    Bot characters are dropping books around Luna advertising their illegal web site. If you see a book, please drop it in the trash. If you spot the bot report him. The GM will ban the account if a player will report the offense.

    The sad part is that in talking to players in Luna about this, I find them defending the dupers, and saying everyone cheats. I do not and no one I know cheats. Why would one cheat in a game?

    The original idea of this game was that players would police themselves. That's why so many of us still love Felluca. If I saw the bot there he would be dead. Trammies get off your butts and try to save this game if you care about it. If you don't try, you have no right to complain about cheaters, or to complain when EA puts a game full of cheaters to sleep.

    I'm not going to participate in an argument about this. If you just think this through you will know I am correct. Let's take our game back from the cheaters.

    Please take heed to which books you trash tho. Some different guilds do book drops advertising auction lists and such. I'd hate to see someone go thru the trouble of making these books only to have someone misidentify them as the books you are talking about

    My Guild drops books for auctions and what we have found is the same bot that drops books advertsing their web site will copy their advertising stuff in it.

    Now we have to use the red root thingy to make the books perma. Just a hastle, now we have to grow the red root things (Forget the name).

    I am very careful never to trash a book advertising an ingame event or guild. Only those placed by a particular duping website (gold at 95 cents per million indeed).

    I am also very proud of the folks who play LS. Players have begun to report these guys and pick up their books. Three times a day I check Luna and for the last week I have found no books.:thumbsup: LS. What a great community you guys are!
