CCP's War On Bots: TinyMiner

For those wondering about CCP's War On Bots™, the "Reporting from the front line of the Bot-War" thread is pure win.  Yesterday CCP Sreeg left this tasty tidbit in the thread:
"In actuality, the normal player is the one who has the most to lose. We will catch him and he will lose all his stuff. It's the cheaters who don't fit the mold who will require the most attention. We went after a new one today. HAPPY EASTER!"
That new one appears to be TinyMiner.  While I couldn't get into the forums because it requires registration, NinjaSpud reported the following:
Website B (TM) has started to report losses. For a while no one was saying anything (and I feared that they where somehow being missed by CCP), but I found similar posts to this:

"User XXXXX2 is banned
Last login: XXXXX2
Number of visits: 861
Reason: EULA/TOS Violation - Macro use
Until: 2011.05.04

Got Banned today in my 2 accounts BEWARE EVERYONE THEY ARE CATCHING THE PPL who is using the bot Sad"

I'd go out on a limb and say Website B is officially under siege.
While the forums require registration now, Google did cache the thread if you would like to read it for yourself.


And in a related note, April 24th came and went for the new release of Roid Ripper and it is still down.

There may be other sites affected, but I don't know the Eve botting world well enough to know exactly where to look for more.
