Seriously many of us dislike the destructive changes Turbine has been haphazardly stumbling from lately; one to the next, like a drunk guy in a 7-11 knocking over the candy rack, only to bounce over and fall into the potato chips.
Please don't try to tie your exploit vacation into "things that are wrong with DDO" to curry sympathy from non-fanboys and transparently seek approval of those who don't like how poorly the Dev's have been steering the ship. You're trying to coat tail, and it's rather sad.
Oh and stop pretending that if they had only warned you ahead of time everything would be okay. You were giggling about only getting a 2 week vacation, many of you were bragging about it you know where, now oppsie maybe another couple weeks wipes the smug self congratulatory smile off your face.
Indeed many of you are probably nervous... if they extended your vacation by 2 weeks that means you were possibly one of the more egregious exploiters they mentioned. Possibly they are still considering perma bans for the worst, maybe they are paying attention to IP's and correlating static IP's with Vacationed accounts that suddenly pop up on a fresh new account specifically to mess themselves on the forum in front of everyone. So instead of trying to self justify, perhaps just sit around nervously for another couple weeks and see if you don't get perma'd.
