Ahhh.. I have had many tips from people about id's.. gotta love the desire to get on the good side.. :)  As for you protecting.. don't you have to be out of d mode?? ;) LOL

In all seriousness.. getting on the good side of someone that you worry about is really a great idea...

Sometimes an empty reply/veiled threat works just fine. I was being probe hounded quite a bit by a certain player. He even sent attacks after I'd probe back to let him know I was online. I always shut down the mines and FRS'd seconds before he'd land, but he didn't take the hint.

I simply let him know that I understood his picking on me (I was significantly lower ranked), and let him know that I had GD options in the area if he wanted to persist.

It seriously does help to actually have a big guy close who could crush him  :P

If those types are persistent.. then get a higher ranked player that is willing to do a return ninja..  That will solve the problem.. :)

Don't make fun of my diplomacy problem!!  I have confidence the doctor will find a cure... in the meantime I suggest everyone move their toys next to me so I may protect you from mean ole Ken  :mrgreen:
