I explained the situation, if you think I'm being vindictive you're being a fool.

I didn't know he was cheating until someone else brought it up a few days ago. I knew he had multiple ID's, I didn't know he was in violation of the rules. Lots of people have multiple IDs, billyg was the first someone else pointed out was cheating. If you know of anyone else I'll submit a ticket on them as well.
This is BS... you're the fool if you think I or anyone else with half a brain believes this. It has been a KNOWN fact that billyg has  had multiple ID's in the same world for a LONG time. You're telling me you're in the same world with him...close enough to be competing against him for recruits yet in all this time you had no clue? You tell me who's the fool here.... hint: it's surely not me. 

I am definitely not calling this guy a hero (he's appointed himself with the designation)... and I also wouldn't go as far to say billy is a martyr but what happened to him or the way it happened to him I should say is truly ridiculous. And further more if I know of someone, why is it I should tell you? Who are you? You want to have a snitch parade, do your own leg work... smh. 
I believe stine too ... I don't usually GO LOOK at what teams a guy with multiple IDs has ... I just ASSUME that they are following the rules of no 2 teams within 1000 miles, or that someone would find them.

I would be glad, if everyone posts all their IDs, to check and see who else is not following the rules.

The rules are there for a reason and damn it, people should follow them.

Why have a rule and not follow it?

Stop all the ******* whining and follow the ******* rules.

Wow, how did I not see/respond to this sooner.

Eff you.  If it's so damned important to you, you go find the "cheaters".  You asking people to post their IDs only heightens the witch hunt aspect of this, as only, what, maybe 20% of HDers post on the boards here...gtfo outta here man...if you're so up in arms about "cheaters", get your own damn K9 unit and get after it...man...

I don't trust guys like you to police the game, because you seem to not have evaluated the rule yourself, whether it's good, bad, etc...you just see it as a rule and that it should be enforced, without listening at all to what open-minded, big picture seeing people have said about the rule.  THE MILE LIMIT DOESN'T PREVENT THE CHEATING AT ALL.

Why don't we all just follow the rules that we think are good?  That's the American Way!

I pay to play the game, not police it.  If WIS is unwilling or unable to police its own game(s), that's not my problem.  If some of you want to play Captain Planet and save the world, then fine, but don't TELL other people to do your research for you....find your little plastic sheriff badges, and get after it.

I think colonels point, although he may not be stating it in the best way, is not that people should be allowed to cheat, only that the rule and enforcement don't make sense.   BillyG has 3 teams in Tark, and the problem we are now arguing over is that SIUE and South carolina are about 770 miles apart.  Yes that is a violation, but is it going to make him cheat or give him a bigger advantage than SIUE and USC, which are more than 1000 miles apart and therefore legal?? 

Billy is being forced out of South Carolina, but lets say Miami opens up next season and he applies for that job and gets it.  Now he still has 3 teams in Tark, but Miami and SIUE are more than 1000 miles, so no rules violation and therfore no issue??  But have we really accomplished anything?   He's just as likely to cheat (although no one is really accusing him of that) and he gains just as much of an advantage, but he is within the rules.   That just goes to show the rule is stupid. 

And for the record, in a perfect world, I would be in favor of 1 team per person per world.  But I also would rather see humans on my schedule than SIMS, so I have no desire to make anyone drop any team they have.

I'll admit I'm going hard in this thread here, but that's been the tone, so I think I'm just matching a punch for a punch.  I could have said what I said more (or less) eloquently I suppose...however you want to look at it.

Again I just resent the guys that are hardcore, shout at the mountaintops against "cheating" (stinenavy and hughesjr) that say that they want stuff done, but they aren't willing to put in ANY work to pursue other cheaters.  Stine said in this thread or another that if I or anyone else find any "cheaters" that I should "let him know and he'll report them"...lol you serious?  And then there's hughesjr, wanting me to blindly follow a dumb rule just because it's there while disregarding the fact that only ONE person in violation was punished due to a vindictive witch hunt and the fact that a ruling was made way too quickly with absolutely NO DISCUSSION from the powers that be at WIS about punishment guidelines/actions going forth.  That's just wrong, and I don't know of anyone who is in violation of the "rules" currently, but if I did know of someone, I wouldn't turn my worst enemy in because there is no "due process" in these matters, it just seems like it's GALLOWS OR BUST for some of you here.

If you knowingly......i dont care if think the rule is stupid.....break the rules that 'could give you an unfair advantage' then you are cheating others whether you take advantage of that unfair advantage or not.....you CHOSE to take a short cut ...YOU CHOSE to break rules that others dont

No one is condoning cheating or wanton rule breaking, but I think it is fair to examine the purpose of the rule and if it serves that purpose.  Billy has 3 teams in tark, the only issue seems to be that 2 of them are 770 miles apart, and not 1000.  So if he moves his South Carolina team into Florida, suddenly everyone is cool with him having 3 teams??  Seems unlikely. 

And everyone here yelling rules are rules and must be followed at all costs, I'm sure none of you had a drink before you were 21, or broke the speed limit or any other rule that was inconvenient at the time.
