Oops, One Slips by Blizzard
Recently a gold seller add popped up in the Blizzard forums in their ad banner rotation. While it was quickly removed it left a lot of players wondering what was up. Apparently it was a technical glitch and not a change in Blizzard policy, thank goodness, as Bornakk explained in the forums.
Recently, there was a temporary error with our forum advertisements that caused a gold-selling ad to be displayed. At this time, we have resolved this error. Our stance, which is fully explained in the statement below, remains firmly against the buying or selling of gold, and we may take action against accounts that are involved in these activities.
