And it's a long one. just want to write out my thoughts.
It seems that there's been a rise in reports on vote abusers recently. Now is a great time for GMs, both new and old, to go practice some good ol' investigation skills and start enforcing the fairness aspect of the game (in this case, making sure players get their stuff fairly and aren't breaking the rules).

If you're a particularly new staff member, and you aren't yet recognized as a competent GM, tis the season to prove your mettle. Be more engaged with players ingame and take maybe 10 minutes out of your gameplay time to !spy a couple of suspicious people.

If you can't go ingame for whatever reason (in my case, lack of stable wifi + traveling), get involved in the xatchat or the forum.
Most if not all GMs should have a network of friends who are normal players ingame. Ask em once in a while if they've seen anyone suspicious or to help ya crack down on some badguys, if they're willing to volunteer.

I personally have a guild that volunteers their time to helping out. I just believe that involving the community is an excellent idea.

Keep in mind that players should be innocent until proven guilty, if they have been reported. There have been some wrongful bannings in the past, and it usually stems from hasty actions. Get all the facts then make a decision.

If you're reporting someone, try not to tip them off that you're doing so. They may log off, escape, go on a new character, or even just go on a new account altogether and dodge the banhammer.
