Yes, GM was surprised when I first asked him to ban this player for asking for money because he knew from past experiences that I just give people money when asked, and that I would ask them back things such as where they are from and how do they find out about the server.
Well, after the irritation cooled down, I said to GM, please don't ban this person. And GM said, you are just in a bad mood. And I was.
The thing is, it is dangerous for players to ask for money or items from someone who is actually in the position to give things out. This is how admin/gm can eventually become corrupted and start selling highly valuable items for real money for personal gain. I have had people whispering me asking for 1000 boxes of something they wanted and that they are willing to pay me through paypal. People have asked me for things like the Steel Collector (that level 380 Tartarus accessory) and willing to pay good money for it.
As a player, I have lots of things and I do give them out (for example, I have given out several sets of Spicy complete sets, I earned them myself from my days of hunting Spicy; I am retired Spicy hunter now). I have stuff from JP boxes that I have gotten using my own purchased MS, and I have given some of those to people out as well. Heck, I still have some of that Amadas things left in my MyShop and the Imperian things there that nobody seems interested in asking from me although I am waiting for people to actually ask for them so that I can get rid of them to clear up my MyShop inventory. I got those items from buying them when they were offered, but I don't want to take them out because they are timed.
The point is, I do give out stuff; I'm not trying to be mean, but that I don't want players to develop a habit of expecting admin/mods/other players to give them things. At the very least, this can be irritating. At worst, this can graduate to admin selling illegal items for personal gain. If that happens, the trust is gone. Having had the experience of cleaning up such a mess, I don't want to go through that again.
