The Sheep Decided To Boycott Entrecard
Nothing to do with how great or how lousy the system is. Nothing to do with Entrecard in general, just that I cannot disagree more on how people behind Entrecard handle things.
In short, an Entrecard member’s account was deleted because he claims (pure claiming with no proof) that he could drop 300 cards within 5 seconds. This alone has got my disagreement. But things doesn’t stop here.
The member who got his account deleted was questioning for the reason, and the reason given was because he claims that he could drop 300 cards in 5 seconds, even without any concrete proof. Proof such as logs are not given—instead, Entrecard insist that they are doing the right thing to delete a member’s account with the claim alone.
Entrecard also mentioned that in order to restore his account, he must either:
- Provide us with the details of the method you utilized to subvertEntrecard security or
- Post publically on the same forum thread with the following exact wording:
“I wish to apologize to my fellow Entrecard users for undermining their faith in the Entrecard system in order to boost my ego. I do not in fact have a method for automatically dropping cards rapidly. I also apologize to the Entrecard programmer, who is in fact awesome.“
Entrecard also demanded for a scan or digital photograph of a piece of paper, signed and dated by the member, with the following wording:
“I commit henceforth never to abuse, or claim to abuse, the security systems of Entrecard.”
This shows how proud Entrecard could be of itself. To me, all these shows that they doesn’t appreciate their members or even respect them at all. This have nothing to do with me, but it is enough to make me boycott Entrecard.
