Good Evening,
   
     I'll tell you a little story about my day.  So I come home and log on to my mud (freemud.mine.nu:5000) And one of my builders says to me "Hey someone is advertising on our forums".  Hearing that I quickly bring up the forums and realize, Sarapis (Owner of Achea) has completly spammed the h*ll out of my forum advertising saying "Our mud totally owns this one etc.".

    What I do not understand is why a pbase of 100+ average online must spam out muds with about 5-10 average.  You would think they have enough, no?

    Saying that, I suggest that all small muds ban Sarapis from your mud or forum if you like to keep your pbase.  

    And to Sarapis and the Achaea admin, This could all have been avoided if you didn't try to ban me right away when I logged onto Achea to talk to the admin about this little problem.

    This is all I must say.

Excuse my spelling on Achaea.

Donn't be a schmuck. We average over 300 players online and had 800+ registrations in the last 24 hours. I checked your forums and they had -4- registered players. Do you seriously think I would waste my time advertising to FOUR people?

Plus, I would -never- use "l33t" speak in an ad. We mute people for using it in Achaea for gods sake, as it is a plague upon the internet (though a handy way of identifying idiots who are probably going to need a banning). I also know for a fact that whoever is masquerading as me did not register with any of my email addy's, all of which are @ironrealms.com or @achaea.com.

You got deleted for repeatedly spamming the newbie channel going on about your forums. The newbie channel is there to help newbies, not address your concerns that have nothing to do with learning to play Achaea. If you go to our websites (ironrealms.com or achaea.com) you will find the appropriate contact info there.

In any case, twasn't me, and there's nothing stopping someone from using the name Sarapis wherever they want. It's the name of an ancient God, like Zeus. I don't own it.

What's the matter Jayl, you get too many people complaining about your non-stop spam on mudconnector, and figure you'll spam here about your mud until the heat dies down?

You pull the same manner of "advertising" there by complaining about someone else giving you a hard time, and it also probably never happened, or you did it yourself just so you could pretend it was someone else.

I wouldn't doubt it for a moment that any posts written by someone named Serapis on your forum were written by you, with a fake name just so you could falsely accuse Logos.

Lay off the crack dood. No one wants to play your mud, and no amount of spam is going to change that. In fact, it's just gonna encourage people to look somewhere else.

To Jazeula:
Kado666 on mudconnector.com is NOT me, it is a friend of mine who works on my mud who has a thing out for bogy.  I do not have a login on mudconnector.com so I was never spamming there. And why would I want to falsely accuse some mud I've never even played on. Seriously, I am just trying to run a decent mud for my mudfriends to play on. How about you don't make accusations without backup

To: the_logos

Let me start off by saying, I just signed the forum two days ago, thought you would've checked that. And however this 'person' got that url is beyond me.  And I said on the "Newbie" channel maybe twice cause I wasn't getting any attention from the imms that "I need to speak to the creator of the mud"...Then I get disconnected and banned. Hmm....

And it was under YOUR name and YOUR mud that completly spammed my forums, I dunno if it was you or not but it was someone from your mud who was spamming my forum.  Normally I wouldn't even bother using THIS forum, but it was the only way to alert the public about the advertising.

What would make you think I'd check? I don't care about your forums and I've never heard of your mud (no offence).

You said it more than twice, and you did it rudely. Just because some rank newbie wants to speak to me doesn't really mean anything. If it was that easy, I'd never actually get anything done. And again, the newbie channel is for newbies to ask questions about Achaea, and that's it.

And yet again again, contact emails are easy to find on our websites.

I thought I was clear: Sarapis is the name of an ancient God in the real world, like Zeus. It is not "my" name. My name is Matt Mihaly by the way. I don't need or care to disguise my identity.

Having read the advert, I'd rather the person hadn't posted it as I don't like being associated with l33t speak, but at the end of the day, it's really not my problem.

I've wasted enough time on this now. Next time, try confirming before you fly off the handle.

I don't see how you could beleive it was Sarapis. Achaea and the rest of the Iron Realms muds are the biggest and most popular muds there are, and if an Immortal on one of those games were to act like that they would be removed. I don't see why Sarapis would be any different. And anyway, you don't just walk into a game and demand to see the owner, especially a game like that.

Thanks Kenjar, though just for accuracy's sake I'll mention that our muds aren't the biggest out there. Dragonrealms and Gemstone IV are both commercial and larger than us, for instance.
