    Banned: To reply or not to reply to email?

    So the situation was, i got banned using bot supply's Poeidon Bilging. Prior to my ban i created a ticket to YPP and had the following reply (posted below). Question is should I provide this information or not? What do you guys think. In my opinion, I would've replied with a witty comment and tell him to f*** off but let's hear some of your opinions.

    Not to cause any panic or anything, I would stay away from poseidon for now. Many many of my friends have been banned using this, ON the same day

    Tell them the truth. Most likely way to get unbanned is if they see you are a honest person who admits to using the bot. Just say you made a mistake and really want another chance to play etc. Has worked for me but it depends on many factors (past suspensions, complaints, they will check your account first to look for anything suspicious).

    Continuing on with this, I recently received a message from OM Hera concerning the matter of bot usage(poseidon) which got my banned. Hilarity ensues.

    And this is my reply,

    I haven't used any other third party software. I do not understand why a simple decision is made complicated by wild accusations with no evidence provided in the case by the Ocean Masters. The failure to provide any proof regarding the use of other third party software--excluding the bilging bot which I have clearly depicted in my previous message--demonstrates that the claim made by you(OM Hera) is totally invalid. Despite your stupidity in the subject, I will continue playing Puzzle Pirates on a private virtual network.

    As they say,
    "Fair winds"

    so really the moral of the story,never give up and stop botting
