At the risk of being totally hated now!
I am going to add my two cents in here about these farms having been stolen.
As far as I am concerned the responsibility falls upon the leader of these coops. If they had not given their personal passwords out this would have never happened. Shall we blame the bank when our funds are stolen when we give out this very valuable information? I do agree those messages looked real. I also recieved one of those messages a long while back and I reported the message to GGS.
Come on now, everyone, I see so much blame being put on GGS for this and yet, it is GGS who has to clean up the huge mess that has been made. Does GGS have some responsibility in helping stop this from happening again? Sure, I think so, I do think that not allowing anyone to open a farm with any name resembling Big Farm or GGS for that matter would help to deter these thieving idiots who just love to wreak havoc on those around them. Some power trip they have, and it would stop them from having any kind of satisfaction.
So, please stop blaming GGS, they didn't do it!
