    This was near the beginning of the article:
    I've been banned many many many times for "botting"
    I just don't understand that. I have been 5 and 10 boxing for over 11 years now and I have never, I repeat never, been banned ever. I know I have been reported several times, had people whisper me such all the time. But its never been a problem.

    They mention all but the last of their bans was overturned, so I shouldn't hold the previous bans against him. But it seems like hes really pushing the line or something.

    I echo this sentiment. It seems odd to be falsely flagged so many times, but they do say they've all been overturned, so... /shrug

    For all we know, they could be lying or exaggerating about that too, especially since we don't know this person and we have no idea what's happened up to this point—none of us possibly could. So, while it could be a "scary" story, it could also be a misleading story meant to gain unwarranted sympathy in an attempt to get people to rally and harass Blizzard, just so a legitimate ban could be challenged.

    I mean... this person on reddit could be similar to this.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa... Account creation date shows as June of '08. Don't be jumpin' the 10-year gun just yet.

    Myself included, though... I've been multiboxing, off and on, for almost 9 years now, and I've gone through multiple "slave" accounts during that time because RaF is was just too good to pass up. However, I don't think I've ever been teleported around, although sometimes when I lose follow on a single character I question whether or not a GM is f'ing with me.

    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    Yeah I'm actually not sure how long I've been multiboxing so mine might a bit of a stretch. I only said 11 years instead of saying BC which is when I started and that came out 11 years ago. Though I started with keyclone my forum start date should be pretty close.

    Shoulda been in discord when the person in question was trying to plead their case.

    Hmmm... interesting. I mean, that a GM might be checking out / doing tests on your account(s) there and then. When you mean teleport around, is it just say within 100 yards, or have anyone experienced beeing sent far away, like to the other side of the zone you are in, or even to a city?

    I said earlier i have let blizzard in the know of my farming rutines. But would be a shame if some new GM is investigating me while im killing mobs over and over pressing 1 button while i lie in bed watching a movie.

    I only come back and watch my monitors like once every 45 min when i farm. I included macros in the key remapping so any grey or green items get deleted, so i only keep the items im after.

    And if he did try to contact me, i wouldnt be able to see it: (unless he does it on my main character screen, i see that window from bed).

    I had my Text2Speech reader go through that post and play through my Logitech Business Speak detector. While I know it was not strictly business speak, it did detect a lot of Business Speak.

    The /dnd chat command might help if a GM ever tries to contact you to see if you are a real person, it allows adding a message that is sent back to the person whispering you. This is what I use:

    /dnd I am multiboxing, please send tells to my main CharacterName-ServerName

    Jamba does have whisper forwarding, which would be a better option if you already have that addon installed.

    Personally I would never be away from my main while farming, I think thats too risky. If you're watching a movie find someway to do it from your computer chair.

    If this is even half true, I'm surprised you have any accounts left at all.

    -------------

    Never been banned for "botting" in over 10 years of multiboxing WoW but I don't farm much of anything. Never have as it bores me.


    Accidentally merged two posts I didn't mean to. First reply is Jabberie; second reply is MadMilitia.
    Apologies.
