* WoW goes overboard on user

Interesting stuff for you WoW players - user banned for using a programmable keyboard.

have already explained that the use of WINE might affect the software you use to detect third party programs. For example, applications run on WINE do not show any process lists because it isn't really Windows which is running underneath. Most likely all that would show is WOW.EXE in the procss list.

I have also apoligised in advance if using a programmable keyboard violates the TOS - but your TOS does not say anything about using such keyboards. Even manufacturers say that their keyboards are usable for World of Warcraft; see the Logitech page for their G15 keyboard for example (,CRID=2166,CONTENTID=10717 ). However, I have not even gotten an explanation for why I have been banned. All it says is "Witnessed and confirmed use of third party software".

If you are saying that playing World of Warcraft on Linux is using "third party software" and is illegal, then why isn't it in the TOS? And how can it be botting? Is the use of programmable keyboards botting? Is the repeated use of macro keys on a keyboard botting?
Apparently to Blizzard... everything is botting.
