Just to say - Minimac, you must consider the option that someone used your account without you knowing. This happens a lot as far as I know. I can't even count the number of firends I have on RS whose accounts got "hacked" by "friends" or siblings. It is quite simple to NEVER get banned, I have playing since 2006 and have never had the slightest problem:
- never MENTION macroing in game at all: you may get banned if what you said lead to think you might use bots - it doesn't matter if it's true. And obviously, don't macro either.
- never attempt to bypass the language filter. If you use a basic swear word which is not targeted at anyone and it gets starred, you will not have any problem.
- never talk about under-18 subjects, race or religion: you'll always offend someone with that kind of talk.
- never ask people for contact details in the game, or anything that could lead to finding the person in real-life. As they say it themselves, Jagex will investigate all of this because they have so many under-age kids play the game. And yes, let's face it, they will report anything alarming or threatening in real life to the police, maybe even the FBI if you're in the States etc. I'm positive they are obliged to under minors protection laws and national security laws in most countries.
- never mention any non-Jagex website. At all. Not even Sal's or Zybez etc. Not even other MMOs.
If you are a paying member it is very unlikely you will be banned forever - you're paying, they need this!
