Unfortunately, the player you talk about comes from a site that
many of our players use, there are lots of genuine newbies from there
as well as lots of genuine players.
It is interesting that you have brought this up after our recent discussion in
this forum about newborn helping and so on. Previously I had banned this site
so that no new characters could be created from it; a decision that hurts Avalon
commercially but helpsmaintain the quality of the environment. I unbanned the site
just last week, and the same guy is back again already. The site is now banned again
as far as creating novices goes.
This is just one example of the types of problem we were discussing. In particular
bad examples of novice abuse (bad being defined as obviously experienced novices
systematically ruining the experience of real novices) then you should notify a
deity to deal with it. If none about try a WISH as there may be invisible deities
online. If that fails then ring the Avalon support number and report it.
As you say, in most cases these people get bored and go away after a while, but
unfortunately there are some really small minded people out there, and quite often
they are looking for the attention that behaving badly brings them. Deities are used
to dealing with this and can usually defuse a situation quite quickly.
