So it appears people have actually been foolish enough to break the NDA of Warhammer Online. Apparently they felt safe doing it wherever it was that they chose to. Sucks for them, because it wasn't safe at all. A number of Beta Testers lost their Warhammer Online accounts recently due to breaking the NDA and talking about things they shouldn't have.

Yesterday we removed several more people from the Beta for NDA violations. I've said it before and I'll say it again, however secure you THINK the location you're spilling your guts about Beta is, trust me, it isn't. There's always someone there who will turn you in for the slightest chance of getting into beta. And you know, from our point of view, that's a great thing. Our numbers stay the same, one out, one in.
So if you get into the Beta, please keep in mind, it's not only us that is out there scouring the web for NDA violations, it's everyone else who isn't in as well.
This is a good example of why you should abide by NDAs. Not just the game company is looking out for their interests - other players are as well - so even if you think you're in the clear to spread info - you probably aren't.
