I don't know what constitutes bot use in WoW but if the bot is designed to enable automated levelling then it's a big no-no. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the gold farmers have such bots running on an almost factory-like basis.
Conversely these "set it and forget it" drones can be programmed to fly miles. You set a course, off it goes and you'll see it again 20 minutes later. Assuming it hasn't hit a tree, power / cable line, or a bird, or a plane, or been flipped by the weather, or simply suffered a fault and fallen out of the sky. The drone is also likely to be programmed to fly over points of interest which may be roads, buildings, cities etc.
That's where the danger lies. The risk for the operator has disappeared and a laissez faire attitude which could put other people at greater harm.
Just like British gun control, because only allowing people to own a shotgun or bolt action rifle makes the world so much safer.
Yes as the death / murder statistics in countries with firearm controls would show.
Secure by default should ALWAYS be the policy pursued in software. People are afraid to change the default setting and if that default setting compromises their safety, privacy or otherwise puts them at risk then the default sucks.
Anything which has a consumable element to it is manufactured in such a way as to be proprietary and usually protected by design patents and / or DRM.
Exactly why I didn't buy one of these machines. I thought they were totally a-holes for making this move, but I gotta hand it to them, it's a rare thing for a business to admit that they were wrong. Good on them!
The issue is they only said they were wrong because they lost money. If they had made money they'd all be hive fiving each other on their business acumen and other companies would soon follow with their own proprietary DRM systems.
