[Speaking as a former MUSH Wizard, I can truthfully say I have met people who would be checking numerous items under the "because" area. [Particularly "blood, sweat, and tears" and "genital desc"] This was originally posted to one of the rec.games.mud.* groups, to the best of my knowledge. -- ed.]

The at are a bunch of...
power-mad a**holes
Losers with nothing better to do than MU*
Cold-hearted axe-murderers
All of the above
None of the above
I don't know
What's 'a**hole' mean?
@toaded/@nuked/killed/banned me
@booted me
directly lied to me
took away all my xp
scolded me
made faces at me
called me names like 'completely clueless utter moron'
I thought that they could take an infinite amount of verbal abuse.
I thought it was to okay hack at their server to try to break it.
Check here if you wish to use the usual, "I was just testing their security for them" excuse.
I love of sound of my voice, and assumed that nobody would object to my constant vulgar shouts.
I thought that my position on the helpstaff gave me the right to engage in behavior that would get anyone else thrown out.
Check here if "everybody else does it".
I very kindly let a banned player use my character to sneak back into the game.
I gave my blood, sweat, tears, and my left arm to that MU* to make it what it is today, and damn it, it's just a moral outrage that a mad emperor can do that to me, and I will spend the rest of my life seeking justice for that perpetrator, this to you I swear!
I really can't tell the difference between VR and RL, and assumed that someone who loves me in the game must also love me in RL, which means that it's okay to stalk them and make death threats if they don't return my love.
Check here if you were virtually sexually assaulted.
I was mad at/just broke up with...
my husband/wife,
my boyfriend/girlfriend,
someone who trusted me,
and used their password to log into their character and...
recycle all of their belongings.
obscenely redescribe all of their belongings.
destroy their reputation by breaking every rule I could.
I am really proud of the explicit description I wrote for my genitals, and I assumed that everyone would enjoy the sight of them in public.
I know those rules and policies I agreed to when I joined the game are really for everyone else, not me.
I tried to show the admin how he was logically inconsistent by calling him a "self-absorbed, hypocritical, power-mad little bastard who couldn't code his way out of a paper bag"
I was trying to make the MU* a better place.
I now plan to...
go from site to site, whining to everyone about how badly I was treated after I got caught.
convince all of my friends (3 in all) to leave their site, causing their MU* to shut down forever.
mail the site admin, informing him as a Friend of the Net that Nazis have infiltrated his site.
get a new character from another email address, so I can get back in and resume my obnoxious activities.
    Check here if you plan to wait a couple of months, hoping they'll relax their vigilance.
start a new and unique flamewar, about how unfair MU* admins are.
become a guest on the daytime talk show circuit
spend more time in RL
