Someone brought up the fact about an add-on causing a ban. I have to add here how about auctioneer? It is an add-on but if you use it to its full extent it could be a bot bc you can set pre determined parameters and buy out auctions. There was an article recently about a lvl30 something troll that would hang out in the neutral auction house with auctioneer running. Auctioneer would catch all the high-end low priced items being transferred from alliance to horde and vice versa and buy them out automatically. Now just bc the person is in fact in front of his pc playing solitaire or yahoo pool doesn’t mean it’s not a bot. But it is an add-on allowed bc Blizz. So it’s kinda a double-edged sword. Is it specifically a bot used to cheat no, can it be used as a bot used to cheat or quickly get what you want (in this case gold not levels) yes. So where is the line actually determined?

Just FYI, the Bottomscanner you are referring to cannot auto buy. At one time, it was a cause for bans, but cannot so be used now. However, I have uninstalled it from my system because I don't want to give Blizzard any reason to look at me funny.
