First you say that it's not fair that these well-known people get "special treatment" by being punished, and then you say they should get "special treatment" and be let off the hook.
Account sharing is agaisnt the rules, I am not denying this. However, how can you just ban 4-5 people out of the thousands upon thousands of players who do this? Is that not unfair? If 3 celebrities do drugs, it is known instantly and they are punished for it in various ways (rehab/jail). If 3 random dudes in their mom's basement do drugs, they eventually get punished, but it takes much longer to happen or it never happens. It is the same in WoW, except blizzard rarely, rarely, RARELY ever if ever punishes people for account sharing.
These players, being in the top 0.01% of the WoW population, mean alot to the game. They help new players, they contribute by giving feedback about the game, and they are all long-time WoW veterans. These players should have at most gotten a warning for these.
Tbh, I don't really care what happens, but everybody knows the rules, they broke them and got caught. How can you complain about that? Rules are rules. It's an awful argument to say 'well there's lots of other people that do it and haven't been caught, why should they?' - that's like getting a speeding ticket and saying to the cop, 'you can't give me a ticket, other people have sped and not gotten one'. Now if you think account sharing shouldn't be against the rules, that's another issue and I could get behind that, but good luck fighting Blizzard on that.
Just my $0.02.

jk, 2k mmr still flooded with 2800/r1s. Just a show off by blizzard that they still pay any attention to what is going on in the game. Ban a few players, hope the other 10,000 get scared.

a proxy doesn't stop the "client" from being banned, it just prevents it from being traced to the seller, unless they log onto their own account through the same proxy. consistently banning people who receive sells would be just as effective as banning the sellers.
That is true.
