For the past week or so I've had the displeasure of having to hear about and/or deal with drama over astral over-linking. These people are often wrongly accused and still threatened, or griefed, or otherwise harassed because players have chosen to be overzealous in their policing of the nodes.
I think it is fostering an unhealthy environment where it will drive several well-meaning players away and still leave behind the offenders. Is that what people want? Make the game even smaller than it has been? It is causing combat, sure, but it's not a healthy combat situation. It mirrors that of why we have Avenger in the first place.
People need to consider that this is a game, first and foremost. Try not to take it so seriously with accusations. I thought once to report with adding a LastLink for astral nodes to help catch or deter the true offenders, but I was told this idea was shot down, even though we have something like LastHarvest. If this is true, why?
Anyway, this is me saying, ye Enforcers of Astral Nodes need to tone it down a notch. Keep your zealotry levels to motes, please.
