Blizzard Wields Banhammer

The Forums announce that Blizzard has banned over 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II accounts for Terms of Use violations. First violations have received 30 day suspensions, while repeat offenders have had their CD keys permanently banned. Specifics of why these bans came down are not provided, but the accompanying reminder indicates that this is about third-party cheats and glitch exploitation: "We would like all players to remember that abuse of unintended mechanics and/or use of third party programs is a violation of the agreement made when signing on to, and can subject your account to disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban of its access to the service. These types of activities can severely impact the stability of our servers, and we’ll continue to aggressively monitor in order to protect the service and its players from the harmful effects of cheating."

I covered that whole response in my "non-Valve" comment. Regardless it's kind of silly comparing userbases of several products, some of which are not even in the same genre for that matter. The resolution comment I don't really care about, I just don't want people getting the wrong idea from it.
The only non steam required product I talked about was D2. The others were all valve (or steam required) products.
