thats not true... the truth is this::
Macroing is legal on ly in eslant.
Many people macro outside of eslant.
EXPLOITS are still illegal. KOXP, FuckKO, autoloot, etc, are exploits and are illegal.
Only LEGAL macroes are hand written scripts that push the button repeatedly for you.
Most macro "parties" are not afk, as luring is VERY common in MYKO, but when FuckKO launched with run2mob, everyone used it on apos 24/7, thus, the second wave of level 70's came about. Also, macroing 24/7 you lose money because of pots/item drops/coin drops/repair fees, as you cant loot. With autoloot, you make massive money, which also screwed up the market.
GM's didn't go to eslant, there was no need to. If you didnt asnwer a GM pm in luferson/edana, you were watched for a bit. Then you were banned xD.
