    In all of that time I never once seen anyone capable of doing 40k get smacked with an AFK penalty.
    Who said anything about getting an AFK penalty? I never get AFK penalties while AFK. :P AFK penalties are for people who actually try, if you simply go AFK, you'll do more damage and not get an AFK penalty. Which, you know, is just an example of why the AFK penalty doesn't work either, but that's another story. The AFK community largely regards the AFK penalty as a joke. Yes, there is such a community. The stories are damn hilarious, you really get to observe how truly horrid people actually are. And learn a new way to build ships: How to get maxdeeps from zero budget and zero APM.
    Short version: he's an exploiter talking about exploit things. When he talks about how much he can do while "AFK" he's talking about using scripts to play the game for him.

      There is an in-game function to cause your ship to constantly follow another player's ship while auto-firing weapons and using a script to spam skills. For obvious reasons these scripts don't work if everyone is using them.

      It's also why certain enemies get raged on. They're designed to punish lazy players like him.

[/quote]He, the player, may be AFK and not doing anything but his character IS. Which, for dubious reasons, he is conflating with being one of those people who literally does nothing.
