Hi CCP
Recently a lot of people have been pointing out what is blatant RMTing, requesting Somer be forced to stop their RMT trade. Until recently you have not made your stance clear on whether this is RMT, but now CCP Falcon has thankfully cleared this all up.

If you see the post here:
https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=3792784#post3792784

And you see why it was closed (for RMT) then if you read the OP, and compare it to here:
http://cogdev.net/blink/?act=gtc you will see that this was closed for exactly the same thing that Somer is doing. That is, giving out tickets to in game items for purchasing GTC through a set authorised reseller.

So what is the ETA for the shutdown of Somer?

So are posts about Somer now classed as RMT posts?

Which does then beg the question, if you are locking threads about Somers RMT, by stating '21. Posting regarding RMT (Real Money Trading) is prohibited.'

You are admitting that the ISDs believe that Somer is an RMT organization. So why is Somer still operating?

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

Hi Frying Doom,

I think you know us well enough to know that we're not going to answer that.

However, its off-topic for this forum and you're discussing moderation which is not allowed any more, so yes you're right - I do have to lock this.

All I can ask is that you be patient; trust me when I say that we're all waiting a response about this.

Thanks.
