well thats the way i read about it on here somewhere.
Yes, that's correct. The resist bonuses don't actually diminish, in the sense that they linearly add to your survival time against that damage type. They look like diminishing returns when calculated into an absorption percentage number, which is what is displayed in your ship's stats readout.
