After talking with a buddy of mine over the weekend who ended up getting banned because CGL doesn't understand network address translation, and then seeing links on the Iron Wind Metals site that went to the official forums, I came to a revelation.
When you get a "perma-ban", Catalyst Game Labs is saying that they no longer want you as a customer. You are not allowed to ask rule questions, download files, or communicate with CGL partners. CGL is, from a company standpoint, saying they no longer want you as a customer. They may argue this, but it is kinda obvious what their stance actually is by their actions.
Basically, that is "perma-lame" on their part IMO.
On another note, I put up a link on my forum asking the viewers what they want me to work on next. Go vote, once I get a few more I'll start working on my next update and/or new product!
Till next time, happy gaming!
