Crackdown On Multiple Game Accounts Leaves Some Honest Gamers Locked Out

Kotaku - Ma Hong (a pseudonym) spent at least 10 hours every day over the last 5 years playing the same old MMORPG. She put a lot of care and effort into each of her characters, so much so that they were considered well equipped by many of the top gamers in the game. Late last week, when the 38-year-old Ma attempted to continue her 5 year long tradition of online gaming, she was greeted by a notice telling her that her account has been banned. (PC)

Hopefully she goes outside some. 10 hours a day for 5 years is quite excessive.

Not only that but she hasn't worked for 5 years, so this could be a blessing in disguise.

How does this author know for sure that she wasn't involved in gold farming (thus the "honest gamers" title)? Did the author go to Blizzard to at least check into the claims? Or did he ask Chinese authorities about it? I'm not saying the woman in the story is lying, but I need more than one side of a story if someone is going to make a big deal out of bans.

If they're going to publish articles like this, they need more sources and attempts at solid journalism rather than what feels like a "look how compassionate we are"-type piece.
