From the Orange County Craigslist comes this:
I got my WoW account banned yesterday during the archaeology bot ban wave. I wasn’t a gold farmer or seller, never bought gold. I just botted archaeology because it’s a boring profession. I’m looking for a WoW Account Admin (WoWAccountAdmin@blizzard.com) to unban my account for $1000 USD. No questions asked – your anonymity will be preserved.
This is a serious offer. I live locally and can meet you in person wherever you like with cash, PayPal you money as a gift (non-refundable and non-disputable by me), leave an envelope under a tree, or pay you in any other manner you prefer. You will definitely get your money if I get my account back. You will have my full information – name, address, everything. Email me and I will give you my phone number and we can talk.
Given that this has appeared on some high visibility sites now, I think it’s safe to say his account is going to remain banned for a while. Assuming, you know, it’s not a clever plot by Blizzard’s internal affairs team to flush someone out…
Speaking of money, Blizzard is about to print some more.
