In the end, it happened. The ticket has been closed and the ban that affected Frizzy87 has been confirmed. This is both unfair and stupid. What's more, it leaves us all with some unanswered, important questions.

UNFAIR
Did Frizzy87 violate the ToS? No, he didn't and I'm really sure of it, after playing with him for years. Just look at the attached stats: these results have been achieved by following the rules. For every kilometer of the tracker badge, Frizzy drove at least 30km by car. That's how the game works here in Foxtrot-13. As a deeply respected and reliable player, he devoted countless hours, night and day, to this game and to the local community. He attended various anomalies, he spent money in the "premium" features of the game and in Niantic's swag items, yet all that he achieved was an automatic message which kicked him out of the whole thing. No one knows why, no one knows what he's been accused of. He put a ton of effort in terms of time and money and he didn't gain the slightest right to know what happened. He's not alone in this mess, I know, but this doesn't make this story fairer.

STUPID
This is where the questions kick in: how are we supposed to create ops and talk the players into taking parts in them? What are we promising them? "C'mon, you're gonna have fun... or you'll be banned without notice, who knows? Isn't it exciting?" Well no, it isn't.
The same reasoning applies to anomalies, events, even this shard thing. Players were banned while fighting on the portals! How can we urge someone on getting on the car-train-whatever, spending money, taking days off from work, not sleeping for a couple of days straight just to end up without his/her's account?
SHOULD WE EVEN TRY TO? Trying to go on like nothing happened is really the right thing to do?
In the end it looks easier to create a herd of fake accounts and to play knowing they're expendable. It looks easier but it isn't, we spent years fighting against this mindset because we were truly confident that abiding by the rules was not only the right thing to do, but the better course of action in order to respect each and every player of both factions. Is this true anymore?
I sincerely don't know how to answer these questions.

We're still trying to overturn +NIA Ops judgement, we're still opening that damn ticket again and again and again. Frizzy deserves some real answer, we all do.
Don't let this story go unnoticed, don't let any of these stories get lost on the stream of memes which choke your G+ homepage. Share it, share all of them. It's for you, it's for your community, it's for your cell, it's for your faction, it's for Frizzy87 and for the too many players who share the same experience!

Share and BE LOUD!

((REPOST, SOMETHING WENT WRONG))

Today, 23 february 2017, at about 7PM CET, one of the most active agents of FVG's Resistance got banned, that's @Frizzy87... one of the most loyal players, known by almost everybody, as one who really loves this game, ready to do everything needed to help his faction... the enlightened, too, know him very well as a player who deeply respects the rules of the game.
We are asking to reactivate his account as this bann was more than unexpected, and coming with a very bad timing, as we are playing the shard game these days...
The agent was verified, trusted, known, loyal, and everything else you can get in your mind, he leveled up till L16, he joined a couple of anomalies, he partecipated as ground troop in many local, national and international operations, he has been known around Italy because of the passion, the pure love, he has for ingress, so this all to say if theres is anyone deserving a ban, that's not @Frizzy87, who invested in this game uncountable hours and fuel refills, money, feelings and everything he got, since when he joined this reality.
So we really hope this is gonna be fixed as soon as possible, cause we need our mate back...
Supporting this all, most of the resistance from Foxtrot13, and even some friends from Foxtrot 12
(and anyone else feeling like adding him/herself, please do it in the comments)

The vintage HAL 9000 poster is not an original design: I was inspired (well I've cloned it :P), from a Justin Van Genderen's ( http://2046design.com/ ) idea. I have looked for it but it is sold out so...here is my version #gimp #inkscape #hal9000

Hey guys, many of you ask how you can download butter, or what happened to Popcorn Time, well, there have been some hard work for us to get it all work again and probably will not depend on us, so wait for news until there, but you can check this link to further information http://butterproject.github.io. As for the the Butter app, we are making some few tweaks, and it will be available on the site soon. And it will be to use like Popcorn Time, but with some differences ;) Stay tuned :D
