Perhaps not after today.  OSI has supposedly banned a large number of users
for unspecified violations of their ToS (Terms of Service).

It will be interesting to see what sort of effect, if any, this has on the
quality of the people in the game (if they've supposedly removed such a
large number of the worst people.

Well, some may now be gone...  Supposedly (I have no verification of this,
at this time) a number of the banned people had houses with "co-owners" who
were not banned.  These houses have had their access lists deleted.  Perhaps
these people (and those who were banned) leaving, will cause a noticeable
change for the better.
