    I wonder how long until we see a lawsuit about that one. So now free speech will be limited and if you step over the line you are also banned from playing the game you paid money for? Hmmm... that's going too far.

    Well, a business forum isn't for "free speech". Idiots deserve to be banned. But if someone paid for games, it's completely unethical to blacklist their purchases just because they vented on Electronic Art's forums. I'm sure I've help pay for some of their employees' houses by the way (well, maybe a bedroom or two) over the years.

    Yes, of course there is an expectation of people being civil and following rules but banning a user from playing games due to their actions in a forum is totally beyond insane, IMHO.

    Yes. I agree completely. Just nuts . . .
