Mike Krause is hated and considered evil by many other people who run MUDs. Medievia uses Circle MUD code, which is shareware. Circle MUD requires that you list them in the opening page for the MUD if you use their code to build your MUD. Medievia does not do that. Granted, the code is heavily modified from the original, but it still has fragments and zones from the original. He won't give the proper authors credit.

This is one of many reasons why I retired from Medievia in 1996. I stopped playing and helping to build MUDs in general in November of 1998.
