I disagree with some of what you said, Andy. While I do agree that Blizz should not force a customer to use an Authenticator, they should not be liable for any loss on your part by having an unsecure system/login.If Blizzard shipped an Authenticator with every Cataclysm retail box (or mail one to you if purchased for digital download) and a customer chooses to not use it, it's not Blizz's responsibility to restore anything if you get compromised. If a user takes the risk of not running an authenticator, they have to deal with the loss. If a guild chooses to take the risk of having members with unsecured accounts, they will have to deal with the loss. Your computer's security is not Blizz's responsibility and, in my humble opinion, they have gone above and beyond to help users that are compromised by the user's own actions.
