So I`ve been away from NOTD for about a month now and this is due to exams that I have coming up and a recent thesis presentation (FYI I`m a 4th year Mechanical Engineering Student) to my department that I had to prepare for. Therefore, I have to take some time off from NOTD. Anyways, I recently read on the forums that we now have a ban system in place. Personally, I think its great and awesome because I`ve been advocating for this for quite a long time and many of the veterans here can vouch for my stance against them. However, one thing I`m very disappointed in is the minimum length of ban time that can possibly be enacted being one week and Ability`s stance on it. Personally, I think a one week ban is quite pathetic and pretty much a slap on the wrist for these hackers. EVERYDAY, I see the hacker list growing and growing and by saying that most likely these hackers will be only at least given one week ban is a slap to not only my face, but the community`s face in general. No offense to ability and to the wardens, but bans for hacking should be at least 6 months to permanent. Ability is saying that even the worse criminals can reform, which I will never believe because what about Charles Manson, Pol Pot, ect. You telling me that these a**holes can reform give me a freaking break. Hackers should already know that hacking in any game is wrong. I don`t care theres no F***ing excuse in the world for it. Quite frankly its very disappointing and a slap to the face of the many players of this community that spend their time taking screen shots of hackers, looking up their credentials and proving that their a hacker only to have them potentially face a one week ban. Where`s the justice and reward for these players that are trying to keep the game clean and rid the community of the filth?
