EA’s moved to address comments made by a Spore forum mode regarding banning users that caused “arguments” over DRM issues, saying the person involved doesn’t work for the publisher and was speaking out of turn.

“These comments are absolutely not true or in-line with EA’s moderation policy,” an EA spokesperson told Kotaku. “They were made by an over-zealous community volunteer who does not work for EA.

“Anyone who looks at the boards will clearly see that DRM and other issues are freely discussed on the Spore forums, alongside other topics about the game.”

So rest easy. No one’s going to ban you for fighting about DRM on Spore’s forums. Have fun.
