Everyone can settle down. I think the real question that no one is asking is what difference does it make if someone is using auto-reload extensions to refresh a page every 10-15 seconds versus someone just sitting at their computer pushing F5 every 10-15 seconds? There are no robots leasing planes automatically--it is all done manually because someone is sitting in front of their computer. I have openly admitted to using auto-refresh extensions in the past because there literally is zero difference between pushing F5 every 15 seconds versus the browser pushing F5 for you.
Sami is trying to eliminate excess server load and "cheating" by putting in safeguards against the practice. If refreshing the used aircraft page every 10 seconds blocks you out and potentially bans you from the game area, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that you can sit at your computer and press F5 without using a browser extension and still get banned for using a browser extension you don't even have installed.
For everyone claiming they are morally or ethically superior for not using a browser extension, how does the practice of pushing F5 to refresh the page differ than someone auto-reloading? This is like complaining that someone based at ATL and have a larger airline--the opportunity is available for all players, but very few people take advantage of the opportunity.
Furthermore, a supposed ban based on traffic logs is not going to solve the problem anyways. What's to keep someone from using an autoreloader that refreshes every 10-20 seconds based on a random number? It's easy to see who refreshes every 10 seconds, but how can we say with certainty that someone consistently refreshing every 10-20 seconds is an automated script? If Curse or anyone else has the time of day to watch their browser refresh for hours on end, what makes you think that pushing F5 manually is going to be a deterrent from endless refreshes and accumulating large numbers of aircraft?
I do agree with sami that refreshes can and do waste resources, but the used aircraft market system REQUIRES resources to be wasted for it's most efficient use by players. Again, I hope this is a short term fix until a new system is put in place as banning players for refreshing manually or automatically is not going to the fix the problem. If you don't want people refreshing the used aircraft market constantly, why do we have a system that is first-come, first served where fractions of a second determine an aircraft's fate?
