Maybe we can have nice things after all.

The players behind the recent vandalising of the less-than-a-week-old EVE Online monument have been caught, leading seven EVE Online accounts and one DUST 514 account to be permanently banned. Another player who was only “indirectly involved” has been banned for six months.
“Firstly, I’ll say that the fact that the monument was vandalized is an insult to the entire community, not just to the individual who’s name was directly targeted by the vandalism,” explained EVE’s Community Manager. “Thankfully with the assistance of a number of members of the community, including some of those who were involved with the incident and other members of their own alliance, we’ve been able to make headway in identifying those responsible.”
CCP are opting to keep the identities of the culprits secret, saying that “While the community has been justifiably outraged and a number of people have requested that we release the ingame identities of those who carried out the act, we feel that this would be contrary to our privacy policies.”
“As such we will deal with this incident in line with our current policies, and the identities of those responsible will remain confidential.”
