Personally, I think the banning results from Blizzard's inability to take the responsibility for the trouble that it caused. If someone who runs the game gives you something like this after an inconvenience lasting months, it's only logical to assume that the item was meant as a form of compensation. This whole controvercy has really started to make me pay more attention to who I'm paying to play a game that can be horribly unfair...

This is ridiculous. I understand Blizz rents us this game and everything, and has an iron chokehold on its content, but this is damn near dictatorial in how they are handling their own mistake.When WoWinsider covered the DK Booty Bay boat glitch, I made the lives of nearly 20 Horde miserable before being contacted by a GM and being told to stop, and that it was a bannable offense. So, I stopped.Why was this same consideration not shown to Karatechop? Is a dead boss with loot pixels that can be removed at a later time REALLY more serious of an offense than the wasted time of 20 actual players? This boggles the mind. Blizzard could have easily said in a tell to K, "stop that, until we remove the item, you'll face a permaban." And then gone ahead and removed their ill gotten achievements, their ill gotten loot, and said no more on the matter. Instead, they banned a loyal customer and proved to me that their time > ours.This is like taking your little brother to an R-rated movie against your parents wishes, and having your parents find out...and then grounding your own brother for a mistake YOU made but refuse to own up to. Maybe that's a weak comparison, but I believe I've made my point.
