Hey Wonderland Mods,
Not that I play on Wonderland maps often, but recently I found out that whenever I try and join one of your servers I get automatically banned. This was confusing because I have never done anything wrong on your servers and when I looked into it the reason was "[SourceSleuth] Duplicate Account". It really is not the worst thing if I never play on these servers again but a ban due to a possible error is just a bit confusing.
Thanks, DragonMeister

I have been told the reason why I have been banned for a duplicate account is likely due to the fact that someone thinks I was using aimbot aka "hacking" on some other account. The only account I have ever had on Steam is one right here: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198253739382/

Right and how would I report someone using my IP address without my permission? If you do not mind me asking.

I believe someone has spoofed my IP address (I looked into this once I saw your comment and it is completely illegal, it is like they stole my digital identity). So needless to say being banned from game servers may be the least of my worries.

I talked with the IT help desk at my campus and then the campus internet provider APOGEE and found out that they use a dynamic IP address which means that my IP address was likely not spoofed and it was probably some kind of unlikely error that occurred.
