[eveonline.com | news from EVE] Regarding AFK Complex Farming
Posted 09 August 2012 - 11:05 AM
It has come to our attention recently that there are pilots in New Eden engaging in AFK Complex farming. Specific examples of this include such activities as warping into a particular room in a complex, dropping sentry drones, then going to do your laundry or perhaps watch a 24 hour Lazytown marathon. While this activity does not necessitate the use of a 3rd party program in order to carry it out you ARE generating income in an automated fashion while sleeping which is not being present playing the game. As such our automated systems will continue to detect and institute administrative actions for this activity. We do not find this to be acceptable gameplay.
All accounts which were tagged prior to this notification will be given the benefit of the doubt and a one-time “amnesty”, removing the offending marks from the account. Going forward any administrative actions will remain in place. Game Design will also be looking at changing our complex systems so that this is no longer possible in the near future.
Thank you for your time and attention,

They should target afk cloaky ships first by giving cloaks a maximum cycle time of one hour (without user intervention) before it decloaks itself.

They mean the static complexes in highsec the 2/10 ones where people sit in the final room all day and farm deadspace modules.
Running a mission/anom semi afk with drones isn't gonna cause a problem. Only people that are logged in and doing the same thing for a LONG time are gonna get a spanked botty...
If you check the actual dev blog they have edited in an explanation...
