However I did urge caution and expressed the need for corroboration. Corroboration came when reading Viktor?s welcome page but only with regard to the question of poaching. From the start poaching seemed unlikely to me because there was no motive. It is easy to sit in the Tearoom and pretend to be a Novice and ask the right questions to get unguarded answers, then quote those answers out of context. This is called acting as an Agent Provocateur and if IRL such conduct is proven against those prosecuting in a court case, their evidence, quite rightly, is disregarded. We still do not know who fbi is but if any of us find ourselves in a similar situation we should bear in mind Bambi?s mother?s maxim: ?If you cannot say something nice about someone, it is better to say nothing at all?. In the matter of bullying, it is made clear in the MUDspeake Dictionary, where they are clearly defined, that Looby-looing and Multi-Lining are illegal. This is the only place (as far as I can tell) where any rules of the game are laid down in writing. Anybody who breaks these rules can have no complaint about what happens to him (or her) afterwards. I would question the Wizdom of a Wiz seeking the aid of a mortal in catching a rule breaker. He ought to be able to do that on his own or perhaps with the help of another Wiz. Bullying is difficult to define. There is a huge grey area and what one person may see as bullying another would regard as robust play. This is open to interpretation and we rely on Wizzes to sort it out as they see it. Three Warlocks attacking a single swordsman may be regarded as bullying; but what about three swordsmen attacking one Warlock? I am no expert, but frankly I cannot believe anyone can create a mobile that tells players apart and then change its values of Stam etc. as the result of knowing the name of the player it comes across. Maybe Richard can but then he wouldn?t. We all know Armand well. What has been said about him is completely out of character. And I need say no more on that score. There has obviously been a vendetta going on over there and I am saddened that it should have been pursued with such seriousness and determination. I am also saddened that its effects have been felt over here by us all. EDIT: Sorry to go on so long. I see several posts have been added since I started to write this.
