Even if we can agree that Ensidia's Hodir kill and Exodus' Y0 kill was done in an equally exploitive manner (which I don't really agree with), the following is an exerpt from blizzard's exploitation page (http://www.wow-europe.com/en/policy/exploitation.html#be):"Factors included in determining the appropriate penalty:Whether or not the exploit is performed intentionally, maliciously, and/or repeatedlyWhether or not the exploit damages another character, their gameplay, the service itself and/or its economyWhether or not an attempt has been made to conceal the exploit's use"Note the last line. This is really enough for the difference in treatment, and all of you saying Ensidia would have gotten off with a slap on the wrist under equal circumstances are just speculating. The fact is that even if the exploits were equally wrong in blizzard's eyes, their own policy explains the difference in punishments.
