ROFLMAO. Ok... um... I do not play WTS, nor do I work for this mod team... but basically: 1. Getting banned for cheating on a server that you do not own does not, in fact, constitute &quot;libel&quot;- it´s a situation that´s no different than having an ISP bounce your email because your computer´s full of viruses. It <i>does </i> mean that you´ve violated the EULA (y´know, the &quot;terms and conditions&quot; ) of the server, as well as Microsoft- or at least... IONCROSS thinks so. Get a clue- cheaters who get banned from a server aren´t having their rights violated... legally-speaking, they´re having their rights terminated, because they didn´t act in accordance with the rules of the server. So... take a deep breath and calm down, k? If you´re that confused about your rights and responsibilities concerning playing online... your claims to not know anything about cheating are, if anything, more credible <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> 2. IONCROSS frequently behaves this way after large server updates, because players are carrying equipment that´s been changed by the new mod. This is often the cause of a &quot;player wipe&quot;, and hopefully Crabtree will get things straightened out right away. I would humbly suggest... that for now, you just create a new character, and try not to have too many hard feelings about this. Crabtree´s mod is extensive enough that this last major update may require a player wipe, although he´s been pretty careful about such things in the past.

<font size=1 face="trebuchet ms"><BLOCKQUOTE><hr size=1 noshade>A point of law I should make clear to you, just in passing, is that the law regarding libelling someone in public is very serious. I have checked this with several people I know who work in the legal field <hr size=1 noshade></BLOCKQUOTE></font><font face=´trebuchet ms, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica´ size=2> Well, I haven´t laughed that hard for a week or so... If you really believe that, get speaking to a real lawyer... spreading a good joke is great <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I suggest contacting the server admin directly, as this forum is not the place for antics over bannings (including discussions of admins decisions etc). They don´t have to unban you even if you didn´t cheat - so being polite and nice is alot better than throwing around <b>that </b> kind of threat!

Dear ROFLMAO, I love that acronym; whenever I see it I always imagine someone rolling around on the floor with their butt cheeks in their hand and laughing in despair... Anyway ROFLMAO thanks for the response. And let me point I an not furious, I am ´not a little annoyed´ about this situation. Also, I did send an email to the email contact on crabtrees website, but had it returned for some reason...I have no idea why,,,and as for logging on under a different name, well I can´t even get into the server because my I.P has been banned. Now, legal issues: when I was trying to find out why I had been banned, I had a friend of mine, who was lawyer, with me at the time. When she saw that I had been banned ´for using a ship cheat´ and therefore classed as cheater she said in that awful bloody lawyer tone of voice ´I could sue them for saying that´. Which made me laugh and question how serious she was. Very, or so it seems. In her words, ´we would be making legal history´. So I asked a couple of people about it and two others said yes and two said no. Reread what a wrote. I mentioned to the effect some people would not take it and would be annoyed enough to seek legal council, yeah, seriously they would, which is one reason why I posted the email. They may not have won a case but they would have stirred up lots of trouble...yes, there are people who would do it for that reason alone. Anyway, for me it was a frustrating experience not being able to even get into the server and change my name, which is also the reason I made that posting. So ROFLMAO thanks again for the posting; legal history will not be made, and we can all rest assured that you will be ready, fingers on keyboard, with a word to the wise... See you in cyberspace, Bob aka TheShrike!

HAHA I love this stuff! I guess your lawyer friend is a law student, and not fully qualified - even slightly. Always law students who talk out their asses the most.
