    I will say that nothing of mine on Origin is missing, and I doubt that I do not have at least a couple duped items. I have bought and/or traded for many different things over the years.

    I heard if we all go a month without mentioning dupes, exploits, or cheats, we all receive ridable dragons!

    I'd love a giant ridable chicken. Oh a goblin would almost fit on a regular one

    I never understand why they didn't let items that were duped go poof when someone tried to place it on a vendor instead of putting it back in the backpack.

    Yeah, a lot of people would lose items they weren't aware were duped, but then again, it'd make more people use vendors to buy/sell/trade for safe items.

    Except, as has been said in several places, it seems the 'dupe detection code' has bugs and faults (hard to believe, but some UO code is buggy and erratic. Imagine that...).

    If they decided it was worth the loss of some paying customers who have legitimate items that are caught by that bug, and the loss of some paying customers who see what they thought were genuine items they paid for simply vanish overnight, then maybe they would go ahead with an automated deletion. My suspicion is that would be a huge mistake when we're already seeing low and falling player numbers, and simply not worthwhile.

    What's in the game is in the game, for better or worse - stopping it being traded is sensible, and the results for 'innocent' people are inconvenient but not game-breaking. If they actually stop future duping, and/or act FAST to delete things when it is discovered, that is probably enough.

    I can't see it happening, but if it does I'll treasure my industrial thickness earplugs. Unless those too are duped, in which case I'm stuffed.

    Also, I can donate some ridable Scottish sheep for the cause. Though I take no responsibility for injuries sustained while trying to saddle up a blackface tup :D

    Amazing what rumours some people will start to try to induce panic.
