RossDagley from www.punksbusted.com forums is right
Clearflags is an additional modification that gives the user an additional advantage over players that do not have it. The 'standard' game does not have it in, nor do most mods. Clearflags is only acceptable where all players using it are on an equal footing. One player with it on a server full of people without gives that player an advantage. Full stop.
And Remember, if PunksBusted bans you via your screenshot, you will be banned ONLY from servers wich use PunksBusted master ban list.
I have never used nor heard of clearpoints until now. Can somebody post a screenshot so we can see what it does?
I have never heard of clearpoints before. Looks like a good addition to the mod and game, but until that happens, I would have to side with Punksbusted on this one.
Well thats not to surpising, they shut the thread down without even going so far as to replying to my thread with more than a drawn out anwer of your wrong were right deal with it.

[size=0]Ccanuck, this is not intended to be hostile towards you, but towards PB and PB-fanboys[/size]
it is included in the mod. however it is a bit more polished, as FH has transparent flags instead of circles.
this is just another reason why i don't like PB, or their fans. i've been kicked (kicked, not banned) because their system was messed up, i've been kicked because the server was not up to date, i've been kicked because the pos doesn't update itself the way they claim it will. on top of that it makes annoying noises and annoying text messages while i play. and that they even consider banning this gameplay-improving feat, instead of praising it... :uhoh:
every server has rules regarding TK. any player on any server hates TKs. they HATE being TKed, especially by artillery and the like. they shout "couldn't you see me capping the flag?" "look at the minimap, idiot!". but because dice got it wrong we can't see them on the minimap. and because this PB-fanboysite doesn't like the fact that the community solved it, and not dice, we can't get a better experience.... and this is no hack that is secretly passed from one individual to the other. it is equally available to everyone, and if the servers put a mirror on their site it would spread even faster.
this could be a tool for the admins to reduce tk. they should strongly encourage people to get either this one, or one version that shows flags instead of circles for those who still want the old feeling, to improve gameplay on their servers. instead they punish those who care about their fellow players....
and in case you wonder - yes i have a couple ideas of how PB should work, instead of the way it does.

I don't mind PunkBuster, it's good to be there, it scares and catches cheaters. But that Punkbusted crew start to play for God now. They think they got the right to make the rules and get people banned. Clearpoints is include in BFPro, would you ban them all? There are transparant flags in FH, would you ban them all? What is wrong with clearpoints, it only helps against teamkills, it really doesn't give any advantage. Well I don't care to much, if I get on that list because I used clearpoints I head of to another game. I am not going to stop using clearpoints because they think it's a cheat, which it ain't.
Bah , I hate punkbuster but I guess it works, not sure about how punkbusted acts on their website though :-/
