Just to play devil's advocate for a moment, it's one thing when Joe Blow posts on the forums to complain about something; it's another thing when someone who actually has clout does so. And repeatedly. Very few people (Hi, mom?) are going to care if I make a scathing post on the forums, but someone who is well-known within the community and has a following can stir up feelings of illwill. As further evidenced by the hunter community's ire with Megatf's ban.Though I have to agree: my understanding was that forums restrictions are typically handled different than in-game bannings. I know of a few people who are in-game, yet don't have access to the forums due to past indiscretions and innappropriate antics. I heard of one individual who was supposedly banned from the game as a result of his conduct on the forums, but it was only after trying to circumvent a forums banning repeatedly.And knowing that individual's reputation, I wouldn't be surprised if he did something in-game that coincided with his attempts.
