More Proff Blizz does not care about fish botting
He cant even see his bobber from where he is standing..

Not intended to invite any more argument, but after you send in a ticket reporting a botter, the GM tells you a few things. I usually miss the GM, but even the typed response told me this...
1) 'Thanks for submitting this report'
- This implies a couple things. A) The ticket was read, so someone now knows besides you that botting may be taken place. B) Blizzard appreciates that you ticketed against this bot.
A+B mean you're doing the right thing in reporting them so keep it up! However, an invisible point that could be just as important is the last word in the line 'report'. This to me means that they are appreciative of the method you used, ie submitting a ticket, not complaining on the forums. This point may be in my head, but I recall a post on MMO where someone had their guild hacked, made a thread on the forum after a ticket had been sent in, and promptly had his posting rights removed on the forms.
2) 'We will look into it'
- This raises a couple questions. Why would it needed to be 'looked' into, in interceptr's case where a video is posted, with the player clearly not responding, unable to see his cast, etc.?
A) The shortest I can respond to this is there is likely some debated over what constitutes botting. Someone in my guild uses a mouseover macro for fishing. Is that against ToS? Is it so wrong to mouseover instead of clicking a line? In that case, are all mouseover macros against ToS? B) What proof does anyone have that it was a bot and not an antisocial farmer?Who can prove that the player wasn't sitting there farming himself and just not answering tells? Sure he was hiding, but I'm embarrassed when I fish, I hide! - Truly not much we can do even with a video.
3) 'Whatever disciplinary action is taken is only between Blizzard and the player.'
- IE we don't know how they proceed. This says to me that I have done my job and I shouldn't report that player anymore. It implies that Blizzard will take action against the player if it is indeed a punishable offense. This also makes me think that I probably shouldn't make a thread demanding to see a player banned. I don't like botters either, but what makes me think I should be informed of how Blizzard handles it... I'm not a GM... yet.
TL;DR Let the thread die, continue reporting botters in game. Although I'd love to see a thread about players who make deals directly with botters to buy the goods attained against ToS.
not content to just troll trade huh prod?
Just calling it how it is bro.
Don't know about you, but I can support claims with an assorted variety of logical, anecdotal and simply reasonable statements.
All i've seen you do on these forums is called "Ad Hominem". Simply put, you've proven that you cannot make a reasonable arguement, let alone back it up with claims. Do us all a favour and stop posting... as the ground gear says "Nobody Cares!"
Empirical? You bring Empirical to my forums steppes? you insult my threads, threaten my friends with MATHEMATICS AND ILLITERATE FALLACY?
THIS. IS. ENGLISH! /kick
and I'm not gonna bother to cite the sources. If you have any knowledge on popular scholarly topics such as english literature, latin or anything that requires literacy to understand, then its highly likely you'll get my ANECDOTAL references.
anecdotal is basically worthless
and so are your useless posts.
