WoW Scandal Follow-up

Wowinsider has a follow-up to the recently revealed scandal involving use of an imbalanced developer-only item by a World of Warcraft player (thanks nin). They spoke with the player who possessed the item in question, confirming his account was permanently closed as a result. They also have an interview with the player who explains the odd circumstances where Blizzard restored some of his guild's items after a problem resulted in receiving the dreaded "Martin Fury," but he also explains why he assumed this was legitimate: "It was in-game mail from Blizzard. We just assumed it was something they sent him. We didn't think it was real. I honestly thought it was something Blizzard gave to one of Leroy's alts for four months of ignoring the problems with his account."

how did the item end up being set to a regular player?

He had probably applied for an item restoration, and the GM made a typo in the item ID.
