Title: Stealing Server Names
Post by: CptLima on July 03, 2018, 06:15:53 pm
Tonight I noticed a couple of people intentionally created a server with the identical name to another popular server and tried to pass it off as their own. However, while the REAL server is well-moderated, the fake one isn't... this presents an issue for the community, because people (especially new players) who expect a certain atmosphere in a server they are familiar with are being tricked into going to the wrong one and getting a very different experience.

Can anything be done about this? This is a small community as it is, and the last thing GE:S needs is immature server operators playing petty games like impersonating popular servers to troll.

If this goes on, I believe we can blacklist it.

The "Best of Bond" server. It's apparently some childish feud a couple of disgruntled people have with Shemp, which is ridiculous, considering how much Shemp does to promote and support the community. No civility or respect.
