i understand where this comes from, but i think the choice of punishment is too harsh.

the person was automating gameplay by using a keyboard that allowed complex operations to be performed with single keystrokes.

then he played the game in a condition where he could gain something by just pressing a key over and over.

at the same time he watched a movie. effectively he was playing the game in automated mode.


of course there is no reason for banning him. a simple suspension for a month would be sufficient.


the story seems to have little to do with wine (people have played from wine in the past) and more with the automated play made possible by the keyboard.

yeah dude, they didn't band you for using wine, they banned you for managing to gain experience in the game without actually playing the game. Just like binding mwheelup and mwheeldown to shoot is illegal in CAL for cs. Please don't try to make this seem as a problem brought about by wine, Linux has very strong community support, but that strong community is also smart.... hopefully
