It's possible that Nexon has changed its policy in 4 months. But it's a lot more likely that they still haven't figured out a way to get around the character limit, and decided to just post the totals so they can have something to point to when saying "we ban thousands of hackers every week."
Our team was open towards creating multiple posts due to the character limit to list the names of all the hackers.
However, as stated in the original post, our policy change prevents us from releasing the names of all the characters that were banned to the public.
Can you explain this new policy? How does it benefit the game, the community, or the company, to keep the character names secret?
