Still trying to find the link to the bot link, nothing wrong with discussion of bots tho.
Honestly, I fail to see the problem with links to programs (though it's occuring to me that I need to label links), even if they are for non-game reasons.
I wouldn't suggest killing a link to ShowEQ from the eq forums, nor this one. A direct cheat? yes. but fishing bots have been around for a while, if the makers of the game intended to fix them they would.
Dunno, rather see people talk and debate the issue in a nice flame war than have a thread administratively censored.
I dont believe that providing links to scripting programs contributes to any debate. People do get banned in game for using these scripts. And about SE doing something to get rid of them, the way fishing is set up its very esy to script. Think of swimming in EQ. Lodge a coin in one of your directional keys and can max your skill while sleeping. Technically not allowed, but very difficult to combat unless you completely redo how swimming works. A fishing bot is a little more complicated then that, but fairly easy to do comparitively speaking.
