does anyone find it strange that diablofans.com releases "datamined" information to the public and receives no action from blizzard? funny how blizzard sent diablofans.com a bunch of items to give away for christmas in their sweepstakes with this going on.
You'll have to ask them. Nobody here will be able to tell you why.
But maybe, just maybe, it's because they cannot know whether or not we datamine the info ourselves or just get the datamined info from someone else (cause, you know, it's the internet?).
The info is just reported as news (we don't tell people to use program X to datamine stuff), and they know it would be unfair if they didn't allow official fansites to just report on something that can be found anywhere. The non-official fansites would get a huge (and unfair, tbh) advantage.
It's not strange. It's pretty normal, and actually quite logical that they don't punish us for doing that.
That clause exists "just in case" they need to take action. It's not something they'll actively try to enforce unless they feel it's needed. We have those in real life contracts sometimes (usually involving industrial/intellectual property).
ya if the police caught me in possession of crack cocaine it would be totally fine!!! you know why? cause i didnt make it myself! i just simply obtained it.
