I wanted to make sure that the use of the synapse 2.0 software was ok. After all, with macros, you can do alot. So I sent off this E-Mail:
I bought a Razer Naga and Orbweaver for use with the game, World of Warcraft. It uses a configuration program called Synapse. This program has the ability to record and execute macros and using those macros, from what I can tell, do multiple things in game on a single key press. I'd like to know if this program is allowed or not. Thanx
This is the reply I got:

Now, I’m not saying that anyone would use it for such, but just a fair warning to those who do use it. They cann’t tell what you use it for and if they detect that you DO use it, they don’t ask questions first. They might send out a warning though. I know that I had an account banned for botting once and they didn’t warn me. They just locked my account. Nothing hurts like waking up to find your account locked and no email to explain why till about a day later.
Again, I’m not trying to be an @$$pole here. I simply don’t want anyone to get into trouble and I’m trying to warn that it’s use might be taken the wrong way. So you might want, just to be safe, to stop using it while WoW is active.
You might have been using it for ages and had no issues. Great. I knew people who botted from vanilla through Wrath and never got caught. I"m not trying to say you WILL be caught. I’m only saying that the official ruling is, “If it can automate play, it’s not allowed.”
Your call of course.
