Jul 8th 2010 4:23AM No. You've gone and fallen for the Blizz-Bullshit-Machine there.
Hackers and Botters are two VERY different communities, with two VERY different aims and goals.
Botters - there a numerous bots out there all working and all keeping your accounts quite safe - spend their time flying around, gathering, then selling to you on the AH for cheap prices. Then, when they've made a shit ton of gold, sell it on to either a website (who will sell to you) or direct to you.
Hackers - these are usually talentless script kiddies (mostly located in the *shock* USA). Yes, they'll steal your accounts if your retarded enough to click a link in an email, or download addon_name.exe and run it. To be honest, if you get your account stolen by something like this, you almost deserve it.
Also, whilst I'm on the subject - Most public bots are actually created and hosted in the USA or Europe. There are private bots from Asia, but not nearly as many as Blizzard will have you think.
Jul 8th 2010 4:19AM Has it occurred to you yet, that the reason the bots aren't selling as many mats now, is because there will be a MAJOR rush for them when Cataclysm is released? I'm running 4 bots nearly 24/7 - they're all still here, NO-ONE got banned because of the 'updated' not 'new' warden released in 3.3.5 - there was NO ban wave and you're all a bunch of tards for thinking otherwise.

Jun 8th 2010 11:02AM Blackbook signing in as well - That's 'blackbook' from the glider (and various other) forums.
This post, although nice to read, fails on a few levels and seems sugar coated for a certain market rather than documenting the hard facts. I appreciate Amy's attempt at trying to give legit players an insight in to the continuing legal battles in such a succinct article, but perhaps checking the facts or at least attempting to see the whole picture from both sides of the community before making such elementary mistakes may prove to be useful for future blogs.
It's a shame the wow.com reader base isn't a little more educated, alert and / or intelligent.

If you want to listen to a 45min clip of the 9th circuit meeting, go here :
You get to hear MDY's arguements, and Blizz's fail arguments also. If they write ''users must brush your teeth'' in the user agreement, and you play the game without brushing your teeth, you're in breech of copyright! lol...made me smile.
I just hope that Donnelly gets off personally for goodness sake. This is a game, and no-one deserves to owe Blizzard 6-trucking-million dollars over it.
Jan 8th 2010 12:41PM Oh fuck off do they.
They're milking a cash cow. End of story. I dont need some little dongle to keep my account safe. If morons like you and other fucktards wern't so retarded, then we'd all be safe from this shit.
Don't go to www.wow-pets-from-blizzard.net and enter all your details, and don't run 'exe's that you don't know who made them. simple.
Jan 8th 2010 1:04AM urrr....your fault for downloading or going on some dodgy site...unless your parents/brother/friends really hate you.
Fact is, you got your account compromised. YOUR fault. Not theirs.
dont be such an idiot in the future.
Jan 8th 2010 1:01AM Well, I hope these are going to be 'free' now then.... as far as i can tell its just another cash cow they're going to rip. I'd tell them to fuck off personally.
