Glider could have been useful to handicapped people who had a difficult time with repetitive motions.

There are lots of useful macro's and functions built into the game these days that make it a hell of a lot easier for disabled people.My friend recently had his hand crushed (don't ask) and I spent 5 minutes setting up some basic dps macro's and an "Interact with target" action button (In your keybind menu, though you need click to move enabled for your toon to move to the target) which allowed him to get into melee range and pew pew!Not saying there couldn't be more done, but they are catering a lot more without bordering on automation.

I have seen quadriplegics play WoW without a bot. Glider didn't help you play, it played the game for you.

No you haven't. Stop making stories because you don't approve of something, [insult deleted-AS].

Just because a product _may_ have non-infringing uses, doesn't excuse the product or company from potential litigation. Your argument has been applied to file-sharing services - I could use BT to share Linux ISOs, but we all know that there are a LOT of people who use it to trade music, videos, pron, etc. It _may_ have legitimate uses, but it also has a lot of illegitimate uses too.At the end of the day it boils down to: Glider was designed specifically to automate the game in a way which was excluded by the TOU. Just because it may also have uses to a small subset of users doesn't modify this fact.

I seem to remember MDY using exactly this argument at some point. Did it ever get as far as a court?

He may not have /seen/ said player in person, LandMineHare, but he does in fact exist: http://www.wow.com/2009/10/27/15-minutes-of-fame-quadriplegic-player-attacks-progression-raid/And all it took for me to find that was to do a Google search for "quadriplegic wow" and click on the first rest. I suppose those five seconds were worth it, no? :)
