    I don't think he was unbanned. He just created a new account no?
    I don't think they ban IP's but even if they did couldn't you just download and use an IP blocker to get a new account in? :(

    Yeah who is Saul?
    John Saul the author? Because if you're talking about him you're right that dude's mind is terrifying.

    Its most likely the account that is banned not the IP. He can always make another account.

    You have private and public IP's in a sense. A computer directly connected to the internet will always have the same IP. If you have a wireless router and use any wireless device now days ( includes xbox) on your home network you will get assigned a different IP. Strange but true people in your neighborhood that has the same provider may have the same private IP. That's just the gist of it not going all technical and in depth into it.

    IP blockers are useless. Its just a cheap firewall called by another name and your provider actually has a better firewall :). It just blocks block access to certain IP addresses ( more like a parental site blocker), or you can block other IP addresses from accessing your computer.

    He has the same player ID so it is the same account. It just makes me sad that UO is in such a desperate position.

    Saul is the sphynx of the trash talk world. We all know a sphynx is duped, but yet its still allowed on vendors....

    Saul was in Atlantic help chat last night, painting himself as the victim and Norrington as a "bully" for calling him out. The whole thing was so silly I got distracted reading the chat and let myself get killed in the abyss. I have to say, one of the reasons I keep playing UO is watching this kind of drama play out, sorry to admit it, and Saul is a master at it. There was thread on this a couple days ago, but I can't find the link.

    Hm, I thought it was a topic worth debating, whether somebody should be banned or not for outrageous speech, but maybe it went over the line, I don't remember every post. I would have deleted posts that were went too far rather than the whole thread.

    Click ignore... personally, I refuse to allow myself to even be bothered by someone like this. Any time reacting to people like this is a waste. They are nothing more than distractions and therefore are best ignored.... and yet here I am discussing him... ::sigh::

    By definition, Rico, I'd say you're probably right. Maybe it was Saul himself that started the rumor he was perma banned.

    Certainly could have been. Then again, I was perma banned a couple of times from Stratics (details must remain unsaid) but I'm back from both bannings. Maybe the one that banned him got over-ruled by another?

    Unless Saul comes here and gives a report on why he had a vacation, we'll probably never know...la
