Why are private servers bad?

GMS

Private Servers are illegal (copyright infringement and all. Check the "Server emulator" article on Wikipedia for more info). They can't be discussed on Basil.

Are you the person whose account we were forced to erase earlier because of YouTube spam? This is a gaming site. You'll have to look for an audience elsewhere.

There are a few possible causes. Basil's engine switch may be responsible (though my avatar worked until a few days ago, while the switch took place in October), or Nexon deciding to display avatars

@thiefy996: I didn't have a choice. :( It was either the little "this image cannot be displayed" icon, or the "toilet brush with goggles on" look. I miss my Scorpius Hairpin.

The difference between a dictatorship and Basil Market is that you're free to leave Basil Market if you don't like the way MrBasil handles things. It's only a gaming site.
