Well, I sincerely doubt Nevrax was holding his account hostage or threatens their community goers to "advertise or else!" In regards to that specific user, he decided to plug his MMO community with his free time, under his free will. If he enjoys the game that
much then more power to him, but it finally got to the stages where it was pointless and redundant.
The rules for blogs are a bit more lenient, being that their purpose is to give users a realm that they can take their personal thoughts and express them, particularly if they have no place on the normal boards. Discussing MMOs that one enjoys is fine, but by flooding the blog stream with short blurbs about the same thing every time, one becomes an advertiser. That's not cool, even in the blogs. We were watching the Ryzom kid from very early on until it was decided that he crossed the threshold from being an enthusiastic fan to salesman.
