The Politics of Banning

SOE recently banned several hundred accounts for "botting," the use of programs that play the game for you.

Mythic followed suit, banning several hundred accounts for using a "radar" program that let you find and kill other players that you normally wouldn't be able to see.

This situation reminds me of politicians when an election is getting close. They all try to show how tough they are on criminals--shrinking their food portions, taking away their TVs, demanding longer sentences, etc. And the primary purpose of this exercise is not to cut down on crime, but to score points in a popularity contest.
