Don't post again until you can learn to read, thank you.
not sure why you are trying to bait me into an argument so keep that crap to yourself.

anyway, thats exactly the point though, the filter is the way it is, so you either get yourself banned for hitting the limit or you use the ts chat and bypass it altogether. one thing is for sure, if i wanted an unrestricted chat sto isnt the place for it right now and i doubt that will change.

If we ever get our accounts back we should all create a fleet called "Banned of Brothers" and Bran, as the community manager, this said fleet should have tier 5 holdings on everything (Starbase and Embassy) as an apology

Yeah, I'm dreaming right... I'll just be happy to get my account back.

Again with the reading comprehension fail. I'll make it plain.

THE GUY. WAS TALKING. ABOUT CARPENTRY.

How in the sam hill is that anywhere close to hitting a "limit"? Now if he were discussing pornography or a recent drug deal, then I might agree with you, but he wasn't. He wasn't discussing anything even remotely related to the reason he was banned. It isn't about unrestricted chat, it's about being able to talk about anything at all anymore without risking the filter deciding you were talking about some gold sellers website.

The point he and everyone else is making is that the filter is broken, and rather than sitting back and saying "oh well, I'll chat elsewhere" we are trying to bring it to Cryptics attention and get them to realise how utterly broken and idiotic the current filter implementation is.

Sig by my better half.

Guys, please don't turn my thread into a flame fest. I'm just trying to get help and get my account bank to enjoy the game.

I hope I'm not in eternal limbo like that other guy who was linked in this thread.

PWE_BranFlakes twitter has not been active since the 25th of May so no hopes of it being resolved today unfortunately.

It's a holiday weekend in the US, so Bran went to be with his family. At least that's what I can gather from his tweets. I wouldn't expect anything until tomorrow at the earliest.

You can only rely on technology to solve social problems when the technology doesn't suck.

The MO is to say "too bad, so sad" and toss it into a megathread where it's buried, not read, and not dealt with. I guess that's where things go that nobody cares about.

It's part of why I stopped spending cash on STO (except for the Legacy Pack, which I regret).

Yes we do but it does not apply. What you are referring to is this:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Cryptic/PWE is not the federal government.



And I agree with everyone that a spam banning feature that doesn't have a human being monitoring/reviewing permanent bans before they go into effect to prevent the gross miscarriages of "justice" we are witnessing is a colossally stupid idea that never should have been implemented.

I was on the receiving end of that tell, and i can confirm that this had nothing to do with gold sellers or anything like that. It's really f'ed up.

Auto-bans like that has no place at all in today's technology, and the spamming problem could have been solved in a much more elegant way. The problem is that Cryptic does not put customer's satisfaction above all, and this will probably lead to their down fall.

They must not forget that we are the ones who pay their salaries, and when we're fed up with Cryptics BS we will take our money somewhere else.
