So I was off in deep spess doing a derelict ship mission and I was getting harassed by this pirate group. I applied a firm back hand to their front side and sent them running. They then went dark and then buzzed around keeping me from scaving. I figured they fancied a second go so I popped it into sustained burn and chased them down.

Before I engaged I opened up the comm link to affirm my offender was indeed the same pirate that harassed me before (I want my vengeance to be verified). It's the same pirate and they're faction icon was indeed of the pirate. I send my second in command to give them a proper thrashing once more and they ran off.  The independent faction then went from neutral 55 to hostile at -55 rep for me in an instant.

I know if I were Heg space and I was dark that alone would grounds for them to throw the book at me let alone if I was pirate.

I'm a very "I am the law" kind of player so nothing tickles my pickle more than laying the smack down on pirates. If they get a instapass for going dark it's really gonna ruin my vindictive play style.

Pretty sure this is a confirmed bug that will be fixed in .8.1
