I've copied and pasted this article to the front page of the guild web site where those who don't go to WOW.com will have a chance to see it. Spectacular Death was hacked this past weekend for the 5th time since the release of Wrath. Prior to Wrath, I only knew one person who had been hacked. Since Wrath, I've run out of fingers and toes to count those I know. I have now decided there is no bank access unless you can show me your core hound pup, which, I feel very strongly, defeats the whole purpose of having a guild bank. Might as well have a mule as we did before the banks because that's the only way you get things now, ask me or an officer. It's sad that it's come to this. I have no suggestions for Blizzard were they to ask me. Anything I could come up with, such as the random words you have to type in on some sites, has been explained as being unworkable for such a large audience. There would need to be a complete reworking of the economy to remove the gold standard for obtaining items. I don't know what would be put in its place and probably the game that we know would suffer dramatically. As long as there are people unwilling to do the work to obtain the rewards which enable them to purchase those things they want, there will be people willing to steal fake gold in a fake universe and sell it. "The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in our stars, but in ourselves."
