Last Sunday I did something that I wasn't really proud of. I justified the action in my head, and had given myself every reason why it was perfectly acceptable. At the end though, it was without a doubt, the move of a complete jerk. Even if I gave myself an additional out of saying I had just spent too long at the computer that weekend, it just wasn't right.
Fortunately, we the GMs who service the game can pull a lot of information out of their databases. All I had was a time and a location, nothing else, and Blizzard was able to at least take a step towards making the wrong right. I didn't even have to log into the game to do it, just send in an email, and 12 hours later I got a response letting me know it was taken care of. Fortunately what I did technically didn't violate any rules, so at least I have that going for me. And maybe, just maybe, someone felt a little better when the loaded up their mail last night.
What's the moral of this story? I don't know that I really have one, other than it's a good idea to take a break once in a while during the day, and that the GMs do a damn fine job of helping out.
