I'm relatively sure the addition for alliance names wasn't there the last time I used that feature two years or so ago.
Yes, things are often not written anywhere but still they are forbidden or common sense tells they are. There was for example no rule written that autorefrshers etc. were forbidden (and therefor nobody was punished before the rule was introduced) - but you assumed it is common sense not to use them. It didn't work because some people, I included, were not aware of the consequences.
Now the situation is vice versa. I assumed the well established alliance names - SkyConnect, Elite, WorldLink, Global Express etc. etc. - are not explicitely guarded but if a problem arises there is only one logical solution - you give the name to the people who are the usual founders and explain it friendly to the others. That's no accusation, but until some hours ago I was sure this is the way how it would work. I never even thought about an alternative to this.
My referring to the permanent alliance feature was also no accusation it's your fault. Of course it's not, because you didn't found the "fake" alliance.
However, there was no reaction to my post from your side so I thought I can, should and must refer to the posting because the permanent alliance feature would solve this problem forever and add other positive things to the community.
