Sao Paulo Challenge Ghosting
I assume everybody knows about the incident that happened, but in case you don't, read this before continuing: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sqg4bv
This morning, the info about Ceree being allegedly ghosted during the tournament was being discussed in a few Italian Facebook groups that I'm a part of, with some people saying they had logs that proved it. However, nobody posted those anywhere at the time, nor did anybody send those to Zelda immediately (as far as I know). I tried to get a hold of those to see for myself whether the accusation was true, but didn't manage to.
However, in the meantime, multiple discussions about the incident had sparked in the groups, with an alarmingly large amount of people saying we shouldn't say anything about this, some people saying that ghosting isn't "specifically prohibited" in the rules, and a lot of the "snitches get stitches" mentality, which was frankly appalling.
When Zelda communicated his decision on the matter about an hour ago, some people's first reactions were along the lines of "Whoever sent messages to Zelda is a piece of shit".
It's honestly disgusting that so many people thought that hiding or covering a clear cheating incident was the correct course of action and it's an embarassment to the community.
There will always be someone that cheats. The community should try to ostracize cheating, not defend it.
