have you noticed the commonality of the unjust bannings?

    It seems every person who claimed unjust banning had tons of gold.

    not one person has said Hey I can't put 2 GPs together and I got banned.

    Maybe EA is just getting rid of all the super rich?

    I wouldn't say that they are specifically targeting the uber-rich, but that it's the uber rish that are affected as an effect of the fact that the items duped were the uber-rich level items.

    The effect does not create the cause.

    If that's the case, since I have about 700k between all my characters, I should be one of the last people in UO to be banned. Condolences for being poor? :p

    I can only remember 3 or 4 times in the past 5 years EA has unjustly banned someone, and only roughly 3 or 4 of these bans seem like they could be accidental. I've laughed at a few names that have posted here, knowing full well they've dealt with dupers extensively. A few of them have me perplexed as the rest of you though.

    QFT. While there may have been some innocent people caught up in this, I'm guessing the majority of bannings (including the many that haven't been posted here) were of people who got rich by either duping or trading in duped items.
