I was banned for using 3rd party software--an accusation that took months for Blizzard to retract and apologize for.However, when they finally did, they hit me with another accusation: creative geometry. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what that means...

That's exploiting the way the world is put together to get to places you aren't supposed to go, such as the Karazhan basement, Old Ironforge, inside Stormwind, in Mount Hyjal, and the like.Bottom line: stop going where you aren't supposed to be.

Except that I wasn't engaged in that kind of behavior. They accused me of "creative geometry" while in the Dire Maul Arena, kiting one of the rares that spawns there. The initial assumption by the GM was that the event's teleportation to the center of the Arena was a movement hack of some sort, and therefore they accused me of using 3rd Party software (lol @ an employee not being familiar with the mechanics of old world content). When they realized they were wrong, after several emails to Account Administrators, they apologized for the initial accusation, but continued to support their decision of guilt with the "creative geometry" explanation.I am 100% sure nothing I did was wrong, and so is Blizzard, but I understand why they must back GM decisions the way that they do. If they themselves acknowledged weaknesses in their own system, one can only imagine what kind of havoc could ensue.
