[bf1942] GSP allowed to host ranked knife and pistol servers

As far as I know both MyIs and EA are aware of the K&P servers and have asked repeatedly for the people with those servers to swtich to normal play. Those that haven't complied have had their servers erased.

I know the guys at MyIs and while they are pretty happy with how their business has grown, I am sure they are not making enough profit to keep EA rolling in the dough.

Please keep in mind this is a public e-mail list. If you have complaints against EA or one of its trusted partners, it is probably best for you to take it to either party rather then send something out on e-mail without knowing all the facts.

  I know this is the unranked mailing list but I do not have the info for the ranked one. If someone can post it there it would be great. Seems EA is allowing knife and pistol ranked servers now since myinternetservices.com is now hosting at least 3 of them for bf2142 and they remain online after many reports against them. A lot of k/p server have been shut down in the past that were reported to the former bfroe which is owned by myis. From what I hear myis never sent in reports to EA about their own knife and pistol servers to make more money. (KMA) Pistal Knife Only (KMA) Knife Only SNIPER RIFLE KNIFE AND DEFIB ONLY!!! DRAMA FREE ZONE 

  All have the myis provider id of 10029, the first one even has sponsor text (Server Hosted by LcT and -eXo-, provided by MyInernetServices.). myis have been notified many times and refuse to remove them. One of their staff stated when asked about them: 

  "Tim is paying EA the big bucks, and therefore they are his friends, not Tim being theirs, and cos of their attitude, he will allow the servers no matter what"

  "without those clients, EA wouldn't be getting those big bucks"


  So basicly give EA a cut and they ignore your illegal servers while others get shut down. Even totalroe.com displays 3 of those servers in a list of myis hosted servers. 

  sorry for the rant but a lot of gsp's want bf2142 ranked provider status while myis continues to break the rules time and time again.
