virtual thumbs up (I know this isn't youtube) if you think if this was anyone else, someone who did not garner so much attention & did not have so much support, that did this exact same thing, the ban would still be in effect. just a case of Blizzard giving in to community heat, no matter what 'official blue posts' state.

Blizzard's doing what it is in its own interests. The world is not fair. There is much favoritism in the business world. But this is not a matter of justice nor ethics.Swifty endorses Razer products. It appears to me that Blizzard has a significant interest in maintaining a good relationship with Razer. Also, Swifty creates a substantial amount of WoW-related media. By reducing their action against him (and some of his cronies) to a slap on the wrist, they won't destroy a source of promotional content. In addition, Swifty will be even more of a Blizzard promoter.

He wasn't unbanned because of community support.He was unbanned because Razer had a little 'talk' with Blizzard.
