bot and hacking still isn't promoted... so they will most likely get banned thanks to it being easier to spot in battle.net2.
Item farming is cool if it's legit, botting and hacking isn't something they are "cool" with.
Easier to spot? I have news for you this isn't a mmo where you can see the automation taking place. 4 Bots farming one room in 500 different games, and you would not see one of them. Never in the history of gaming has such a big target been placed on a video game to exploit it for real world resources. I told Bashiok, who's ever idea it was to come up with RMAH deserves a raise.
