Is the GMs! If they'd do their jobs it'd be one thing, but page for ANYTHING anymore and you get a freakin canned message! Okay let me explain what precipitated this tirade. I was given a bunch of Fountain deeds a month or so ago. I recently found out these things were being dupped. I was concerned that these might be dupes since the person that gave them to me was someone I didn't know. I paged a GM to have a look at them. ALWAYS before GMs would check on a item to see if it "legit". Well after waiting a FREAKIN HOUR I get (you guessed it) a canned response. That read: <blockquote><hr> GM tells Cold Steel: Greetings, The item(s) you are inquring about are not supported by Game Masters at this time. These item(s) however are subject to change, and are not offically deemed legal by the development team. The development team may at anytime remove or alter the item(s) or any item(s) in game without prior warning to the community if deemed necessary. Please know that ownership of the item(s) is at your own risk. Thank you for your support and cooperation. [/ QUOTE ] Okay how could GM "Bot" even have scanned them? They were in a chest in my castle, and I have a TON of chests which would have meant the GM would have had to scan my WHOLE account! I seriously DOUBT my whole account was scanned because it would take too long. Wouldn't it have been simpler and faster to talk to me and check said items? Support or "the lack there of" like this will allow cheaters, dupers, scripters and even greifers to continue unchecked since players have no recourse. Meanwhile I'm still left to wonder about the deeds in question. What do we do toss everything in the trash barrel for fear it might be dupped? I wouldn't know a dupped item from a pooped item! Once again the honest players are treated no better than something my dog did on the front lawn! The UO way: Punish the innocent reward the cheaters! *SIGH* Why do I bother? Jirel Edit: My grammar goes in the toilet when I'm angry!
