[quote] On 10-11-2009 10:37, Armand wrote: The druids is actually one of the more interesting puzzles to solve without help because there are decent hints available within the game, and the hints are set up to lead into one another (i.e. you solve one bit and you get the next hint). [quote]What you are saying is that it legal for someone to snoop on you (The means and the command to do so are provided by the game - so it must be) but if you are the victim of snooping you have a duty to try and put a stop to it and modify your play, in case you inadvertently share information. This is pure Halism. I come back to my main point. Where is your authority that this is cheating? You may not like it when you are snooped upon, and want to do something about it but that is personal. And I always flee on purpose. Though most of the time I seem to leave it too late.[/quote] I did not say that being snooped was cheating, I said that deliberately giving points away to another player is cheating, and I was drawing an analogy between the two. Fleeing to someone is a response rather than an action, and it is normally fine. But if you deliberately arrange with another player to transfer all your points to him with fleeing, then that is cheating. This is covered by the looby rule. My analogy comes from the fact that being snooped is also not an explicit action, but if abused in a similar way to fleeing it can result in information sharing which although not against the "rules", is undesirable (and in practice enforced by wizzes as a rule) as we discussed earlier in the thread. E.g. I think we'd both agree that it wouldn't be acceptable to tell a newbie to snoop you while you do the mausoleum puzzles. I don't think there's much of a line between this, and knowingly "allowing" the same newbie to snoop you typing in the answers, without specifically asking him in advance to do so. It would be similar to being in the tearoom with two other people, one of whom is an advanced player, and openly discussing game secrets with the latter. Yes, you haven't deliberately shared info with the third listener, but the end result is the same. [quote]And I always flee on purpose.[/quote] I was talking about deliberate transfer of points, not fleeing in a normal combat situation.
