Recently there’s been a number of cases plaguing help chat: A person will create a hypernet offer, then use a large number of disposable charactersor accounts to spamvertise their offers. The idea here is that by using alts, it shields their primary character from reprimand of violating help chat rules, and circumvents the ability for individual players to simply block a character to stop seeing their spam.
Since CCP never discusses actions taken against people, I’m not even sure if this is an actionable rule violation that should be reported or not. Is it? I know it’s against the rules to evade bans, but what using alt accounts for lesser infractions like the no-spamming-help-chat rule? Or what about using alt accounts to intentionally evading players’ block lists to harass (spam) them with ads? Also how do warning rules apply for shell alts? Does each individual account get two free warnings (as per the three strikes rule)? Can someone just violate minor rules in perpetuity by doing it only twice on each account before it escalates to serious reprimand?
