I can't understand the people who think he has done something wrong. I understand the argument that many people felt he should have expected to be banned, because with an item like that obviously Blizzard wouldn't have wanted it used by regular players. That doesn't make it wrong to use it though. Going against Blizzard's wishes is not unethical, or immoral, but is tempting fate. Blizzard can do what ever they want with their game, and if they choose to make an example of someone, then that is their choice to make. It is also a choice that has lowered my opinion of them.What I don't understand are the people who are suggesting he did something morally or ethically wrong. I've yet to see anyone suggest a single thing he did that was unethical. I have seen a bunch of self righteous people who seem to get a thrill out of his suffering. I'll never understand that mentality. It's the same people who get a thrill when they see someone else pulled over by a cop on the side of the road. It doesn't matter if they know the person pulled over violated the law or not, they are just excited that someone is getting smacked. It's a petty and childish emotion.What Blizzard has done here is well within their rights, but it doesn't make it just. They punished someone for their mistake. It is like walking into a grocery store and seeing a sign that said those little motorized scooters are free and available for all patrons, and then being kicked out of the store because they really only intended them for folks with trouble walking.
