Atleast they are doing something, i hate how Aion and Linage II are full with GOLD spam bots. And they are doing nothing to prevent that.

As for the exploit, nice how they don't mention the number of items people bought to get the perma bans.

"We want to thank the vast majority of players who became aware of the issue, responsibly reported it, and did not exploit it. However, a smaller group of players did significantly exploit it, each purchasing hundreds or thousands of these weapons. We permanently banned 3,000 accounts of players who substantially exploited it, and applied 72-hours bans to another 1,000 accounts of players who mildly exploited it."

As for swearing. While annoying, WoW has done the exact same thing even though it has a filter as well.

They are even giving players the chance to have their accounts unbanned if they delete the items they got from the exploit... but nice of them.

What about the 100s to 1,000s of poeple flooding the chat forums that got banned by mistake, like me. I never bought or sold karma weapons, have only 10 silver in my account on a lvl 10 character and still got a perma ban for karma exploit. I understand the ban, just dont understand why so many ppl got banned who should not have. Guild Wars 2 fail!!!! I am filing with the BBB to get my money back or get my account re-instated.
