Ive been into computers and programming for almost 20 years now. The auto players are not at all a violation since they dont use any code from the actual game. "SIRPLAYA" is correct about the ADS. They would actually be theatened by the AD companies they use to not pay them since it is not being seen by an actual person. So they then threaten the users to be banned since they are loosing money. I can see people actually suing them back if they.. 1. have made a purchase of items, or 2. have to pay a membership fee. Its all a matter of time before the next best thing comes out and they are just a memory in your mind somewhere.
