The Original Post
About two weeks ago, I asked whether or not you believe the draconian and fragile measures PSO takes to discourage cheating are misguided.
LastUtopia's post reminded me of this topic, and I want to see what you think now. We have now established these facts:
* The anti-cheating measures in PSO do not
prevent cheating, nor do they even make it inconvenient.
* The anti-cheating measures in PSO put the average player's character at extreme risk every time he plays. A power outage (not unheard of in California these days), a crash, a strange disconnect, a flakey memory card, a tripped-over power cord, or - god forbid - a player accidentally turning off his DC could result in a player losing hundreds
of hours of character development.
With these in mind, do you still
believe that the ineffective PSO anti-cheating methods are appropriate?
