http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/4023602/Raid_Finder_QA-11_29_2011#blogWould have been front page of the community site, and one of the main questions is "how does loot work?" This Q&A, and an associated FAQ were both reproduced on both WoW Insider and MMO Champion. If you read anything to do with WoW, you would have had access to the information, and if you didn't, you probably didn't know about the Raid Finder anyway.My response was to your note that "the whole thing has me concerned that I will get myself banned for doing something I thought was a fair part of the game," and what I'm saying was it's very unlikely that you will get yourself banned if you accidentally use a bug. LFR was definitely, obviously an exploit, directly against how Blizzard STATED the LFR loot system should work, and the people who did it were well aware of that fact.There's different kinds of "exploiting" - there's unintentional exploiting that happens because Blizzard doesn't notice something and it might have the appearance of Working As Intended - which Blizzard typically doesn't punish for at all, then there's the "grey area" of exploits where something will make a fight substantially easier than it's clearly supposed to be - generally where Blizzard takes away gear and kill credit but doesn't ban, and then there's exploits where people know they are doing the exact opposite of what Blizzard has explicitly stated, and now we know that it's in this case where we see the bans.
