Error 53

Technical Support
I bought the game a long time ago, at realese and played it a lot at first, but then I quit for some time. And now when I try to log on, it says that I have violated some rules or something and that I have been suspended (error 53). When I try to get help trough your horrible support, I can't even get in contact with you. An account authenticator, which I didn't have before, had been put on my account.
If you are not completely stupid you have probably guessed that I have been hacked. I want my account back, and if I don't get it, I will not buy another copy of your bullsh*t.

If anyone working for Blizzard can see this, please answer, and please fix your support page, it is freaking horrible.
Getting angry will solve nothing

Hope you get something sorted...
