    It's pathetic. I talked to the guy and he banned me, but when I messaged him about donating, he kept spamming me with messages to come back and how he wanted to just get his dream item.. Didn't some guy get away with Phoenix Wings like this?

    I'm not trying to get this guy banned or anything, it's just annoying seeing people fake deadly illnesses and get people to feel bad enough to donate.

    Even if the guy actually had a disease, he shouldn't had used it to try to get in-game currency.

    They have no morals, simple. They don't find any means unethical.

    Ouch... It’s honestly super disrespectful to the people who actually suffer from these illnesses that one tries to make them and for what? That’s right ,just some useless game currency! It really makes me pissed how much morals these people lack, and how immature they are.

    It's sad but true.
    Even if you are at the right track, you'll still get run over if you just sit there.

    Geez, how low can moral decency get? -.-

    It's not a trivial issue to use terminal illnesses for sympathy and can be disrespectful to those who are actually suffering from them. ( It's no different than that one idiot Youtuber) The Devs should include this explicitly in the rules to prevent it further. :/

    People shouldnt use serious illensses as a way to get items or even joke about it like that. Its a serious matter that ruins a lot of families and friends.

    I remember back in 2014 or 15, someone came and he/she claimed to have cancer but it turned out that he/she didnt and he/she got bashed for it and banned from the forums. (I may be wrong idk)

    Shows that people can do crazy stuff just to get virtual items. Buying wls for irl money, although still illegal, would be more reasonable.

    And he used cancer.

    They are making you sympathetic so you could donate them. It's a smart move, but not smart enough.

    See, my thing is, if you have a terminal illness, 1. Why are you on gt? You should be spending time with your family with the last days you have left. 2. What's the point in donating to you (Sorry if this is mean, but it's true) if you are going to pass away anyway? All of those items go to waste. You can at least go out doing a massive giveaway, and giving back to the community. And if there's a "miraculous miracle", it is 100% a fake illness coughTaylorHcough
