I've just come back from mooching around the forums as I do from time to time, and was somewhat perturbed to come across a number of threads and posts regarding one surprising subject: Alexurt has been banned.
Yes, the very lovely Simmer who gifted me Barnacle Bay, and who has kindly gifted so many others in the past, has been banned and her page seems to have been deleted, along with kerby414- another very generous Simmer. And the reason for this? 'Abuse of gifting.'
I fucking kid you not- that's the reason they've been given so far- that they gifted too much. I seriously can't even begin to comprehend just what the fuck EA were thinking. I mean, put aside the fact that they seem to be incomprehensible mean bastards, but from a monetary sense why would they do this? By these two Simmers being generous they are giving EA money, which is exactly what they want right? The only reason I can think of for them doing this is if Alexurt and kerby were using fraudulent Simpoint cards, but as I've seen a picture Alexurt posted of all the Simpoint cards she's bought then I know that this just isn't true.
EA... Fuck, I don't even know what to say about them right now. Absolute pieces of scum.
If you want to read more about this massive error you can do so on this Facebook page. You can show your support there, but I will just suggest you be careful regarding how you act on the forums- 'Bring Soandso Back' campaigns are never looked on favourably by the shithouses that are SimGurus.
And hey, if you ever want anything from The Store- go to MATY for fucks sake. I'd only give EA more money, aside from buying the games themselves, if I could shove it down their cold, stupid throats all personal like.
Wow... Just can't fucking believe it.
