So, I realize that the batcave was a recipe for disaster. At spawn, at mineshaft level, huge, it's just not a good idea. But I thought it could work. When people mine into it, they usually just seal it off and turn back, but this guy (who I'm fairly certain is Kexiang) didn't get the memo.
So, kexian's tower goes straight down to mineshaft level about 2 blocks from the wall of the batcave and starts a mineshaft. Obviously this is a problem. I was there when they first built it, and kexian dug through my wall, mined all the ore in the room, didn't patch it up, and left, right in front of me. When I RAGED at him through the chat, he was like "what?". I thought it would be ok to leave it at that, and warned him not to run mineshafts through the batcave.
I was wrong.
The first pic is the area in question where kexian entered my base. I sealed it off last time. I come back, and it's open again. The second pic is kexian's staircase up to his tower, about 5 blocks away from the entrance in the last pic. Mineshafts start from this room. The third pic shows mineshafts going from that room into my batcave. The fourth pic shows it more clearly from inside the batcave. The 5th pic shows a little bit of griefing done randomly to the batcave walls. And the 6th and 7th pic show that whoever did those things, also stole 1 1/2 doublechests of cobblestone (who does that?!).
When I confronted kexian about it, he insisted that he had an alibi, which doesn't clear him, and commented about the non-severity of what happened to me. "People come into my house looking through my chests all the time." "But they don't break your walls and steal anything." (Paraphrasing) "How is that griefing?"
I can't say with certainty that it was kexian without logblock, but he's obviously my prime suspect. He isn't aware of the severity of griefing or stealing, and has done the exact same thing before.
I am ordering a cease and desist for the culprit, and want to use this as a public service announcement for anyone mining near spawn. If you run into the batcave, just block it off and turn back. Don't steal or grief my base, because that is what I was trying to hide it from.
Hopefully in a few weeks when everyone is allowed to leave spawn, spawn will be a ghost town and this will never happen again.

Based on submitted evidence, I have issued a two day, temporary ban for users Kexiang and Killer913321. These bans cannot be appealed, but will be cleared in exactly 48 hours from this posting.
that is simply false accusation. i didnt take the cobble in the chest. and he couldv just told me to patch the 2 block hole after i left. i forgot while i was exploring through this awesome base.
I had nothing to do with killer...
While this does seem like an overreaction to you, kexian, and while you may not have been the one who stole my cobble (and come on, it's cobble.), you still shouldn't "break into" my base and mine stuff. The problem isn't that you didn't patch a hole, it's that you "broke into" my house, were mining stuff right in front of me while I told you to stop, and then left without cleaning up. It's the principle, not how much damage was actually done. A 48-hour ban may seem a bit harsh, I would have gone for a 24-hour one... but don't do that again and we won't have a problem again. You're the only person I've had a problem with on this server. Let's keep it a minor problem.
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking what you did wasn't *that* bad and that it didn't require this. While you may think yourself innocent, or that it wasn't your fault, the end result was what it is now. Hopefully in 48 hours we can forget this ever happened.

well jousis, im not saying you're wrong about the situation but your base is at bedrock level im assuming and its right near spawn. its the start of the world, people are strip mining like crazy and will run into your base they might not know its yours because its underground or something but if you arent gonna mine those ores by then, he did it but since you knew it was him you could have asked for it back
thank you deeteekaay. Jousis, you coulda just told me to patch everything up and give back the ores ( like 8 coal ) and that would have been that. I honostly didnt go to your base twice. I was helping shadow dig out a hella lot of cobble for his mob farm.
I'm feeling generous - I will shorten both bans to one day.
Thus, both bans end at 2 PM PDT tomorrow.

If you see this occurring, do not think that this is strange behavior - it is the job of an OP and helps ensure security.
Kexian, to lower any hard feelings, I left you a gift at your tower for when you get back
