Another cheat

Koralas, mcournyer and Solumon all belonged to the same person. He apparently was curious to see how he would be caught :twisted:

Koralas and mcournyer have been closed. Solumon remains but the player is on a final warning.

Why do you allow cheaters to remain?

Are they on double secret probation?

There is a subtle difference in my mind between cheaters and the common 'exploit the system' internet culture. Some people will use illegal copies of software, download bootleg copies of movies or music, use game hacks etc as a matter of course and do not see that as cheating anyone, just taking advantage of the system. So on a first offence, sometimes the offender will admit to their crimes and realize that Playdip is not a place for that sort of behaviour. In that situation, it is better for this fairly specialized hobby if these players remain to become active members of the community who follow the rules. But to be clear, IF the players are allowed a second chance (and not all are, we do ban people straight off but it depends on the crime and the circumstances) that is their one and only 'life'. Any further incidents and they are gone.

I have to say that instinctively I would ban anyone on a first offence, but I have to admit that I think wiser heads than mine may have the right approach here, because in the main the offending players do indeed go in to play fairly from then on, whichis good for the hobby and the site.
