    Here is my take and most of you know it is a hard line one if you know me.

    I think EA is Finlay doing the right thing as far as banning and I have still to see a credible person that was wrongly banned that did not own up (bye there own admissions) they made a mistake against the roc (even if the roc wasn't as enforced as hard as it is now).

    What I know is this.

    I know for a fact the search engine that has all the item lists and prices in Luna on every shard is done through a script. It is against the roc and its about damn time they started banning people for promoting scripts.

    The Whispering Radio issue to me is more iffy but if there using ads from other sites that make there living off of UO then they more likely then not are using cheats dupes or scripts to some degree or another to achieve the pixels they are selling to live off of in rl and bye default WWR is supporting and promoting them bye using them as advertisers and are violating the ROC bye doing so.

    I think what is happening is backlash and anger bye the ones that did cheat are exploiting this situation bye paging on others that are not aware the sites there promoting are against the ROC (ignorance is not an excuse though and the banning are clearly justified) and the original cheaters are doing this clearly to try and create hysteria and try to get so many people banned that the rules are changed and they get there own accounts back. I find it odd that almost all of the people originally banned have low posts counts and are not known bye the greater amount of people on there own shards as being upstanding players. It makes them to me personally to make them lack credibility.

    The banning that are now happening are being done out of pure spite bye this that clearly don't care about anything or anyone but themselves and are just now trying to ruin others game play because they got caught and are mad they got caught. I know people will argue about the game being to slow and not fair and everyone else is doing it arguments but its simple.

    This is the way the rules are right now and whatever you did to get banned was against the roc and suck it up and move on and stop trying to change the rules or hurt others because you think you're justified and you're a crusader that is going to change how uo is ran or what is legal. EA is not going to lose customers flippantly. There not stupid and if they are banning an account you can be sure something was done that was against the rules.

    I spend way too much time doing things honestly for others to get the same results but never seeing them do the same amount of footwork I or my guild does. I am also tired of them lieing about it. So I am thrilled that EA is taking this hard line.

    I never said anything to imply that my post was anything more then my opinion.

    I wish you would worry more about the content of posts youre reading rather then youre post count. Maybe if you ever posted anything over two sentences my opinion of youre posts would be differnt then the one I have currently which is that youre trolling and that youre posts should be deleted from my thread.

    *puts troll suit back on*

    Your post was informative and thought provoking. I liked its structure and its well thought out information. It makes great points and does a community service by warning players about the hidden dangers of going to Websites.

    Im glad your here for the community and that you want to make sure everyone is safe. What would Legends be with out you and your endless labor of watching our backs. You are a credit to our shard and Im glad I get the privilege to read your posts.

    But if I may interject some of my, all to awesome trollness into the thread, since thats what you claim I always do, I would like to offer you some advice, or criticism, how ever you want to look at it. This quote is what got me..

    I get tired of seeing how your always the good guy getting beat. How you and Fal are the only ones who do hard, honest work. That no one can be nearly as good as yourself and be as succesful. There are a ton of guilds that do great work and do it honestly.

    Some people do get banned innocently, Damia is proof. I just get tired of seeing Plucky Duck on a soap box thinking his duck pellets dont stink. I wouldnt call it a troll, if someone has a different opinion of you. I tried to apologize to you and make amends, but you ignored me. I cant help it if your to narrow minded not to be able to move on.

    The issue with youre appology was youre lack of personal responsibilty to the main rift and reason why I cut off ties with you was never admited on youre part publicly and til it is to me youre not taking responsibilty and thus to me makes youre apology insencre since you do not want to lose face.

    But I havent trolled any of youre threads since then or said anything to anyone since you did make youre version of an apoology.
