Notice how Blizzard blamed it all on keyloggers and viruses despite there being no evidence this was actually the case. And when he asked them to look into they said they couldn't. More interestingly Blizzard seems to be unable to track some logins, so they're sitting on a security nightmare. There are plenty of cases where accounts are hacked remotely without compromising a computer, as was suggested here. Not that anyone here will accept they could be wrong or acknowledge that their accusations were pure speculation.
If Blizzard simply uniquely identified every item and could track them all then this wouldn't be an issue but allowing players to drop items for others is just asking for trouble.
Hang on a sec, saying that your brothers PC was compromised (which is consistent in 99% of all hacking cases) is pure speculation but accepting that Blizzard fubared security and allowed a hacker who played with your brother in a random open game to bypass their secuirty entirely is somehow less speculative??
And whats wrong with having an ability to trade items with my friends? Whats next, demands for bind on pickup items????
