I think that we all have noticed the inevitable influx of kids who constantly ask for a game key in the game. I think that that is always going to be present in all games. Kids with a sense of entitlement to free stuff.

However, today was the first time I saw this. A player who used the name "awb" and then later changed his name to "jjj22" was spamming the chat with what looked like a pre written message (it had all the same typos in it each time). It said something along the lines of "Anyone want to buy a copy of the registration code for Altitude for less than the full price?" followed be "search ebay for altitude game account."

I think that as annoying as the kids who ask for registration keys are, they don't end up causing anyone any harm. But if people are getting duped into buying a fake key on ebay, well that's another issue. So I figured I would alert you guys to this before it becomes a problem.

Thanks for the heads up, we definitely need to start thinking about ways to keep the scammers in check.

Yeah, saw the same guy in a game last night, but he was actually talking too(not just a pre written msg), and he had a different name at the time too..

For the official servers, do you have access to who played/when? so that we can report the names/times they played, and you can just perma-ban them?, to keep this nonsense out of here.

Along the same lines, is there a chat log somewhere on my local box when I run the game? I've seen some classic chats like this.
