It would appear now that anyone can say anything, do anything, and then gain yet extra attention by making a public apology for their actions.

It is so sickening, what we've allowed in our society as of late.

I for one am tired of hearing apologies from these people in the news, all of them, who are now just playing CYA for words or actions that they performed, knowing it would draw that attention in the first place.

The apology claims should all be tossed, and you all should just be held accountable for said words and actions.

I'd like to call them all names, which they rightfully deserve, however those equally apply to all of us who have furthered and allow this behavior to become prominent in the first place.

True true... I'm also tired of celebrities, the way they do the same thing, let alone how they treat marriage, but that's a whole other thread....

Ingress is a great game and I have the pleasure of playing with a wonderful Resistance team in the Lehigh Valley, Slate Belt and Pocono area of Pennsylvania.  

I am posting today because I've run into a problem with seemingly no resolution to that problem.

Agents have come to use parks and the like, places with specific opening and closing times, to anchor fields which they hope will endure a little longer than if they were anchored in places available 24 hours a day.  The Ingress Community Guidelines state:  "Trespass:  Don't trespass while playing Ingress (and don't try to lawyer that guideline, just respect it).  Do not access any property or location while playing the game if you're not sure you have the right to be there".

Most players respect that rule as Niantic asks them to.

I know myself I have been to places where the hours posted are not readily evident and I don't usually report an agent for a first offense, except if after being told about the place - they continue on as if they have a royal dispensation to be there.

There is one agent though, who seems to believe the rule does not have any application to him what so ever.  @MrIdea an Enlightened player playing in the Lehigh Township area of Pennsylvania continues to violate the letter and the spirit of the rule.  I have had multiple conversations with him about this specific place.  It's important to note this portal is not at all accessible from the road.  You must go into the park to get to it and the best part is the portal is 10' directly behind the sign you will see below.  Literally the best access to the portal is to park at this sign and walk to it.  It is on the opposite side of the parking lot from the entrance and there is no other way to access the portal, it's why I used it.

To add insult to injury, the time previous to yet another occurrence this morning, I congratulated this player for actually accessing the park during it's open hours and suggested to him that he use the day light to go to the sign and see that what I was telling him about the hours was correct.  We even had collegial conversation about the matter and at that time I thought we had finally reached an understanding about accessing this place after 11 pm.

I was wrong.  As you will see below, the player was back at 1:56 this morning taking down fields I placed just before 11pm. (10:38 to be exact).

So today I posted to +NIA Ops the notice of complaint against this player who refuses to "respect" (as Nia requires) the rules, and I am making this post to ask folks like +Joe Philley and +Brandon Badger if they believe that the rules work when players like this drive directly into a closed park which they have no right to be in? After being told there is a sign that posts the open hours of the park that is easily accessible and easy to find, and this player all but acknowledging he knows about it. (I wish I had saved that conversation now.  It was however in "All Comms" and other players chimed in on the conversation, folks know it happened).

I ask fellow Ingress players what they would do when another player believes he does not have to follow the guidelines of the game?  Does anyone see anything ambiguous about the sign below?
