Maxis Suspends additional accounts related to Alphaville Herald

by Alphaville Herald on 10/12/03 at 12:53 pm

In this Rapidly Breaking story, it appears that EA/Maxis is attempting to pursue its vendetta against the Alphaville Herald by banning additional sims from the game. Now the account associated with Doctor Legion has either been suspended or terminated. Doctor Legion has received no official statement of suspension from maxis, much less a justification of why, but has recieved an “account suspended” message on login. Doctor Legion has received no warnings from Maxis to date and did not have a reference to the alphaville herald in his bio. We are seeking clarification from Maxis.

Recapping the situation, a policy of selective enforcement of the EA TOS began when the Alphaville Herald began pressing Maxis to notify local police authorities of an in game report or child abuse. These attacks have intensified since we have begun reporting cases of child cyber-prostitution in game. The alleged TOS violations have involved in game references to The Alphaville Herald. These suspensions continue even though to the best of our knowledge all references to the alphaville herald were removed from player bios days ago.

    I don’t understand Maxis’ reasoning. Evangeline mentions her web site on her property’s description. People mention in their bios all the time.

    Regardless, I’ve recently discovered the Alphaville Herald and read it with much interest. Keep up the good work!

    EA/Maxis don’t have any rights to do this! I encourage everyone to email EA and Maxis and to complain about this situation.

    This isn’t EA or tech support buddy. You need to contact EA for that.

    although, JC, he will probably get more help here than at EA tech support, lol, I wonder if Ozzy will be working the phones when he calls.
