Seconding the kudos to Blizzard for their attention to accounts. Last week, my cable modem broke, so obviously I couldn't play WoW. When I logged back in after three days, it was early in the morning, just to check mail; I usually only play in the evenings. To my complete surprise (and some initial panic), I got a message when I tried to log in saying that they'd detected a change in my login patterns, and I had to go change my password.I have to admire Blizzard for putting a system in place that recognized me logging in at a different time, after *not* logging in for several days, and concluded that it could mean I'd been hacked. Kind of amazed me after I stopped to think about it. ^_^
