We aren't idiots. We understand that probably nobody that is advertising to sell a Cypher Ring is actually selling one. However, due to people wanting it to be opened, we did. Now, the first time we hear of ANYONE getting scammed from a supposed Cypher Ring trade, guess what's going to happen? We'll shut down those too. Then, no character trades of any kind will be allowed.
In addition, if someone admits to not using a Cypher Ring and the person goes ahead with the trade, frankly, they are idiots and whatever happens isn't of our concern. We've made it quite clear that Cypher Rings are the only type of character trades that we allow, so I don't see why there should even be an issue.
