EA Says Shut Up Or Else

Twentysided has the scoop on an enlightening post from an EA Official Forum Moderator. In it, the mod threatens that a ban from the EA forums will result in your EA games possibly being rendered inoperative.

Well, its actually going to be a bit nastier for those who get banned.

Your forum account will be directly tied to your Master EA Account, so if we ban you on the forums, you would be banned from the game as well since the login process is the same. And youd actually be banned from your other EA games as well since its all tied to your account. So if you have SPORE and Red Alert 3 and you get yourself banned on our forums or in-game, well, your SPORE account would be banned to. Its all one in the same, so I strongly reccommend people play nice and act mature.

All in all, we expect people to come on here and abide by our ToS. We hate banning people, it makes our lives a lot tougher, but its what we have to do.

Those banned will stay banned, but like most other internet services, its not that hard to create a new fake e-mail account. However, its a lot harder to get a new serial key =)

Avatars should be back within 2 weeks of the launch.

It should be noted that posting complaints about DRM, as well as generally bad behavior, can result in a ban. Essentially, EA is telling customers to shut up or they'll take your toys away.
