"A 72-hour ban isn't too big a deal"a 72 hour ban also comes with a Final Warning, so if some poor sack has gotten one, he's an F-Bomb in Trade Chat away from getting perma-banned. 72 Hour bans shouldn't be handed out as a first punishment, and only through diligent investigation should Blizzard be hitting people with that severe a punishment. Also. 9/10 people who receive bans generally deserve them, and try to play "Mickey the Dunce" when they get caught.

72 hour bans don't always come with a final warning

I remember the first month I played this game, I got a 72 hour ban. I was fascinated by the AH, and had amassed a small fortune buying and selling (about 3k on a level 16). I got banned for gold buying!I tried to appeal, but by the time someone got back to me, the ban had expired and I was playing agian. No apologies, no indication that they would change the automated flagging script that assumed I must have bought this gold, and as far as I know, I'm still on a final notice!If I had one wish, it would be that Blizzard make the process a little more transparent. Or at least translucent- maybe allow for something like an appeals process, and for people who are found to be false positives, a record cleanse so they're not on some "probably bad customers" list.
