They have your $60 and they may get some microtransactions from you but odds are banning you makes them money from you buying another account for $60 (lets assume half stop playing, so $60x1500accounts each = $90k revenue to pay for the ban stick staffers). So AAnet has less incentive for temp bannage compared to subscription services.

Considering the ban limit was 100+ weapons... yeh I think people knew they were in shady territory!

Esp when all the other weaps cost ~ 9,800+

People are saying well who cares its BoP and doesn't affect anything, but if you got a few them and combined them in the mystic forge the items that came out weren't BoP. Few people even got lvl 80 legendaries out of it (apparently)

Looks like they are being lenient but for this one time only.

They offering to convert permabans into 72hr suspensions upon appeal, but only if you promise to delete the items and cash, more info here:-
