In resposne to my "Save Jita | Take Hisec Back" initiative, i've noticed people who while definitely pro-carebear/anti-griefer are completely apathetic to the event itself and Goonswarm's Incursion upon hisec. Their view is that it won't impact them because they don't go to Jita except to buy stuff, some of them even look forward to it because they plan on bringing a salvager and cashing in on all the sweet wrecks provided by Goonswarm.
I can't SMH hard enough to this attitude and overall stupidity. These are the people that think that Hulkageddon is a cool idea that doesn't really effect them and brush it off by saying they'll do something else, but then bitch about mineral prices a week into the event. I heard one person say specifically they planned on bringing a Noctis to the event so they could salvage all the Goonswarm wrecks. Derp, let me know how that goes.
I wonder what these people are like in a real world setting. I would imagine them to be the Jewish restaurant owner who refuses to evacuate Poland in the face of an incoming Nazi invasion. He fancies himself a savvy entrepreneur and absentmindedly waves off the warnings, telling his detractors that this is a great business opportunity and that all those hungry German soldiers will need to eat somewhere!
I don't think you can define the term "outsmarting yourself" any further than these guys already have. As much as I hope these guys die on the 28th, I think that even if they get killed their stupidity won't allow them to register just where they went wrong.
After all, minerals are free as long as you mine them right?
