If we treated our customers so badly then we wouldn't have a 90%+ year over year renewal rate for our unlimited memberships since the day we opened our doors. The truth is that we go out of our way to make our customers happy, even if it means losing money on less than AAA titles by publishing requested trainers and options and supporting some trainers through 50+ game patches while other groups put out a single trainer and say forget it. We also spend time working on REAL game versions (something you of all people should appreciate) instead of just the "scene" versions like all of our other trainer making friends. We spend HOURS and DAYS working around anti-cheat steam triggers so that our customers that actually purchased the game can have a working trainer.
Your original post said that the whole Blizzard debacle was 50% our fault. I disagree. It's 100% Blizzard's fault as NO ONE should EVER be banned for cheating in a SINGLE PLAYER game. Period. I think people have made that abundantly clear.
The people who work on this website and make trainers for everyone here and for the people who visite. They dont have to do it to be truthful. If they wanted to they could close it down with out a sec thought. Really they love what they do even tho theres alot people who do complain.
The point is they want us to have fun with games we play. If you have trouble getting past a spot on a game, they are here to help. But understand they have 100's have requests and 100's of other trainers they need to make or edit or what else they do.
Give them some respect for what they do. Its the right thing to do really. Shoot I even donated $100 to them just because I like there website and really how fast they bring out trainers. Give them time it mite take a week to a month, this only place I have found that trainers dont have trojins or vires in them. I 100% support them for that. Shoot here in few more weeks will donate again because how much I do like this place.
For Blizzard yes they have the right to ban us on multi-player. Soon has we buy the game the cd the program is ours now not Blizzards anymore. So the single-player we can edit it all we want. How I know this is because I payed a layer $1,000 to confirm this infomation. The policy is only there for to protect multi-users not for single-players. By law if you hack into another players game then yes Blizzard has the rights do anything they want, plus its there server. In single player mode AI is not a person so the law ends. Now if Blizzard add something about hack or using other trainers to miss with the AI then they have all rights to ban us. Well its something like that my layer told me how it works but you know how layers talk lol.
There's no excuse for not reporting messages. Ever. Don't assume my moding procedures have change in anyway. I'm pretty busy with a full semester with lots of stuff as I near graduation so I'm sorry I am unable to devote more of my time to voluntarily go hunt down bad messages without any aid from the community through Reporting Messages.

As for the first one, there are users that repeatedly get told about the trainer troubleshooting guide, told to disable their AV etc. Then, they turn around and complain AGAIN for the same issue. To be honest, I think PWizard has done a great job of customer service. The second one makes no sense. If there were REALLY as much warez talk as to necessitate more moderators, I'm sure there would be. Don't kid yourself, PWizard and the mods know full well what goes on on the boards. What I don't get is what this has to do with Blizzard and the banning SP cheaters issue. Let's not divide ourselves here and focus on the problem at hand.
Also, I've noticed DABhand, I think it was, saying that Chris is just trying to maximise his profit by undermining the work of the games industry with his trainers. Three things:
Firstly, OF COURSE HE'S TRYING TO MAXIMISE HIS PROFIT. This website is a business, and he has every right to try and make as much profit from it as he can. That's how business works. If you start a business without the intent of making money, you'll get laughed out of the bank.
Secondly, he isn't trying to undermine anybody, least of all the games industry. I don't think he condones cheating in MP at all, and all he is doing in this circumstance is standing up to the totalitarian bent that Blizzard has got into its head regarding any third-party changes to its games as an affront to them. You're misconstruing the rights of software owners as biting the hand that feeds them.
Thirdly, if you don't condone cheating in any form, why are you on this site?
You disrespected myself first for no reason, out of the blue from a post I made, which led to you falsely accusing me of something I haven't done.
And you have niggled me in a few other posts since then, look at the PS3 thread, It started off with me being positive and hoping it will be great, but no you had to come around and bring the mood down and you actually attacked me in the same thread.
Do you deny this? Of course you can't.
Disrespecting the site? Jesus what drugs are you on. I have never disrespected this site, I have actually defended it on many forms.
As for the 50% fault yes of course it is, you had known that SC2 was an online required game, for activation and just normal SP gameplay, there was always a smattering of doubt over the chances of things going wrong due to their checking for changes constantly on the customers end. So you had to at least use some common sense and give a possible warning to users that it may be best to play in offline mode while using a trainer.
Its not difficult and only takes a few seconds and people are protected much more than those who use it while the game is connected to servers.
And to be honest with you, I am not 100% certain they were banned for SP cheating, is any of them going to put their hands up and say... "Damn I tried a MP match and pressed an option button and was de-synced from the server" Nahh they wont. Cause how many who did get the trainer and did not get banned even when connected to servers?
Anyways lets not talk to each other now Chris, because I am sure it will get worse.
