Write rude things and you get rude answers. Simple as that. If you don't like to get answers like that, maybe you should have phrased your previous post differently? Because writing uninformed opinionated stuff will never lead to any fruitful discussion.

How would they punish an offender? Ask to get the addon removed from esoui? How would that stop it from being used? And how would that prevent the mentioned scenario of undermining game mechanics? Also what makes you think it would be easier to implement such a rate limitation system over setting an already existing flag on a function?

Just because some people know how to pick locks is a reason to open your front door so everyone can just waltz in and dance on your kitchen table?

What would you do when some random guy on the internet you never have heard of suddenly messaged you in private and asked you to add a function to access some internals of the project you work on? The answer should be pretty obvious. That aside there is a place to request such things.
