BioWare Game Ban Explained

EA community member whatshisname has been unbanned and is now able again to enjoy Dragon Age II and all his DLC in all its glory. Turned out it was all an unfortunate error. There's really no one to blame here, Chris Priestly explains:
Here is my official response. You will likely see this picked up on news sites soon enough.
EA strictly enforces the code of conduct at Social.BioWare.com. If a player violates the rules by using profanity, they will be temporarily banned. Unfortunately, there was an error in the system that accidentally suspended a user's entire account. Immediately upon learning of the glitch, EA restored the user's macro account and apologized for the inconvenience.
[Update] : I think it's obvious that this is a blatant lie and depriving legitimate customers of their purchased software as some sort of punishment for saying the wrong things on the Bioboards is a "business practice" BioWarEA endears for a longer period of time already, as evidenced by this post of CarFax on their Forums.
