Got Ip banned for abusing Hot Time. Will I get unbanned?
Ahem, so I would like to tell everyone that I just got IP banned for logging on my ~50 accounts to get Goodness Chaoses on them. What's particularly annoying is that they didn't IP ban me until I finished getting all 50. Do you guys think I'll get unbanned?
[B]SO HERE'S THE TICKET I SENT TO THEM (I TOOK THE LIBERTY OF ITALICIZING DIALOGUE ON HERE):[/B]
When I was young, my father and I used to write notes to each other and send them via paper airplane. We played this game often, even when it was more convenient to simply talk to each other. I would watch with anticipations as my father unfolded my airplane and wait patiently for a plane's return.
One day, nine years ago, I had a message of utmost importance to deliver, so I dashed into my grandparents' house towards the printer. I tore open its bottom compartment and grabbed a sheet of paper. I quickly scrawled down a message and made sure to fold the plane perfectly: there were many people present and the risk of interception by a foreign party was high. Any mistake in construction would lead the plane astray.
My father was twenty feet downwind, surrounded by obstacles and obstructions. This mission was difficult but not impossible. I closed one eye and slowly moved my hand holding the plane towards my father's figure and followed through. I watched as the plane soared through the sky and evaded enemy forces. Bulls-eye, mission success!
But my reception wasn't as warm as I had expected it to be. Instead of smiling back at me and returning my plane, the unfathomable occurred. He crushed my plane on the spot. My eyes burst open and my face became pale.
He admonished in a harsh tone, [i]"Enough with the airplanes. You're already seven years old. Just learn to communicate properly."[/i]
It was then that I learned that, like paper airplanes, feelings will never fly straight.
After my father walked away, I silently sat on the cement teary-eyed. I've always had difficulties understanding others and reading situations, and I could easily be described as a "dense" or even peculiar person, but at the very least, I knew not to make a scene there.
[i]"Hey there,"[/i] a voice gently called out.
I looked up and saw that my uncle had come to console me.
Seeing my acknowledgement, he proceeded, [i]"Do you know why your dad did that?"[/i]
I wasn't very sure how to approach his question, so I stared at him silently for the longest period of time before eventually shaking my head.
[i]"Well, he wants you to become a strong, reliable person. Someone that can take care of a family when you grow up."[/i]
I sheepishly retorted, [i]"But before, he would always write back."[/i]
He took a deep breath before answering, [i]"Well, try this. Whenever someone does something that you don't understand or whenever you get angry or sad, write a letter to that person describing how you feel. Don't hold anything back. Write whatever comes to your mind."[/i]
[i]"But what if they get mad at me after they read the letter?"[/i]
He gave me a look that told me to be patient and continued, "Now after you've finished, write another letter. This time imagine that you're the other person writing back.
Think about their situation and what they could be feeling."
At first, I couldn't completely understand what my uncle had told me to do. I was only seven after all. But from that day, I've traded in my paper planes for letters. I can proudly say that since then I've written almost forty of those letters. Through writing letters I have come to understand more about others and believe that after each letter, I find myself one step closer to reaching adulthood. I can't claim that my uncle has taught me the secrets of the human psyche, but he has given me a tool that allows me to view the world through others' eyes.
And so, Nexon, I write this letter to you so that you may understand my viewpoint. I admit l was probably in breach the Terms of Service that were set, by creating multiple accounts to take advantage of an in-game event, the Hot Time event held on 12/16/12 in Maplestory, to gather up as many Goodness Chaos Scrolls as I could, as part of a "get rich fast scheme"; however, I did not participate in any "suspicious" or "illegal" activities. So, I would like to ask whichever Game Master is reading this letter to consider withdrawing the IP ban that was put on my home. If it need be, then ban my account, but at least remove the IP ban so my brother can continue to enjoy this game.
