short version: developers disable mining/astrosurvey agents before the next patch in order to fix them.

medium version: I've been playing for a month now and it did strike me strange that mining missions could be done the "jumpgate" way by mining beforehand and then completing a lot of missions real fast before the semi-random mission selection gave me a courier mission. (and then i'd do that one for variety)

long version (techie sp33k): due to the fact alot of veterans were exploiting the instamissions in order to get megacash (payout was lots more than what the ore/minerals went for on market) plus implant gifts from lvl3 agents -- they'd do this by rejecting any mission that wasn't mining. (and by choosing mining agent they'd get more)
    i hear there was a mission delay in the past, but not currently...i think they should put in a 10 minute delay, maybe 15 delay PLUS 24 delay if you accept and then reject it.



ahhaah...gods you should see the whining about how CCP wrecked those poor miner carriers that supported the industry and made flowers bloom everywhere.
