And now an important message from Jester's evil twin, Garth. The opinions of Garth are not the opinions of Jester (unless they are).
In a world that has moved long past corrupt police, politicians, and court houses to pedophile priests and parents that murder their own children because those children interfere with the real need to party, it's so hard to find a paragon of true evil any more. Some of you may ask, "Garth, you true Pillar of Evil, to whom do you look up to? Who inspires you?"
And I would answer: the hard-working men and women of the Goonswarm Intelligence Agency, and indeed, anyone who infiltrates an organization for fun and profit.
Of course, I have never read a GIA manual on how to infiltrate organizations, but I can guess how it starts. You appear to have useful skills and knowledge. You impress those that hire you with these skills, your laid-back manner and good humor, and your willingness to relocate to some distant area. Once there, you take on the really unsexy jobs that nobody else wants to tackle. Naive idiots like Jester might say that you should be measured by those that hire you on results, not effort, but that's just fucking stupid. Instead, strive to be compared to how things looked before you got there: i.e., make sure you're measured in comparison to a time when nothing was done with this thankless work.
Over time, you expand your influence and you're put in charge of larger efforts. Test your influence by getting your new corp to spend a lot of ISK on some hardware that you don't really intend to do anything with. Just see if they'll buy the things you ask them to buy; you can later say that you don't have the resources to put this hardware to any actual use. As your responsibilities grow, you'll also need to recruit some evil minions. It's not necessary to refer to your evil minions as a Task Force or give them a cool four-letter acronym, but you get extra style points if you do.
Make sure that the really important stuff all flows through your hands, though! If someone makes obvious suggestions about how this responsibility should be spread across a larger effort with more people, you should definitely let them know that such things do not scale well. If people start to tell you about rumors that you're skimming off the top, you should tell them not to rely too much on anecdotal evidence. Transparency is also obviously to be avoided whenever possible. Be sure to make it clear that releasing raw data without context would make the data meaningless.
And if, God forbid, someone actually challenges you to provide results, or shows you that things that are being accomplished in other corps but not in yours, you should absolutely curb-stomp that person for their temerity. Brook no opposition to the way you want to do things. Buzz-words and bullshit are always your best weapons, of course, but don't be afraid to bully those that suspect your true nature into submission if need be.
You spies should remember this: your best measure of success is that those you're spying on have no indication that anything untoward is happening.
This kind of evil truly inspires me. It's a pity that nobody's ever applied these tactics in real life. Imagine if you could use these tactics to make real life money without providing any real results to show for it... say, by getting yourself hired by CCP!
The preceding has been an important message from Jester's evil twin, Garth. The management apologizes to any and all whom Garth may have offended. He should really apply Preparation H to his mouth, given what comes out of it.
