Ah.... How i'm defending them if I said they should be punished in some shape or form?
My main sorc is full colo, still full colo after the exploit rampage, no items purchased.
I'm just not being an extremist and thinking it on a more logical way. If you want to play on an empty server, it is your choice. Giving people who did a lesser exploitation of the bug should be given a second chance (remove the items they obtained, it is that simple). It won't destroy the server or anything. Lesson learned, chance to move on. Kinda like... a fair trial?
If you go medieval without giving consideration and options, pretty much you're gonna lose.
How would you feel if you bought an item that was dupped (and you didn't know) and you got your account wiped? You would rage, etc etc. This vision of "just shoot it without thinking another way" won't do any good.
The only case I would rage would be if someone who made zeny (or tried to) would be left alive and kicking without any kind of punishment.
