So the recruitment channel gets moderated by GM Horse yesterday due to all the protests. The moment he unblocks it his words are "The next person to post anything unrelated to recruitment gets a 3 day ban" So, the channel says quiet for a good minute. I figure "Heck i'll break the ice and post a recruitment line"

My main is Ataxio, The CEO of Santouka Ramen, EvE Onlines first and only Ramen Establishment. Apparently GM Horses does not like ramen, nor does he have the time to investigate what players are saying. My next words are "So, who would like to make some ramen?" Simply clicking on my name would reveal at least 2 different plain as day indications that what was said, was an actual recruitment pitch. Instead, 3 seconds go by and GM Horse casually declares "And we have a winner" - banned for 3 days.

Now, I understand the GMs anger and frustration. I do not understand why I should be a public example or lose 3 days simply for recruiting in the recruitment channel. Because my methods are different, and unorthodox I pay the price. Because I choose not to use vanilla recruit macros, I get banned?

I do indeed have an active petition, but know full well it will not be addressed in 3 days time. Seems to me though that CCPs long arm of the law has gotten a bit too ban happy.


You are the weakest link, g'bye.

Meh, this threads a resounding success, blocked or not. I got what I wanted, which was to bounce my thoughts off the community. Can def wait 3 days as I hardly ever even play EvE anymore.

Can't really escalate a petition anymore then submitting it either. So not much else I can do then voice my opinion publicly.

Can't even cancel your sub while banned. Apparently its their method of punishing you IRL by forcing you to pay even though you don't want to. My account rolled over yesterday. I did not want this to happen. Not even sure if this is covered by the EULA. All players should have immediate access to their account information at all times.


File for charge back with your credit card / paypal company.

You provoked him and got exactly what you deserved.

Now you come on here all righteously indignant?

Should be forum banned as well, imo.

OP - sounds like BS and pretty reactionary. I guess you can just take satisfaction in folks response to Incarna putting a lot of pressure on the members of CCP.

How is asking for top quality ramen chefs a provocation?

After his warning I immediately ceased all protest comments and pitched a recruitment line. It is not my fault a GM can't fathom that.

Point being, if CCP can't take things with a grain of salt I'm not sure I belong here anymore.

And an update, because you see me here now, It means I've been freed.

However I did report GM Horses behavior. I find it very unprofessional for someone of his rank and duty.

Cause it doesn't sound like a recruitment line, but more like you being a smartasss.

Just because you turn what you write into a link for recruitment doesn't mean it's in accordance to the rules of the chat channel.

He didn't say the "next post that links to recruitment", he said the next post, period. You thought you were smart enough to play the smartass, and got burned. The typical smartass attitude.

And if you can't take your ban with a grain of salt, maybe you don't belong here.
