6. Client Scripts, Botting, Triggers, etc:
As above, spam is illegal, but on occasion one might get stuck where their
scripts hit a bug and send a lot of commands to the game. If this occurs
immediately disconnect yourself (eg: /zap for MudMaster users) or just
close down your client or hang up the modem, then fix the problems in your
script, and then re-log in. Writing scripts/testing scripts in a crowded
public area (ie: MedLink, or the center of Medievia town) isn't advised.
Setting off people's triggers is illegal. This means that if you say
anything or room anything that shows something such as: you are either
hungry or thirsty, you are doing something illegal and are going to get
yourself in trouble.
No triggers or other automated forms of combat. Any script that benefits you
in combat is illegal. Read Help TRIGGER
