I think we all know what ongoing event this is about... Not going to name it directly so I don't tarnish any outstanding reputations on this site. In January, I anti-scammed a customer off-site after asking permission from a mod. The mod in question told me because it was off-site, I didn’t need to collaborate with sythe staff. To the staff, it wasn't important because I was not going to be liable to the site's members. I anti-scammed by taking a "bet". Afterwards, the person I anti-scammed created an account on Sythe. A report was brought on site and because of this I was liable to sythe's rules. I was held liable for both the "bet" amount and the winnings, subtracting the amount I was scammed. I ended out having to pay back the equivalent of the winnings from the bet, as the bet amount was near identical to the correct anti-scam amount. If I had not paid back the difference of [BET + WINNINGS - ANTISCAM], I would have remain banned. Why is the policy different for clans? There have been dozens of scam reports on Sythe against clan members. The owners get away with only refunding the bet amount. I understand that the owners are not the direct person scamming, but those ranks are their employees. Just as partners who own a service together are liable for the other partner should they scam-quit, a clan should be liable for the scamming of their members. Clans say they don't conduct business on Sythe. I didn't conduct business on Sythe. I was held liable to pay out the winnings, otherwise I would have been banned from using this forum. Clans are not held fully liable, over and over again. Either require them to update their Terms of Service to conform to the rules of the site, or don't allow them to advertise here.
