Well, I know a lot of games I play, for some reason, seem to have a lot of trouble keeping people banned. Despite trying Comp IDs, and IPs, and such, I know Proxies, and other things can fool those.
However, keys tend to remain a pretty foolproof method. My question is, mainly, would it be illegal to create a library, and release it, that gives a server a set of ban verbs that (hopefully) work right.
Essentially, the library itself would upload each players key, IP, Comp ID, ect, into a database server with world/export or similar. Then when an admin goes to ban someone, it looks up their key, ip, ect, in the database, and returns with all associated keys, ips, and comp ids, and bans them all at once from that specific server or game.
I think it'd be an effective method, but I am unsure on the legality of such a thing, is all.
