We're not kidding when we always say account security is very important to us. If we found any evidence that even a single account's login information was stolen from us, or our databases were otherwise vulnerable to attack, we'd inform our players and do whatever it'd take to lock everything down.
At this point, after over two weeks of everything that's going on.... You're not going to get through to these players. They have one of three things going that will prevent them from understanding:
1) Incapable of determining any personal fault.
2) Refusal to listen to those who are trying to help them.
3) Stern mistrust in Blizzard and other on-line companies.
I'm seriously forming the opinion that a large portion of this backlash and misinformation concerning the "hacking" situation boils down to the on-line play only situation. Claiming and pretending to be the victim of the big bad system because they have to play on-line.
I'm not trying to derail the thread in any way, but right now, after all of these threads and all the whining and screaming concerning not wanting to get an account security program/device (one that is at cost or free)....
Not to say that some people didn't legitimately get hacked, but there is too much of a vocal backlash on fan sites and this forum to think that it's anything other than a grand grouping of QQ concerning the on-line only function of the game.
