Eternal-ZI. Once upon a time, the banning of players was left to the moderation staff and Admin. These days, it's a fairly common occurrence for a player to be removed eternally from the game, for any number of nonsensical reasons, and sometimes for no reason at all. This removal from the game applies regardless of what name they play as. Alliances have and continue to use such underhanded tactics as IP stalking on IRC and forums to fish out former players under new names, regardless of whether they have committed new offenses or not. It is time for us, as players, to stand up and speak out against this travesty that is not only shrinking our player base, but removing creative and active players from the game.
At this point, all are welcome and encouraged to sign this petition. Please refrain from posting dissenting views, as this is not a place for discussion, this is solely a petition for the removal of eternal-ZI. If you believe strongly in this cause, you may and are encouraged to speak out to your friends, alliance mates, alliance government, and allies, asking them to sign as well. If you would like to put a specific reason you are against e-ZI, so long as it is appropriate and does not break any rules on language or anything else, you are also welcome to do so.
Thank you very much, and may the ability to decide who plays CN once more reside in the hands of Admin and his moderation staff, not other players and alliances.
Quick note: some signatories have been carried over from the original OWF thread.
