This is just simply ridiculous. Might as well throw out the punishment tables completely and just make a mockery of bannings. Yes, people have been unbanned from perma-ban before, but not after a month of committing the offence.
This sets a dangerous precedent with bannings, and player behaviour. Siarca has been known to have a sting of incidents in this game, and has been banned previously to my recollection, yet when he committs one of the most serious offences in SWC, and doing so in a well planned, thorough, and obviously illegal (insofar as SWC rules), he gets a minor slap on the wrist and allowed to carry on as normal. Appears there wasn't even any secondary punishments after being given yet a further chance. It appears as though there hasn't been so much as an obfuscated attempt to protect the other players of SWC, who actually follow the rules and contribute to the game; rather some fools have decided to have pit on some pathetic little person.
Well I'm sorry, but I'm a player too and I deserve to be able to play this game without players like Siarca breaking the rules whenever they feel like it and then playing dumb and oh so sorry to get themselves unbanned a month later. Apparently though, the thousands of other players who follow the rules and are victims of the actions of these people who break the rules aren't worthy of that level of respect and protection; somehow our needs and enjoyment are trumped by an ASim's soft-spot for people who don't fit in and don't respect the rules or other players.
It's not like was a fuzzy or stupid rule, or there wasn't enough evidence against the person, or the case was handled poorly and with bias. This is simply some people in the Administration reversing a reasonable and precedent backed ban just because they personally haven't given this person a chance before. Well sorry, but siarca's had chances before, and he's flown in the face of them and used them up. Just because you haven't given him a chance in the past doesn't mean you should be overturning legitimate past rulings and bans because you think you can lead people to redemption.
