@DenWorld Of Warcraft is not EVE. Further, some of the "meta-gaming" you are referring to could be considered harassment or cyber-stalking in most U.S. courts. Would the jerk in this letter see jail time? Probably not but he could face a hefty fine, court costs, and community service.Will he ever be prosecuted? Doubtful, his actions would have to be brought to the attention of a district attorney and a protection order would have to be filed in his county. This would require Blizzard's intervention to provide evidence and relevant personal information to make the case. The company that provides the guild website in question would also likely need to be involved, so in the end jerk face is protected by relative anonymity and complexity.However if he escalates his behavior, or has ever used a cell phone to harass guild members I could very easily see him being sent up shit creek, his only paddle will be whatever crappy defense lawyer he can manage to find.And one last thing, we're not talking about EVE.
