It sounds like an attempt to discredit the authenticators in a bid to prevent people from paying the $6.50 so more accounts are vulnerable to be compromised. EX: "Well Joe Snuffy got his account hacked and he had one of those authenticators. So why should I spend the money on it and still get hacked?"

Completely agree.Those bastards will do anything to keep enough around that they can hack. Honestly, i'm really hoping they ship cataclysm with authenticators, and make all accounts that are upgraded to cataclysm require an authenticator. and if you already have one and another is sent with your copy, who cares, deal with it, sell it to some1 else, hold onto it as a spare, also they have talked about being able to apply 2 authenticators to 1 account, so that could be coming some time soon.I have complete faith in my authenticator to keep me free from being hacked, along with all other means of keeping my login details safe. Anybody that tries to blame someone else is just kidding themselves, or as you put it, they're more hacker trying to destroy that faith people have in account security.The only people to blame for an account being stolen, are the hackers (for being the bastards they are for doing it), and the account owner, who obviously hasn't taken the necessary steps to protect themselves, and that includes buying an authenticator if you have to buy one.Do you think the whole account security crap blizzard have posted is crap? No Point? Authenticator a complete waste of money? I think blizzard would prefer to spend money on more development time, than spending it on departments to handle account theft, wouldn't you agree? So they will do what they can to help prevent it as best they can.
