Submission + - EA bans gamer from Dragon Age 2 over forum post->

RogueyWon writes: "Kotaku is reporting that a gamer banned from Bioware's forums for an allegedly inflamatory post has been locked out of the (singleplayer only) game for the duration of the ban. This is a consequence of EA's backend systems, which link forum accounts to the accounts that players use to access their games. This would appear to be a worrying new development; while trolling forums has led to bans from massively multiplayer games in the past (arguably with some justification), the extension of the principle to singleplayer games, where an abusive player cannot affect the enjoyment of others, must surely be a step too far."
