Banned for Association (IMPORTANT)

Yesterday, I received a 3 day ban from Firefly. Knowing that I had only committed my usual sins, I sent in a support ticket.

I was told by the support admin that I was being investigated in conjunction with other members of my house for "gross violation" of the terms of use. I was being investigated for my "underlings" actions (yes they said underlings in the mail). I was clearly found to have done nothing wrong as they lifted my ban but they warned me that the actions of my housemates could lead to my permanent ban.

I cannot, nor can any other marshal or general, police the actions of my members when it comes to alts accounts, hacks, or bots. I have the power to declare war not to scan computers. Being a marshal is a part of the game that adds to the fun and organization but if I am to be banned for members (many of whom I do not even know yet) it makes a marshal ship a liability.

Firefly needs to come out with answers very quickly on this matter. Either put it in your rules that Marshals are accountable or that mess from yesterday needs to be fixed and not happen again.

We're not asking you to police anyone's computer or to do anything at all. We're telling you that when we see a group of accounts cheating to benefit a house, you can bet that we are going to look at the house leader too. Encouraging others to break the rules or benefiting from it is not tolerated. Let's compare this to being the CEO of a company. If one of your executives steals a candy bar and gets arrested for shop lifting, chances are that you the CEO knew nothing about this and didn't direct the person to steal the candy bar, nothing is going to happen to you. If one of your executives and his whole division are cooking the books to be the next Enron, then you should probably expect to face some criminal charges.

To be totally clear:

We're NOT saying that if one member of your house is cheating you will be banned.

We ARE saying that if there is a large group of players in your house blatantly spawning dozens of dummy accounts to benefit the house, do not expect we will ignore you.
