Player receives Developer item in the mail, one-shots Ulduar

Question: What happens when an all-powerful and silly World of Warcraft tester/GM item gets accidentally mailed in-game to a daft player? The answer is of course that Ulduar, the current end-game raid instance, gets one-shotted. That's the story according WoW blog WoW Insider.

The player named Karatechop (a level 80 gnome warrior) and his band of vagabond guildies have been racking up WoW's incredibly hard achievements like nobody's business.

everyones been talking about this in wow the past week. but i believe its blizzards fault and the raiders fault. blizz shouldn't have sent the item. the raiders shouldn't have used it.

WoW Insider: Who are you?
Karatechop: I'm Karatechop, the Guild Leader of The Marvel Family on Vek'nilash-US.

There are postings on the net where someone purporting to be Karatechop says they work for Blizzard. I'm assuming this is not the case?
I'm not an employee of Blizzard. I'm not a hacke., I'm just a person who had a pretty tight regular group of people who liked playing WoW.

and how come the blizz dev/gm didn't notice he sent the item? or did he and hes not saying anything about it? hmm i know they can just .additem item number but come on someone at blizz must have messed up badly.
