"Screenshot or it didn't happen!"... best advice!

Screenshots at best should only be used for self-reference. GMs don't need them and won't even bother to look at them, and law enforcement likely wouldn't either, because the images could be far too easily doctored. So don't rely on screenshots as evidence, because they really just aren't. However, as a reference or for time-stamps, they're invaluable.

@shotiechan... Don't underestimate the value of a screenshot to law enforcement! Yes, that could be a doctored screenie... but so could your notes be completely made up. Plus, if it gets really serious, you could hand over your hard drive... complete with full file information on those SS files.Most of what law enforcement does is collect "he-says-she-says" statements, any evidence presented, then present the complaint to a district attorney to see if they think it's worth pursuing. A case is almost never simple and based 100% on verifiable fact. That's why we have the jury system :)

you're correct about the he says / she says part however the crucial element to success here and it has been mentioned a few times is time stamps.with time stamps blizzard employees can find the conversation and then it goes beyond he says / she says and into the realm of credible evidence.
