Bots. Why should an automated program have privacy? An automated program is not an individual so why can't the Game Master notify us of actions taken against an automated account? Automated programs aren't protected by privacy laws so how does it make sense for the GM to not tell us if the bot was removed or not?

To be specific I'm speaking of accounts that are automated from start to finish.

Once again ill restate what I'm referring to in the post your quoting I'm speaking of automated accounts not compromised accounts.


I think you may misunderstand as well. There really aren't any "automated accounts". The majority of the exploitative behavior is done on compromised accounts.

Regardless, the fact remains is we do not provide that type of information regarding another account.

Alright, I think this one has come to an end.

Just one note on the option to change the characters name... a name change does not remove it from friends and ignore lists or guild and arena rosters. If altered the name itself will simply update.
