  61. Mazreth says, "If you haven't read the post from Coase concerning GMA in general I can link you to that as it might better explain policy regarding bugs."
  62. Mazreth says, "Http://"
  63. You ask, "For my own edification, may I please be directed to the "documents and version notes" referenced in GM Coase's Policy post?"
  64. You say, "Yes, sir, I have read it."
  65. You say, "Many times."
  66. Mazreth says, "Now you're going to make me read it."
  67. You say, "I don't understand why I'm being punished here, but I don't want to make you have to explain it to me."
  68. You say, "I know that's not your job."
  69. You say, "So I will glady go over the documentation if I can just be directed to it."
  70. Mazreth says, "Well, since all I have are the notes to go on, I can say that a discussion about intentions to exploit the bug before it was discovered are the primary reason anyone and everyone involoved is getting a warning."
  71. Mazreth says, "Let me see if I can find the documentation he's referring to."
  72. You say, "Yes, sir, I understand that it's been labeled as intentions to exploit the bug, but I don't understand how I am supposed to have known it was a bug."
  73. You say, "I only cast the spell."
  74. You say, "I didn't even get an item."
  75. Mazreth says, "You've played long enough to know what metals shouldn't be enchantable and if they are...."
  76. Mazreth says, "You should know beetter."
  77. You say, "The 925 spell was just updated, sir."
  78. Mazreth says, "You didn't just start playing this game."
  79. Mazreth says, "I realize that, but nowhere was it released that suddenly you can enchant new things."
  80. You say, "We were encouraged to experiment on old previously unenchantable items."
  81. You say, "Respectfully, I disagree sir."
  82. You say, "I can link you the forums posts."
  83. Mazreth says, "So what Coase is referring to by "documentation and version notes" is Policy 7 specifically."
  84. Mazreth says, "So if you've read policy 7, you've read what he's referring to."
  85. You say, "Okay."
  86. You say, "I have read it."
  87. You ask, "It is understood that I did not profit from this action?"
  88. Mazreth says, "It is."
  89. You say, "Thank you."
  90. Mazreth says, "You're welcome."
  91. Mazreth says, "I just happened to see your report and didn't want you to languish in here. If you'd like I can set you up with an SGM referral to speak with Coase about it."
  92. Mazreth says, "Or you can reach out to feedback."
  93. You say, "I would consider the issue closed at the end of our conversation here unless escalating it is required."
  94. Mazreth says, "It is not required and that's fair by me."
  95. Mazreth says, "I just wanted you to have the option."
  96. Mazreth says, "If you desired."
