    In high security space can be difficult.

    That's how you also entice them to attack you.  ;)

    And then you can shoot back?

    Can be annoying but in this game where you spend more time out mining then you do actually playing i dont see much wrong with macro mining.

    just kill em and steal loot if you must, easy targets.

    "That's how you also entice them to attack you" and  "If they are putting minerals in a jet can".

    If they are doing these things they are miners not macros, and the people stealing from them are thieves and pirates. In this never-ending battle I have had my ore taken twice, but I have destroyed the ships of 8 so called pilots. I actually had one clown trying to ransom the can back to me in local as I flew back into the belt in a Domi and popped his cruiser.....priceless!

    Indeed, the best way to spot a macro miner is to lock onto them...  if they lock onto you back and try firing then concorde will pop them and you can loot and salvage their wreck

    Most macro's turn off warning messages...  not to mention because they shoot first they also take negative standing aswell

    trust me, shoot them and they will stop. Or they will make you rich. Although they may employ child labor instead of macros. Hmmm would that be the same thing or worse? Eh screw the moral delema just shoot them.
