Proof? Ample proof was provided a while ago (all posted on the old Getsatisfaction forum) that Doinnovation ploughed gems and advertised to sell ploughed gems among VN players. It’s all archived and leaves no question. Jona is very familiar with all of it.
Were there “Microsoft vouchers” to cover part of his purchases? Apparently, yes.
Did he post proof of spends for a tiny sliver of his gems? Yes.
Is Doinnovation encouraging others to plough? Yes, see screenshots.
Is Doinnovation posting that one can plough without any consequence from Flare? Yes, see screenshots.
Is Doinnovation posting video “from a long time ago” from an ID with over 200k gems that he won’t divulge, suggesting in open forum they are ploughed; but then suggesting they were all bought legitimately after being accused they were ploughed? - based on his own words? Yes.
Why is Doinnovation the subject of so much (self-inflicted) negative attention and scrutiny? See screenshots. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with rank or gameplay, and is entirely justified.
The bottom line is: players *hate* ploughing. The only ones who don’t think it is synonymous with “cheating” are those doing it, or those who are friends with the players who do. Doinnovation thinks players can plough (and even suggests they should) without any consequences, and that Flare will merely turn its head. But somehow this issue continues to emerge; and somehow Doinnovation continues to be (put himself? See screenshots) at the center of it.
So far, the only major loss is to the game and the developer/publisher, which has lost players, revenue and carries a somewhat sullied reputation in the minds of its players (and ex-players) because of this practice and how it - and those behind it - have never been fully addressed.
