May 1st 2009 9:59AM See, I feel for Karatechop...that is, if he is telling the truth. To be honest, everyone claiming he knew he was "cheating" and should have spoken up is full of so much bull sh*t the menuer factory couldn't contain it. Honestly, to sit there and pretend like you would have acted any different is a blatant lie. Sure, the "right" thing to do would have been to question the situation, but temptation is often hard resist especially when the apparent consequence is unknown.
A Blizzard employee made the mistake and thus Blizzard should "man up" and claim fault to the situation. You, I and any Blizzard employee have no right or "claim" to judge Karatechop as if he's some juvenile who partook in actions we find "unfathomable."
If the lottery was rigged and you were accidentally provided the winning numbers, would you not play them?
If a proctor accidentally sat you right to close to the smartest student in the class, would you not attempt to cheat of him/her?
If, when a teacher handed you today's' test, the answer sheet was attached to it, would you not attempt using it?
If you found $1000 lying on the subway platform, would you announce the findings to if anyone spoke up to claim it?
and so on....
Each and everyone one have us has been subject to situations like the above and each and everyone of us has know the "honest", "truthful" and "lawfully good" direction to go, but did we? No, maybe sometimes, but not always.
So, I think it's about time all you "haters" who are obviously just jealous STFU and step off the flimsy high horse you've built yourself.
As for Blizzard, obviously you'll do what you please nor will you care about our/my opinion but in all honesty, if you are going to act like a child then I'll speak to you as one, and maybe you should "grow up" and become accountable for your actions whether mistake or not. A proper punishment for Karatechop would be a temporary ban, removal of gear/achievements, etc... A full ban of his account? Well, that's being rash. You claim to have the means of tracking our mail-boxes (to watch/catch those who buy gold) so why not pull up your records and compare them to Karatechops story before automatically assuming there was "foul-play" here. If in his position, you would have acted the same way.
