Are False Reporters Being Sanctioned?

Lately, I've been reported a couple times in the arena over a PvP match without breaking any rules of the game. People seem to report for any reason like there are no consequences back. Are their accounts being sanctioned, because they seem to think that it's OKAY, when it is NOT OKAY.

I agree. Many accounts are being banned or suspended because of false reports of harassment, annoyance, etc. I hope KI can look into this and hopefully check the chat logs before they make the decision to penalize accounts.

It truely does not matter, most griefers in the arena make noob accounts so they can say and do as they wish, if it gets banned they just make a new one.

So far, I have never encountered anyone being 'punished' for false reporting; what happens is the person subjected to the false reports has to prove that it was False (happened to me personally in Arena).

It doesn't seem to be enforced. Guilty until proven Innocent seems to be the MO so far

People use false reports to harass. I hope they are being punished, because it seems like they're not. They do it constantly.

that would be Nice. but after 5 years of subjection to it (in Arena) I have yet to meet anyone who has or knows of anyone else that has faced sanctions for it.
