Publicity is, well, publicity. Bad or good. In fact, I'd have never tried
many muds until I'd heard people complaining about how bad they were (on any
level, and including the aformentioned TFC). There are many who've tried
Legend after hearing bad things about it, only to become dedicated and
devoted players. I'll never be able to gather statistics about who didn't
log on because of a bad rap, but that's the dish of the situation. I'm not
condoning random banning on people to get your name out there, but if
someone does something to warrant a ban, and they increase your publicity
because of it... well, that's pretty much a win-win situation
