The bans Blizzard is handing out should be sufficient-- the race to heroic firsts is time-sensitive so this will put the cheating guilds severely behind.

ugh...they weren't banned. They were given SUSPENSIONS!!!There is a frigging difference in the terminology.Learn 2 know the difference

...because the semantics are the important part of the story.Given the context, you knew his meaning. There's nothing gained or lost by someone referring to it as a ban, rather than a suspension. You can't log in. You're banned. Is it temporary? Yes. That makes it a suspension. Or a temporary ban.It doesn't matter.

@km you're an idiot
You know...the word "ban" just implies that someone's prohibited from doing or using something. By mere definition, the word ban doesn't require, or even imply, permanence, even if it's generally used for such situations. You'll do your blood pressure a favor if you save your anger at the words people use for when they're actually using them incorrectly.

@MattKrotzerDid you have a toon named Josin on the Cenarius realm for a while? There used to be one in my guild, and I'm wondering if it was you.

Not on Cenarius. I've never joined a guild on any server but Steamwheedle Cartel.
