Ithaca_nz writes: An interesting post from EA representative "Apoc" has appeared in the EA Support forums for Command and Conquer. The post affects more than just C&C, however — it seems that posting in the EA forums is now a risky business:

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 you'd 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. It's all one in the same, so I strongly reccommend people play nice and act mature.

Beyond that, this also effectively blocks you from selling any EA game once you're finished with it. If the person you sold an EA game to a year ago is banned for any reason, any other EA games you still own and the latest blockbuster you've just bought are now expensive drink coasters...

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
