@27: Agreed. This is no different morally than cheating in Monopoly as far as I'm concerned; it's not like, say, conning people out of their retirement funds. But if you cheat at Monopoly at my house, I'll think you're a small and petty person for doing it, and I won't invite you to play again. Blizzard seems to agree with me on this point.That said, this is a website about a game, and in the relatively consequence- and morality-free world of this game, it's newsworthy when someone accomplished is shown to be a cheater. That's why baseball players testified in front of Congress about their drug use. This isn't even that big, of course, because there's no (or not much) money on the line here. But CNN ran stories last week about the highest-scoring Scrabble game ever; I bet they'd run another if the game was shown to be a fraud.
