Oh, I see what you meant in that CFI now. No, the crime occurs at
the instant the message reaches the forum. The crime isn't in the
act of typing the message and pressing "send", which the game has
no jurisdiction over; only actions can be criminalized, and the
action occurs when the message gets to the forum.
