    Default Scamming is bad... but also a good thing?!

    To start of, i just wanted to say im bored and i dont know why i made this thread.

    UPDATE: Guys thanks for ur opinions, i finally understand both side, there is good nor bad, no need to cause some hates.

    In short term, THE INTERNET IS INEVITABLE.

    I think scamming would be a neutral thing if it didn't get players to quit or take too much from players. Its prominence is a good teaching moment for most players, it (kinda) helps to promote the economy?, and shows the developers what they need to change in the way the economy works + the game services.

    Doesn't mean it shouldn't be prevented in most ways possible and is definitely something the devs need to continue work on.

    I guess if you wanted to cherry-pick you could consider scamming as something akin to natural selection?

    Yeah that's another possibility. Weed out the susceptible people and keep the veteran players, but the problem with this is we want new players to come and the noobs are kind of what keeps the game alive and kicking.

    Scamming is good for filtering smarties and idiots

    It's bad, no doubt. But it servers a purpose that cannot be denied: To teach players to be distrustful.

    I can definitely see a good side of scamming. Don't get me wrong I'm not a scammer.

    The thing is, scammers basically force the developers to implement measures to stop them, which makes the game much safer for others.
    For example, I remember when we could sell worlds with unblocked items and then the items would get taken because there was a door there.

    Also as stated above, scamming kind of prepares you for real life, you will have less trust in unbelievable deals and tend to take extra steps to be secure
    Some Messages I've gathered.
