This serves as an official announcement for everyone.
Finding (or creating) safe nooks in dungeons is exploiting the system.
Officially, if you are finding places to macro in dungeons, you are exploiting a system meant to encourage entirely different behaviour.
To this point we have been spawning and/or blocking off these areas.
However, our rules against this type of action are well known at this point. We consider this exploiting. Our lenient rules toward exploiting have served as nothing but a challenge for some players to exploit more. If they're caught, they feel it won't matter. This serves as an incentive to attempt all kinds of exploits. Specifically in this case, when a macro spot is spawned or blocked, the offenders simply find a new spot - knowing full well we disapprove of the action.
This has turned into a game we're not interested in playing.
From now on, exploiting of any kind will result in a 24 hour ban and a mark on your account. Each mark you accumulate will result in longer bans from the server. Depending on the severity of your actions, and at GM discretion, your ban may be across ALL of your accounts.
As always, exploiting very serious bugs can and will result in an immediate permanent ban from the server.
