BioWare is dead serious about upholding its Terms of Services and will bring down the hammer of justice hard should you step out of line. One member (username withheld) of the Star Wars: The Old Republic message board learned that the hard way when his / her account was permanently suspended.

How did the moderation team discover this flagrant disregard for the rules? User X admitted as much in a post in this thread. For those without access to the site, here's how the post read:

BWAAAAA HAA HA HA HA HA HAAAA HA HA HA HAAAA!

(Thanks for sending this in, Ryan and Mitchel!)
