I'm wondering if one of the ramifications of this settlement will be the permabanning of anyone who ever used the service.Think about it. Blizzard has all the records of everyone who ever used the service..not just the ones that the warden caught...there's nowhere to run...no way to hide.

I wouldn't want that. On the one hand, yes, I really hate it when people cheat like that. On the other.... It would creep me out knowing that if I ever use an addon which may someday be considered OP, Blizzard might ban me for it. Slippery slope. Let's just let the casual users of this go with a warning, and slam the heavy users.

Glider was not an addon, it was an external third party programThere are no third party programs that interact directly with WoW that Blizzard tolerate you to use, so it should never be a surprise if you are banned for using one

I don't see any mention that Blizzard received the financial records of the company. Trademarks and logos are one thing, but financial records and transactions are another. I'm not sure Blizzard bought the company as took away its brand. And truthfully, Glider has been off the market long enough to shred those records anyways.

@ImnickWhen I first started playing the game, I used an "addon" that would walk me wherever I wanted to go by simply typing in the command "/goto xx,yy" where xx and yy were the coords. I don't know if it was an addon or a third party program--- my boyfriend at the time had loaded it onto my machine because he used it, and I just thought it was a really enat feature. I was genuinely surprised when it got taken away. I'm not saying that ignorance of the law should be an excuse, but I also wouldn't want to log in one day and find my account banned for use of that "addon" way back in Vanilla. No one would. Anyone who got caught using Glider while it was around got what they deserved, anyone who got away, well... if they continue to cheat, they will get caught eventually. Let's let it go at that.
