Anyways, anyone who used this glitch does not deserve to be banned. The developer who @#%^ed up should be fired/suspended and small punishments should be dished to those people. But banning is a bit harsh for doing this when it was SE's fault. Take a page from WoW's book and raise drop rates you stupid sh*ts. If you're too cheap to pay developers to constantly expand the game to be able to raise drop rates, expect people to lose patience and exploit your mistakes.
That's stupid as hell. They should be punished for using the glitch. I'll give you an example. If a Bank makes an error on your account and gives you more money. Do you use the money that you just got out of that error? @#%^ no. Because as soon as they find out, they are going to track your ass down and throw you in jail.
It's not Square Enix's fault if the playerbase doesn't even bother to report such an error. When it finally DOES reach the surface and all that was done was revealed. You sure as hell can bet this sort of retribution was coming. The short fact is, what they did was illegal and against the ToS. The instant they kept abusing it was their own undoing and not reporting it was their downfall. Blaming it on Square Enix is just like everything else. lol A patsy.
