    Got it all figured out

    theory behind botters & gold farmers

    step1: create an insane gold sink in-game (think mystery orbs req for gnome/goblin rocket, repairs)
    step2: people want that mount -> demand for gold created-> artificial economy churned.

    result1: people who have the time to burn, spend more time farming that gold -> longer subs for blizz-> moar profit

    result 2: people who dont -> look for ezy cash.

    This in turn creates:
    1) demand for botting programs (which must be supplemented by subs)
    2) demand for gold farmers/sellers (which also require active subs)

    conclusion:
    -no incentive to remove farmers/ botters from game, esp when they're the ones padding your bottom line.
    -if they truly meant it, blizz should remove such gold sinks and replace it with stuff that takes the same amount of time as it takes on avg to farm that certain amount of gold.

    yes or no?

    Yes you are posting on an alt account because your other account was banned?

    instead of replying on whether the theory i postulated is defensible or not, you reply by

    1) making presumptions about the status of my banned account (which never existed)
    2) insulting my knowledge about botters
    3) not addressing my point about gold farmers

    way to go bro

    Another thread about botting? Don't we have enough here? We get it. They suck, there's lots of them, and Blizz is being half-assed about getting rid of it...blah blah.

    Maybe you should have asked more than the final question in your original post if you actually had a question in mind.

    To be honest, now I don't have a clue either. I read a lot about how annoying botters are and how they are damaging gameplay.
    Could you please explain why people bot?
