I've spent about half of my life in Texas. I've lived in Houston, Dallas, and Austin. I've also lived in Silicon Valley, Seattle, and Southern California.

Every conversation about living in Texas I've had with a West Coaster:

"Oh really, have you ever been there?"

They murder people not just for informing on them, but for having the audacity of taking charity hand outs, farm equipment, and the like. They want to completely cut off the civilian populace from any positive contact with the Americans, and they're willing to murder anyone who crosses the line - all so they can show that the Americans cannot protect them.

You can now undock with PLEX. The player didn't buy them with real money - he was the direction of an alliance and was using the alliance's pocketbooks for a "get rich quick" market speculation.

Of course, undocking with an active wardec going on with hostiles present in the local system and no defenses are chance at getting out...
