I am resharing this for all those who haven't followed the drama down to the 100's comment. In short: If you consider messing with the military for the sake of a game, then don't. It is not worth the risk.

Has anybody noticed how insanely good the spell check in the mission editor has become. It knows who (!) I want to write about. Surely some shaper tech.

Working on a fascinating project on cities. After a lot of data analysis I did some field studies on Saturday and went for a big tour of the Council Estates (ie social housing projects) in Bristol. 35km walked and learned a lot.

Bug?
I was very surprised that I received many duplicate portal candidates in the recent batch of new submissions.

Looking into this I have become convinced that I am being asked to review candidates after they have already been approved and appear on the map.

Is that a bug? If so, +NIA Ops, how am I meant to score a portal that has already been approved? Is it a disagreement if I say its a duplicate (of itself?)

Targetting, Staliking, similar things
Personally, I am pretty sick of hearing people talk of being "targeted" or "stalked" by other players. This why I stopped playing football: the bloody defenders were always stalking me.

If somebody follows you around, or hangs around your house to intimidate you personally, that is a crime. If somebody follows you around or hangs around outside your house because you are playing the same game and you happen to play at the time this is occurring or your house happens to be a high level portal, that is just what the game is.

Besides, getting so emotionally attached to a portal that it causes you great distress when it is smashed is maybe not a good idea.

Junior Players - I think this issue deserves its own post. How do we stand regarding underage, meaning less than 13 year old agents. Personally, I find it a slippery slope to argue that certain parts of the rules don't apply. Of course everybody agrees that this is not as bad as spoofing but it does have the feel of double accounting in many cases. (also I think parents might be ruining ingress for the children)
