Either take away the ability to loot these items unless they are 40+ or just let it go. I prefer the former honestly, a level 4 shouldn't be able to get level 50 gear to simply sell.

Banning the account just seems a bit harsh, unless they are selling credits to a third party site...in that case ban them
People make the decision to exploit a broken mechanic or not. They should be held accountable for it. It shouldn't matter if they are level 1 or 50.

The accounts who exploited were suspended not banned, though I agree with you here.

This is why I did not agree with Blizzard when they banned some of the top guilds in the world for "exploiting" a mechanic during the Lich King fight. I would never ban or suspend people for exploiting the game, as it would be the fault of me, the developer, that this was in the game. I would fix it and warn those trying to do it again. If it worked, they had been warned and would be suspended. You should not be punished the first time for something the developers did not fix or know about. If it is broke in-game, the developers and company are responsible for that, not the player for finding or taking advantage of it.

Now if I am using a program that is changing code or files, that is hacking/cheating. Exploits are in-game, cheats and hacks (Generally) are out of game.

If you read my posts and there's you would see what he trying to say.

I stated in my post, if you or I(and friends), camp a spawn all day or run node to node.. its legal.
obviously they can not go in to details but its something way more then that. he stated it is a higher then normal rate. EI must be an exploit or mod allowing them to cheat the system.

I know there is one for WoW they have just recently been able to get ride of. it lasted 2yrs(roughly ish) allowing someone to zone into an area and port to the chests on the map, looting them and zone out. That is why only recently wow allowed open world chests to start showing up again.

totally agree with this statement.

Try to read it again. This time try to actually understand what is being said. I know I know, reading comprehension is hard work, but one day it may prove useful.

I read it, I figured I would ask and get an actually helpful answer instead of thinly veiled sarcasm.
