Joe either left his computer unattended without locking it or does not use individual accounts/logs in as the admin with no password on his laptop when he boots. In both cases he didn't follow normal computer security and shared his User ID and password just as certain sure as if he had written it down and taped it on the bottom of his keyboard or posted it in a forum. Telling someone they can play your EQ account and giving them the account information is not the only definition of "sharing". I hope we understand that you are responsible for your end of account security means that you are responsible. Unuathorized use or use beynd what you are authorized might be a violation of the CF&A Act, but failing to keep your computer and account secure is a "firing" offense. Traveling Joe is unlikely to log in from New York at 10AM EST and 6:15AM San Bernadino PST. Nor is he likely to kicl the person logged in at San Bernadino and log the character back in from New York. And there are chat logs. There have been cases other than Conquest where there's been semi-public dispute. When pressed extra hard SOE has in a couple of cases showed its hand and rather than pursue the matter further the arguer dropped it. I'm not arguing with you and you are entitled to have and express a personal opinion but I'd not want to test your theories.
