PS - And yes I am aware that some people think puncuation does not belong immediatly before an end parenthesis, but I prefer a more programmatical approach to parenthesis, wherein an entire sentance could be denoted as an aside and yet not be cut off from its punctuation.
Sorry, couldn't help it.

I'm surprised that "wether" and "sentance" made it through unscathed, honestly.
On the topic of the original post: It is unlikely that the bank alt was banned for no reason entirely, and it was primarily done for reasons previously espoused in this thread. If it was banned for "economy exploitation", then something fishy was probably going on. If not, then send in your mass e-mails and hope that whichever Blizzard GM who receives it is feeling generous.
This is a big part of the reason I keep the guild bank on my own account and no one other than me has access to it.
We just locked down our guild leaders account as well because of the recent posts about guild bank bannings. They seem to be happening a lot more lately, or maybe people are just being more vocal about it. Maybe I just have not seen it, but has Blizzard actually come out and set some guidelines for this? Also, it would be nice to know if they plan on adding a guild bank feature in TBC. I know I loved what CCP did with EVE and the hangar system. Different hangars, different permissions, auditing, etc. It would only then be too easy to see which officer was dipping into the funds to turn some profit in real life.

Well, with the recent mass-banning gold prices went through the roof (high exchange rate). Combine that with guilds who by some accounts are spending 3K gold per day throwing themselves at new content in Naxx, the trickle down of BoE epics, what I imagine is an all-around rise in consumable use (demand for gold), an upcoming expansion with a new level grind, thousands players heading back to school, going away for/graduating from college (reasons to leave the game) and you have an absolutely ideal time to profit from scamming in WoW for real world cash without much to lose for getting caught.
