Justicar's Opinion - 026 DB vs Androc_

The Justicar received the initial complaint from a member who had received an anonymous emailing soliciting them for information. The email noted they were rogue and requested if the sender could have control of their dossier for their own use. Using the header of the email, the IP address of the sender was obtained, and then by searching the Brotherhood database, it was matched to Guardian Androc Valabra. In addition, the Justicar was able to find a similar complaint from a different member in his archives. This emailed had been signed by its sender using the name "Thaladred". Checking the history outline of the defendant led to the discovery that this had been a name he used in the past.

After finishing his investigation, the Justicar determined that the defendant's actions were in conflict with the Dark Covenant, and that the complaint had merit. The Chamber of Justice was convened, and the notification of charges were sent. The defendant replied with a guilty plea within an hour. The Chamber of Justice then gathered to discuss sentencing. Looking into the defendants past, the Chamber found he had been punished by the Headmaster for a Shadow Academy infraction, and also had a Letter of Reprimand on file for improper use of another members administrative options. Combined with the current case, the defendant was clearly a recidivist, and therefore a harsh sentence was decided upon. Androc Valabra was demoted from Guardian to Apprentice, will receive a second Letter of Reprimand, and will serve a probationary term of one year.

Gaining access to the dossier and administrative options of other Brotherhood members is absolutely unauthorized. The Dark Covenant clearly states, "No member shall misappropriate the dossier of another member" [Section 8.06(o)]. Due to past issues which have had unfortunate consequences for the Brotherhood, this issue is treated seriously by the Chamber of Justice.

Signed and Sealed in Justice,

Dark Jedi Master Kir Katarn

Justicar and High Protector of the Dark Brotherhood

Jac beat me to it, that's exactly why. This is another great time for me to remind everyone to read over the Dark Covenant:


You know you want to...or at least you should, do it!


It's because the Covenant section that forbids misappropriation of another member's dossier is called "Hacking."

Section 8.06(o) - Hacking: No member shall access, without the proper permission and authority, any unauthorized section of the Brotherhood website. No member shall misappropriate the dossier of another member.

It's not the everyday meaning of words that count when looking at legalesque stuff. :P

Oh dear, i have to say I am disappointed with Androc's actions. I myself have gone through this before so i can only hope he's learned the error here and does his best to make up for it.


Just out of curiousity, but why is the first charge noted as attempted hacking? He didn't try to break the website's security code or anything did he? Just illegally tried to obtain dossier information through email, no? Certainly what he did and if someone tried to knowingly break the site's code are both of equal wrongness, I just wonder if there shouldn't be some sort of seperate charges for each to avoid confusion; as when I first read the charge I wondered if this was in relation to the website issues of late. As I said, merely curious...

What's the clapping for, Krandon? I hope you aren't applauding his actions :P
