Agreed. I guess I have a hard time getting too worked up about a GM's mistake that gave a guild 100 I.W.I.N. buttons. Frankly, I would guess that people are more concerned about people causing other people problems - things that Blizzard looks the other way for. Such as parking a mammoth on a flight guy or summoning stone. Or the Mojo bug. Or the bug to repeatedly farm certain bosses for a drop without being saved to an instance.Or closer to this case, people selling the in-game Arena services up to a certain rating. Or guilds selling spots for ZA bear runs.Would my managing to get an unlikely PUG slot with the top guild on my server be unethical, since the effect would be like the Martin Fury shirt - carried to achievements and gear I would otherwise have no access to?I guess that Blizz was able to easily isolate, target, and destroy Karatechop and some of his guildies - a small and insignificant group in a paying population of 11 million. But what about the ethics of Blizz ignoring so many other similar, and IMO worse, cases?
