Man... After reading all of the comments, I see a big split yet again, where one side is people who care about their community and love the new way to efficiently and easily do what they've been doing for years.And then there's the other side of people who apparentally got a forced name change from 'doodoolicker' and are all pissy about it to anyone who in any way wants to keep the streets clean.All of this 'U HAV NO RITE 2 SELF-POLICE DA GAME!!!!111!11@2' is BS.Blizzard gave us a set of rules, and an in-game interface with which to alert them of infractions of that set of rules. We are NOT self-policing by kicking people and making up new rules. But we ARE self-policing in the idea that police are just people that go out and find the 'bad guys' and bring them to 'The Man's' attention. We are alerting the MAKERS of the game AND the rules of people intentionally breaking the rules BLIZZ made, and then THEY are taking w/e action they feel neccessary.If you get a name change, YOU are the only person to blame. Ban? All you. Perma-ban? Yep, still all you.It's on the site, it's in the game, it's shoved in your face every patch, update, and install/xpac...yep, IT'S THE ToS/EULA! It's that thing you scroll down to the bottom of each time, never even bothering to glance at, mashing ACCEPT as hard as you can to get back to your character named 'ifucurmom.'These RPers, reporters, readers of the ToS/EULA, and users of Blizzards in game reporting UI (until this addon, at least for names) are not the bad guys. Yes, some people get trigger happy and report any and everything. But MOST of us are just trying to keep our server clean of the filth that thinks they're better than the rules.And for the love of all that is holy STOP USING THE 'lawl i pay mai 15 a mnth lawllawlican do netin i wat'NO. A) We ALL pay 15 bucks a month. Everyone. So now it's moot. Gone. Stop using it.B) We are only RENTING from Blizz. We own nothing in the game. NOTHING. And the terms of this 'pay to play' service are in the ToS/EULA that no one reads.You can NOT do anything you want. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if your best friend's mom's sister's second cousin's ex husband's friend of a friend knows a guy who knows a guy who knows someone who works at Blizz.You STILL can NOT do anything you want. We ALL have to adhere to those rules.You can say anything you want. You still have to adhere to them. It doesn't matter if you think it's stupid. I think paying for my house is stupid, I still have to do it. Otherwise I have NO house.I think not being able to blow red lights and go 100 MPH is stupid, but if I do it, I'll get anything from a fine to jail time.So. Do you get it now? No one cares what you think about them. They're rules. And unless you start accepting them and following them, you're going to get reported, and if you keep doing it, eventually you'll get banned.You can try and say that the people reporting are the real 'bad guys' all you want. But we're the ones having a good time and you're the ones pissing yourselves because you can't spam trade as 'pstforcyborz' because you're banned. This addon isn't a new hax that will auto-perma-ban anyone I see who I don't like. It's a way to make it easier to alert Blizzard of the rule-breakers whether on an RP realm or not.I thank the makers of this addon and pray Blizz starts seeing that RP realms are being abused.
