Brian “Psychochild” Green has run afoul of the WoW pirates. Thing is, he’s pretty careful about this sort of thing:
I consider this a cautionary tale, one worth noticing, as Brian isn’t exactly a noob when it comes to the internet, MMOs or even security. It looks like this story has a mostly happy ending, but it’s best not to even start this sort of thing. Congrats on the recovery, Brian, and good luck with the future.
(And yes, I do like the delicious irony of the cancellation timing. I’m also suspicious as to whether the pirates knew about that somehow, and hoped to take advantage of someone who planned on leaving…)
