Git off mah lawn!
If, If's and But's was Candies and Nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas.
Well, if we're going to be hyperbolic:
You know what doesn't affect me? Littering. So who cares about that? Lets just let everyone litter because it doesn't personally impact my life/well being.
Not serious enough? Okay okay, how about this option:
You know what doesn't affect me? The ivory trade. **** elephants, who cares if they die out? It doesn't affect me, so lets not worry about it.
Still too mellow? How about one more; just a little darker.
You know what doesn't affect me? When neighbours husband beats his wife. That has no affect on me. So lets not get worked up about it. It doesn't affect me, so who cares?
This is the natural progression of your argument brought to a, rather dark, extreme. Something having an impact on YOU is NOT a required to know whether is it is right or wrong or if it shouldn't come with punishments.
If you want to cheat, go nuts. Just remember, that getting caught comes with punishments. If you can't handle those punishments, don't cheat. It's a very basic concept: If you can't handle the heat, don't stand in the fire. You or anyone else won't get any sympathy from me because you inaccurately assessed your own risk threshold.
I'm amazed at some of the responses I'm reading. Some of you seriously need to grow up.
@OP glad your hellish day is over and good luck with the future

Go right ahead It's a public forum. As soon as I press "post" it's not mine anymore, anywayThank you for a beautiful example of a slippery slope fallacy. Mind if I cite you for a class discussion?
The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)
Yep well I guess better late than never eh? A year and a half late almost 2 years for the ED's twists......2-3 years late taking a hard stance with duping bugs? But then they are a company that then turns around then sells exploitable products in the damn store, their integrity on this issue is down the tubes and has been for years. Not excusing exploiters but bagging turbine, I don't like crim's ........but if crime is rampant because of lazy/corrupt police and justice system I would be annoyed/angry at them almost maybe just as much as the criminals themselves.

Uhm, it has no relevance to the game. And the game is real for Turbine - the company continues or fails b/c of its actions. Duping exploits circumvent the economic architecture that Turbine has created, serving to reduce the company's income by reducing or changing people's paid playing behavior. Suddenly they have those ingredients they need for that one weapon/armor/whatever they were farming for and don't need to put in the time or pay some kind of monetization to overcome some kind of barrier.
So I suppose you have offered the point of view from a player - yes, this is fiction, entertainment, not as important as real life drama. What you're missing is the point of view from the company that exists because of the game it created.
Hmmmm I wonder why now though? I mean exploits are all good if they ever put them up for sale in the store eh? nudge, nudge, wink, wink? Its like the police saying these drugs are illegal!!!! btw want to buy those drugs?
Oh police are finally arresting people for crimes!!! Hurray!!!! oh wait.....its only certain crimes against *their* people..........ok.
Its not for maintaining the *integrity* of the game its because the latest duping could hurt store sales. Its all about the short term profits, ED twists been able to be used in heroic been up so long many people thought it was wai.........did that hurt store sales? No so it became a feature for a long time, even though there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Only when the caterwauling reach maximum effect oh........its finally getting fixed.
Look at the past history...and theres been more exploits and some even more serious lately. So I got every reason to be disillusioned.....but maybe they are finally turning over a new leaf.............leopards and spots and all that.

Hitting your hand with a hammer because your foot hurts doesn't take away the pain in your foot. Just saying.
The hammer on hand thing actually can work, if the "gating" theory of pain is to be believed. Still not a great idea, though.
I think ppl need to ignore that part and show a little compassion for a guy who had a nightmare evening and came here looking to get it off his chest and maybe find a little understanding
And hes got mine....what a nightmare. I cant imagine...
