This is sheer madness. Ban the dupers, I totally agree. But banning innocent opportunists who just want to play the game legitimately? That's absurd.
Shame on you, Blizzard. Shame on you. D3 is pretty much dead. If not because the economy is shot, then because you're destroying any and all customer loyalty/support you had left by banning innocent people on shaky ground at best.
I'm not even affected by this crap and you're making me sick.
Minus the "this game is dead" part, I pretty much agree. They handled this whole ordeal atrociously, and while I wasn't effected by it directly (minus being locked out of the AH and having to deal with the inflated prices like everyone else), it offends my sense of equity as well.
Had I decided to sell some gems that day, and had my account suspended, then had my gear account bound for absolutely no reason except using their AH to sell gear, they would have very quickly found themselves short one customer. I'm still speechless that they thought this was a better way to handle it than a simple 4-6 hour rollback. Having spoken to several software engineers, I've reached the conclusion that for reasons unbeknownst to me, they simply couldn't effectuate a basic rollback, because that's the only thing that makes any sense.
