Apparently Stratics mods cannot read. I asked a simple question and hoped for a simple answer. If I have been banned for 24/hr (regardless of the reason), is that ban hard and fast at a 24/hr interval? Or do I have to wait until there is some server reset flag (i.e. wait until the next server up). The answer to that question would directly affect my next course of action. While my responses to my original post (now locked) may have been esoteric, I thought it provoked a genuine response from a variety of players. I was non-confrontational. I even applauded other player opinions, even if I was a bit glib at times. In the end, I had timely and new information on my ongoing issue. I needed a quick response for it. If Kelmo had bothered to check his/her clock, s/he would have realized that EA Customer Support is now closed and I have very few options to get an answer. Instead, I was cut off from an ongoing discussion based on a whim. Thank you petty Stratics mod for completely misinterpreting my request for information and forcing an active line of discourse to be closed.
