Sadly, like many, Thorne presumes I am either able to read minds or have
the time, energy and inclination to watch everything, everyone and
everywhere 24/7. This is not so, folks. Things must be reported using
the BUG command else you're relying on somebody else chancing to do it,
or some God randomly happening to notice the problem.
Thorne: if to your knowledge the \"list is long\" then how ironic your own should
be absolutely empty. Not a single bug. Despite this omission a post
of fairly ill-mannered tone... ah well. It won't effect whether the
bug you vaguely describe in your post is taken seriously. It will be.
Hopefully somebody else will deign to provide a little more info,
particularly if the loss was large enough to be significant to the
People presume too much if they figure exploiters aren't punished. It
tends to be the case, though, that there's a fine line between exploit
and smart-ability use and those pushing the envelope tend to whine
less when inevitably punished for going too far. Conversely, I spy the
beginnings of a martyr complex twixt the lines of Thorne's post. And
I appreciate this gets ruined if bugs are reported and/or abilities
are learned to such a point, the doings of Zooka and Achelous (in this
instance) become explicable. Cuz then the counters or mistakes-made
would become clear... and then a whole world of awful obligation
rears its ugly head. Ignorance is not only bliss, it's absolution!
For those who're interested: check out the updated HELP BUGS. It's not
long, it's not complicated. Put your bugs in categories, ensure they're
looked at faster. Label important or SERIOUS and it'll be noted by
the whole pantheon (no doubt) and likely fixed by me Real Quick. The
question of reimbursement for such a bug exploit doesn't even need
to be asked. It should be taken as a given: yes, cheat-theft comms
would have to be returned.
