Linux Diablo III Bans Follow-up

Blend Games has a follow-up to recent reports of Linux users being banned from playing Diablo III on Battle.net. They cite an unlinked post on the WINE forums from a user who claims to have been refunded the cost of a second copy of the game after being apologetically informed by Blizzard that his initial ban for playing the game through WINE was erroneous. Unmoved by the retraction, the site's hash criticism of Blizzard over this continues unabated.

I peruse the Blizzard D3 forums every now and then (they are a hive of scum and villainy, of course) and there have been more than a few threads of supposed Linux users claiming to have been banned. Is it true? It wouldn't really surprise me, Blizzard has been doing banning in waves, obviously automated, and who knows what the criteria is.

All that said, these ban waves seemed to have missed the millions of botters out there.

D3 is better now than it was at release, by far, but no one is going to honestly be able to claim you have total control of your character data. Even a legitimate Windows based player could be banned/hacked/rolled back or whatever at any time, and lose hundreds of hours of playtime.

I'm pretty much done with the game, in my opinion, I have 4 of 5 classes cleared through Inferno, zero RMAH use, no GAH use aside from stupidly buying some tomes for crafting(which is still a joke), working on my Wizard occasionally with the few people I know who still play.

I am starting to really get into Torchlight 2, and it's amazing how good TL2 is in so many ways. Obviously the TL2 guys lack the D3 budget for art, but it's very playable, and really nice with a few mods installed, even before GUTs gets released.

Cannon/Summons Engineer + Berserker Dual Wield Frost Build + Undecided Embermage and Outlander, let the next RNG game begin, only this time I do have full control of all my character data.
