Personally, I still think multi-boxing gives an unfair advantage in PVP and should be banned from the game DESPITE Blizzards stance on the topic....you try surviving perfectly synchronized shadow bolts/chain lightning/. Doesnt seem fair. Just an opinion...let the flaming begin .

I really don't see how getting insta-gibbed from 4 multi-boxing shamans is really any different from getting insta-gibbed by 4 people playing 4 different toons. 4 on 1 will almost certainly kill you every time, it doesn't matter the composition. Just because there's now a 1 second gap in some of the casts, it doesn't increase your survivability.I just don't see how it matters in the end. If one guy running four toons kills me or four guys running one each kill me, I'm still dead. The fact that the four separate guys can't 'perfectly' sync their spells isn't going to save you.It's a moot point anyway. That guy is paying four times as much as you, so Blizzard likes him four times better... ;)

In BC, this seemed like a bigger problem to me... now, when I get insta-gibbed, it's usually by a single player. 4 is just overdoing it.

Watching him PvP, I'd say that multi-boxing is only unfair if you try to go 1 on 5 (just like any other well-coordinated team). The fact that they're geared from instance drops probably makes them formidable as well.
