This came from Argonaut. S/He didn’t leave an email address for me to contact them at, so I have to do it here.
Below are messages sent to me from a member of an alliance (planet coordinates & alliance name are not shown, however the meassages are real):

Argonaut: I havent been attacked yet but suppose this guy really does what he says and attacks me all the time, shouldn’t such behaviour be banned from Ogame(i am not making a point i just want to know if such behaviour is allowed)
Two things here. First, the common sense bit. Why would any want someone to join there alliance that was forced? You want team players to join your alliance… no people you bullied into it.
Second… this is against the rules for OGame. Contact a GO with the full messages (including coords and such). Any type of coercion is wrong. You can’t bully someone into paying you off so you don’t attack. You can’t “offer protection” by charging a monthly fee to no attack someone. And you can’t try to scare someone into joining your alliance.
