Swifty was one of the best warriors to ever play the game. After hosting an event with his guild, he accidently crashed a few servers in the process. As a scapegoat for the problem, Swifty was the only person banned for the incident.
It's created tons of hype over the last couple of hours. Just by searching 'Swifty Banned' or 'unban swifty' on YouTube you can find countless videos just uploaded today. On top of that, the WoW server Darkspear has been encountering incredible lag issues because of all the people spamming for Swifty to be unbanned. Also, there is already a 230+ page forum topic with over 4000 posts on the blizzard forums regarding his recent ban.
Who would of known 1 single player could raise such a commotion?
