I can totally agree - we are both taking a generally vague statement and giving what we believe is the most obvious interpretation of it. i wouldn't say for a second that Blizzard isn't capable/wouldn't do what you are suggesting - I am just saying the quoted statement by Bashiok if interpreted as is (without a tin-foil hat mindset) , in no way hints that they WILL do what you are suggesting.
I am talking about that specific statement, not what measures Blizzard is capable of, especially after becoming Blizzavision... if I were talking about the latter, i'd likely agree with you
