Now Keir, wasn't it you who killed characters for OOC reasons? Who called players at 3am, threatening them? Killed Ismay for something he did IC that you did not like OOC?
That would mean you should be banned too.
Now Keir, wasn't it you who killed characters for OOC reasons?
a) There's a difference between doing IC harm for OOC reasons, and doing OOC harm for IC reasons. One is poor roleplay, the other is illegal both by law, and the rules of the sim
b) We have a handy feature on the Eidola website called "Piratey Book of the Dead" which lists who we've killed, there are currently 6 Imperials, 3 thieves, Myorzo, Raptor Pirates and 3 Bounty Hunters. I think there was plenty of IC reason for each of those deaths, even if solely based on the fact they're in enemy factions.
Who called players at 3am, threatening them?
Ummm...what the hell? Only players I've got phone numbers for are Bruce (My co-leader) and Joe Monso (Who is in the US Navy, therefore frequently mia from the Combine, but likes to be kept in the loop)...oh, and Bayley I suppose, but since I've seen her naked, I think I'm allowed that phone number. Honestly, what the hell?
Killed Ismay for something he did IC that you did not like OOC?
I killed Ismay because he was an Imperial Moff that I had an opportunity to kill. I'm not sure what Combine you've been playing, please join the same one as the rest of us.
That would mean you should be banned too
Oh dear, a StormSec employee is getting banned for threatening an Eidola member, so now Gabriella Storm has to come try to get an Eidola member banned....on absolutely no evidence of any wrongdoing.
If you haven't learned in the five years I've been here, I play this game by the rules and have never stepped outside them. Accusations otherwise are really just met with laughter both by myself, and those who might have the power to ban for the infractions if they *had* been commit.
Honestly, you're making a fool of yourself just by contesting this, stop now while you can still bow out with some semblance of dignity.

Typically it helps when one actually supports baseless accusations - feel free to consult logs/old ezboards/whatnot, and if Keir actually *did* break the rules, you're more than welcome to start your own thread to complain about him.
In the meantime, I don't see that there's any harm in keeping this thread on topic. If a player breaks the rules, it's irrelevant as to who submitted the complaint. I witnessed Rylith saying this myself, as did 20 or so others, so there isn't any doubt as to what happened. He was angry about a theft and reacted very inappropriately. This should not be condoned, and a temp ban sounds fitting to me.
excuse me but since this is about me, don't I get to speak for myself? I mean what kind of trial is this, where I can't speak for myself? I didn't know I could get banned for this type of thing, I don't read the spy rules, or the ban rules. I don't even have any viruses, I was just trying to scare him into giving me back my credits. I have moved on. All I know is that you can get banned for multi acounts. Please, don't ban me perminatly, I love this game. I didn't know honestly, give me a chance please.

"This is a public forum, if you remained silent for 6 days it’s your fault only."
yes and no, not everyone actually checks this part of the board. If you don't have a question, aren't bored and wouldn't know the answer to some questions you probably wouldn't come read this forum.
Rylith, they were talking about temporarily banning you not permanently. Though I'm not sure how long a temporary ban is. You should have either read the rules or used common sense in realising that threatening someone ooc is probably frowned upon here like most other games.
I would try apologizing and stating that you would never do this, never meant to do this (this being attack someone's comp with a virus) and will never threaten someone like that(ooc) again.
I never said that myself not replying was anyones fault. I know its a public forum. And I know there are rules and I should be punished. But being banned forever is a bit extreme I think, for someone who did't know all the rules. I am sorry, I really am. I would never do something intentionaly if I knew I would get banned forever because of it. I will apoligize to baron, even though I know it won't do any good. I doubt he will accept my apology, for what I did would piss anyone off really badly. I have extreme anger management problems, and they get me into alot of trouble. Please accept my apology, I will never do such things again. I am normally a good player. I just let my anger get to me. Please, only ban me temporaly.
-I didn't know I could get banned for this type of thing, I don't read the spy rules, or the ban rules.
Well I'd start off by suggesting you read the rules of any game, before you play ;) Ignorance isn't an excuse
-I don't even have any viruses
It's okay, nobody really thought you were. As a general rule, the people who threaten to hack, are the same people who couldn't hack their way out of a paperbag :Þ
Anyways, I agree that perm-bans are far too serious especially for things like this that *are* stupid, but somewhat forgiveable since they were in the heat of the moment, said without thinking.
Just don't threaten people OOC in the future, try to keep a handle on your temper and remember, above all else, SWC is a game, so if it's affecting your RL emotions or temperment, just log off for a couple hours, go grab a doughnut, watch TV, read a book, call your wife to tell her you love her, whatever ;)
I think the final consensus then is just to let it go as a "Warning" not to do this again, since obviously the next time is going to be more than twice as serious, even if it's somebody else you're threatening OOC. Other than that, consider yourself absolved and this issue closed :)
