nighthawk - SGO 6-10 (Thursday, September 18 2008 6:32pm)
Below I've inserted copies or espionage report and battle report. I've been probed (time: 12:41:35) three (3) seconds before being attacked (time: 12:41:38) by player "The Commander"
I believe you can also pull it out of the system.
Ike reminder me that being probed within 5 second before the attack is considered as bugusing and perma-ban-able.
Using a bug for anyones profit intentionally or not reporting a bug intentionally is strictly forbidden.
Probing a target within 5 seconds of an attack as a Safety Measure will be treated as bugusing.

I see that you successfully ninja'd TheCommander, inspite of his 3 second safety probe.
Given the circumstances, that you still got your ninja - and the outcome of the battle was not affected by the safety probe, I will not be dealing with this via way of a ban.
It is bug using, however as stated in the first line of the rule: "Using a bug for anyones profit intentionally". As he made no profit in this case, I will warn him about his actions, and should he do this again then it will be dealt with as outlined in the rules.
I hope that you understand why I've chosen to act in this way, and if you'd like to discuss it then I'm happy to do so.
I do belive he does it all the time and that most players (including me - Ike reminded me about the 5s rule) even does not know that this is illegal.
and that he did not get a profit out of it was because of my skill/or being lucky/ not because he did not want to break the rules. He WANTED INTENTIONALLY to get a profit out of it and thats it.
your argumentation - my opinion - is wrong. its the same as you would let the bank robber walks away if he got caught by the guards .... and your opinion would be "yes, he wanted to get a profit, but guard did not allowed him to rob a bank so he can walk away free"
please rethink your decision, perhaps you have not considered all aspects when making a first decision.
