/report turned off

There are occasions to leave a report for the server owner, obviously. What is not obvious to me is why the /report command would be disabled?

Is it because an owner doesn't want to be spammed with nonsense? Or doesn't want to be bothered with feedback?

Not a serious issue, but I am curious.

Spiralzone. Got killed unmercifully. Many times. Still loved it.

Found it again a few weeks ago and did much better, but I still struggle to stay on the + side.

1. Good sport, good shot, helps noobs 2. Belittles noobs Then there are those that are worse than a "bad player". Recently saw one impersonating a regular on Missile War, then went on a team killing spree. Flag shopping: I am usually on the bottom of the score list, so I will sometimes flag-shop for...

My call-sign: Back when IRC was popular (maybe it still is?), I joined a channel called "Heart Fans". I kinda like the band. The members of the channel said I had to have Heart-related nick, so I chose Bad Animal. (Magic Man and Barracuda were already taken, and I didn't want Dog or Butterfly.) I ke...

Your comment about the keymapping being unintuitive made me go back and try it again. I didn't know you had to hit 'enter' to select an item before changing it.

The last time I used the joystick in a flight simulator, the buttons and all worked. (Not BZflag related, but that wasn't in my first post, either.)

The buttons don't work in BZflag. Is that related?

Thrustmaster Top Gun Fox 2- Can't map buttons?

Subject kinda says it all. Do I need to 'bind' them in the conf file?

-edit-
I guess I should say this is on WinXP home.

I might try it on my son's linux machine.....
