    These questions get asked every week, so some answers for those of you asking them:

    - 72 hour bans are from player reports, suspected botting, or suspected abuse of the economy
    - Permanent bans are from multiple offenses, gold-selling, or detection
    - Blizzard piles up bans for days/weeks at a time before banning everyone at once. Its a scare tactic. If there was a banwave, you would see hundreds of threads, not 5.
    - You CAN appeal the 72 hour and permanent bans, and in most cases get the account back. I don't recommend appealing the 72 hour ban because in some cases it will lead to a permanent one if they investigate your account.
    - If there is an HB or GB detection or banwave, WE will tell you and disable HB and GB.

    Isn't clothing optional when gaming from home?

    Sorry but I don't trust this. Too easy. You must shut down HB/GB and investigate what's going on, just to be careful.

    It can't be also a preliminary banwave leading to a massive one. Like with eBot.

    You don't have to trust it, but its the truth. Its been investigated, and its the normal ban cycle that happens every few weeks. If there was something different going on, every single person here would be permanently banned.

    All okay, calm please, same bans on Pirox-Mimic etc.
    Not all just a part.

    My 15 bots on HB are alive.
    Realy looks like clearing of players reports database.

    Also, I have 4 accounts including my main that are still up and running, and have been for the last few weeks. If I didn't feel safe, I would've shut them all down by now.

    Sorry, but Jujubosc, the famous dev of eBot have used the same words.

    If you take care of your customers, I'm sure that you have tested this: with one legit wow account, you send a "bot" report concerning a second account, and then if you get a ban AT THE EXACT SAME time as the other ones, we know that Blizzard's claim detecting unapproved software is bullshit.

    Now, if you think you have enough experience to read into Blizzard's mind, I won't believe you.

    Ban waves are easy to recognize. Unless the forums crash due to massive traffic, theres no ban wave, Just the normal bans from reports and such.

    Ive been through a few major ones in the past few years and never seen a site deal with the massive traffic.

    Total bans: Glider: 1 - Ebot: 5 - HB/GB: 3

    There are a few more suspensions than usual today but its been very quiet in the ban forums since around the time of the last patch. After the number of bans you have suffered, you are understandably scared. I doubt there is anything we can do to make you feel more secure. Can I suggest you disconnect your bots for a few days and see how you feel then?

    Obviously, my bots are disconnected now ;)

    I'm not scared losing a wow account, it's a game ;) In fact I am more a bot tester than a wow player ;)

    But you should do the test, I suggest, an may be learn something...
