to stick together), but if you force or encourage people to fly with Scumbags, you're slowly driving your pilots away.
And if you're one of those who just doesn't like the Scumbag you have to fly with, then just stop flying with them. If the corp or alliance or University has too many Scumbags, then go somewhere else.
Here's a tip for the new players:
The best University is in 0.0 space. Suck it up, gather your belongings, and head out to the Open University of Celestial Hardship (O.U.C.H.)* and you'll learn more there than you could ever possibly imagine.
I've already helped a few people out to 0.0 and they've joined O.U.C.H. and haven't looked back. You could too.
Contact me if you're interested.
* Just in case you're wondering, O.U.C.H. is not a real university. It's more like the 'School of Hard Knocks', but O.U.C.H. sounds better than S.H.K....
