Then how about fucking telling us about it before banning our server 
IPs? I still can't believe this mentality. The community servers are 
what drives the long term popularity of a game.. The people who run 
these servers devote their time, effort and money to helping make a game 
do well.. and in return we're now getting treated like 3rd rate script 
kiddies. How about an ounce of respect in return? That's not much to 
ask, is it?

The right thing for EA to do at this point is declare amnesty. Remove 
all blacklists, give people a couple of days to remove the "mods" and 
then start adding people to a blacklist if they still want to.

I know one server admin doesn't exactly carry any weight with EA, 
especially since they've already shown they couldn't give a crap about 
us, but for what it's worth, I'm taking our servers offline.
