Who is Swifty? And why do you all care about him/her so much?

I don't care, but for the record.

Swifty Hosts gathering and offers prize. Too many people come and crash server.

Swifty brings group to another Server, Guild Member Zybak says "Let's crash it" Swifty laughs and starts offering another prize give away helping encourage people to flood an area.

Server Crashes

Repeat a third time. Another Server Crashes.

A Bllizz GM contacts Swifty who suddenly goes "Don't crash the server, guys, be cool."

Swifty gets banned.

The next day Swifty makes a youtube video with some badly edited things to make it look like he was telling people not to crash the server (really baddly edited, I'm amazed so few people notice the glithces).

People throw a fit.

And here we are.

He got banned for a stupid reason.

Ruinous should get banned if that's the case. How the hell are zombie raids supposed to work, troll raids, if a person ends up getting banned for it?

Boohoo. Bull**** reason. I don't even care much about swifty but the reason for the ban was silly. Unreasonable. No warning. Their servers go down all the time, they should ban the employees.

Crashing One server is an accident.

Crashing a second server is deliberate

Crashing a third server is malicious.

Here's a simple little analogy.

You start a big gathering for whatever reason. A Crime happens. The group then without your personal direction, decides to repeat the crime a couple more times. Do you?

A: Go along with the group, laughing at the situation and helping make it worse?

B: Not go because you don't want to be involved?

C: Report the actual instigator to proper authorities?

D: Try to stop it yourself?

Three of those four would not have resulted in a Ban.


Edit: As a side note? The arguement of "Such and such did it too and didn't get in trouble." Is not a valid point. Just because someone else got away with breaking a law doesn't mean it's now legal or that you can do it too.

Okay, if that's the case then a ban is a ban. But permanently banned for crashing server is a harsh punishment.

But my point still stands. What's with Ruinous and them crashing OUR server with their massive floods and horrible PvP skills in our city and not getting any consequences for it? Not to mention, they bring an extra three for every one they got.

Not his fault Blizzard can't afford better servers.
