Can something be done about Coyote / Coyotee? In the best case it's spoiling the game by auto-shouting when others join the game. In the worst case it's someone multi-lining to see when others are joining the game.

Ideal would be banning accounts that have connected from the same IP. I don't know how hard that is to do.

Please no.

IP address != person

Remember, entire university campuses / workplaces can share IP addresses, and with dynamically allocated IP addresses you can share your IP with people all across the country.

Such IT policies can also lead to DOS attacks.

I'm sure things like that would be considered before banning any IP.

How goes anyways Hal? It's been a while.

Not bad.

Whenever I've popped in to the game it's been empty so it's good to see a bit of activity, on the forums at least.
