A player was banned for life from wotmud.org yesterday, the first and only time that we have ever resorted to this.
This action was taken because he betrayed the trust that was given him once upon a time as an immortal. First of all, he took it upon himself to publish everything he knew with regards to the statistics of equipment and mobs (which isn't exactly the end of the earth as these things change all the time anyway so his list is slightly useless). But this could spoil some of your fun. Secondly, he used an immortal command to find out and let people know the mortal characters played by the 104s and 105s at the time (Lords and Implementers, the people that pay for and keep the game running). He actually made mistakes because he didn't realise that this command is also recorded when we change passphrases for people but that's another issue. But crucially, He did so out of jealousy, revenge and malice, because we refused his demands to make him into an immortal again (he had been fired previously for cheating).
Anyone who knows anything about mudding in general, character separation and the fact that these characters were just characters like any others, ie have had a lot of time & work spent on them as players (yes, we like to actually enjoy he game too! will realise that the latter was a truly horrible thing to do. It was coldly calculated to harm the people personally, and it sets them up for their computers to be hacked into. It was designed to undo the fun of the game for the very people that make it possible for all of you to play here in the first place. It was nasty, and crossed a line of basic mudding decency. It wasn't as if there was a good reason for it, it was just a case of 'here you go, this is who they are, I'm going to spoil 10 people's playing pleasure in the game because I can and I think it's 'k00l' to do so'.
Therefore this person is banned for life, and the staff of this mud would like to convey our warning to all other wheel-of-time themed mud administrators to be wary of this person, should he choose to go and play or work there - this guy is bad for your mud and bad for mudding in general. Typically he plays from *.telia.com or *.kebne.se
