  23. What do you think about game cards in the trading market & is this a TOS violation/ They have hard cash value so Zynga Security is cracking down on it & yes it violates TOS / Nate says just dont do it, he wouldnt want to be on Zynga Security bad side.

Nate answered questions on scripts /Nate says there are alot of great scripts but  Officially dont approve them but look other way on some / They do talk about them / When asked about approving certain ones they are looking into it but need to check it out more.

Overall they did a good job of trying to answer alot of the questions, they were much better organized even though Nate had a bad hair day but he assured everyone that by the newt broadcast that will be fixed. The next episode of Mafia Wars Live Q&A is on June 1st
