We are very sorry that you opted to violate our terms of service and commit unauthorized access to our machines over a three-year-long period in violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. If you had sought permission to use a company account following your absolute ban from using our services, we might well have been able to reach an accomodation, which surely would have been of continued benefit to yourself, your business, your customers, and RPGnet readers generally. You have made that no longer possible.
In short it appears that the problems present on RPGnet are actually to be found throughout the entire company.
It also appears that people at this company cannot read or comprehend simple concepts, another issue.
Their terms of service were not violated, my personal account was banned, not the company account. There was no ‘unauthorised access’ – a rather scaremongering term, and it certainly doesn’t qualify as fraud or abuse, especially since it wasn’t hidden. Permission was tacit over that period.
At this point it appears that, essentially, the entire company top to bottom are a bunch of cunts and I suggest that you no longer give them your business. Incidentally I think this is also more confirmation of the dangers of the positive feedback loop that I mentioned in the video.
