I've seen multi-boxers on Wow and although I'm not totally against them you have to question the fact that doesnt this give them a distinct advantage over challenges that the single account player may struggle against?
Single players will have to initiate the good ol' fashioned "Let's find a group and overcome this challenge together!!" where a user with 6 chars all spanking the crap out of a dangerous mob easily doesnt really sound right to me.

How about just .. No multi-boxxing, but also no automated banning of multi-boxxers?
This allows people to play from the same connection/house with each other, and unless they repeatedly get reported for cheating (multi-boxxing is cheating ) then they aren't banned. Once reported, someone flys over invis to keep an eye on them for a little bit and if they're caught/the logs reveal they are multi-boxxing, you just hit them with the ban hammer.

The wise move to have less of a clash with the fanbase is do not allow any multi-boxing at all. People will find a way to get around it and somehow multi-box with separate computers linked together. Why even give them a fighting chance? Why even deal with the potential of cheaters when you can not allow it one bit. There are many who make a living playing MMOs and selling in-game currency or other activities for real money. While I am all for people making a living, I disagree when it is at the expense of making the game suffer.

Hell, I say make second accounts cheaper so I can let my wife and kids play. 15 for first, 10 for second, 5 for each additional.

No reason to try to stop people from doing it in my opinion. I believe the overall effect of multiboxing on economy of the game is overall, positive. It rewards the people who want to put more time into and effort into the game and I believe that's how it should be.

If someone really want's to buy multiple computers and multiple accounts and actually sit there and control all their characters THEMSELVES, who am I to stand in their way. At that point anything they gain is earned in my humble opinion. I imagine multiboxers are already a small fraction of gamers and this policy choice will most likely make that fraction even smaller.
