This botting is so unfair to honest players who just love to play the game. What has happened to integrity in this country? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. What goes around, comes around. Cheating will come back to them.

There are easier ways to combat botting that takes a softer approach, that tackles the very thing why botting is more efficient than legit playing.
I think a diminishing returns system, similar that to stuns in inferno now, would work great. Having something like, after 12 hours (or some other fixed amount) of playtime your, magic find, gold find, drop rate and exp gain drops by 15% for every additional hour (that would be clearly communicated via popup message). If you exit game it replenishes at the rate something like 25% per hour or something. So not to loose any efficiency you'd have to 'rest' like after 12 hours of playtime for 6 hours.
No sane legit players play for 30 hours straight anyway. Real people need to sleep and eat, etc. Bots on the other hand after like 16 hours would get 0 gold, 0 drops and 0 exp, if not logged off to rest. And also characters that still 'play' knowing that they don't get anything raises a 100% red flag.

Behavior detection sounds to me that something that will inevitably lead to thousands of false positives and tens of thousands of false negatives....
... oh, isn't that like Warden? That's completely Blizzard's style, let us do it!How lame does one have to be to actually believe the professional botters use the rmah.Very lame.
I may not be a software engineer but I do sale used cars for a living. I can tell you this, the problem does not take man power or technical expertise.
It would only take 1 phone call from Jay Wilson to stop the bots. These bots, they aren't a glitch in the system. They are here by design
