    The changes were made to prevent total griefing, and i rather see it as it is now but with tweaks to make it worthwhile.

    Going back to how it was shouldnt be an option, i hope.

    Once upon a time, you would have the items that you stole on your body if you got guardwhacked, meaning you just had an alt or an friend standing next to you, being able to loot your corpse.

    Stealing is an act of aggression against another player, period. And like any other act of aggression towards another player, if it takes place in a guard zone - then the guards should be able to be called to deal with it.
    And every steal, no matter how high your stealing is, should flag you grey because of that act of aggression! If you run a thief, then you need to be ready to run...
