Actually, a better real-world example would be to say, "while steroids have been kind of ignored in the past they're still illegal and against the rules of the game, so there should be better enforcement." Which has little to do with the existing crop of AH addons, which are not only not illegal, they're directly within the domain of the ToU. I can't just post auctions while I'm AFK- I have to say, "hey, post the stuff in my bags" by interacting. So the best real-world example would be something about the olympic committee arguing about whether or not really expensive swimsuits should be allowed in competition, given that they have a proven ability to improve time, but are not broadly available (and are not currently against the rules). Of course, that example also fails, because QA3 is broadly available.The difference is a botter can use a third party program to automate the running back and forth between AH, Bank, and Mailbox, and can continually shift from post to cancel and back without actually doing anything. Good third-party programs won't behave exactly the same each time, there can be enough randomness built into it to make it relatively hard to spot with automated systems.So yeah, "to you" that seems like the definition of botting. To me, it sounds like tomato is the very definition of baseball. We're both wrong.
