Isn't this event giving free gear anyway, kicking a ton of people who worked hard to get full colo in the balls?
If it is to make gear tradeable, make it during those "give away" events only, if so. During normal circunstances, leave them untradeable. Would make everything better.
Profitable = involves (large) gain of zeny. Transfering to an alt that is under your control doesn't sound bad to me, since it will be YOU who will play with it, and YOU did the work yourself to get the said item.
People see "omg, colo!" like it is something major unfair. CoA doesn't get a lot easier easier with colo stuff. While CoA is doable with crafted items, most people go to colo stuff in order to seriously try it. While it feels like "skiping content", in fact you're not. Colo was supposed to be a secondary way to get equips, and most people in the server hate colo, just doing it since they "need that black gear". I myself only crafted the shirt because i felt i needed it (since pve shirt drops are quite problematic), but there was no real need for it. If there was CoA before Colo, it would be a totally different story.
People who opened vends and put high zeny for any cannot trade item deserve a lifetime ban by the simple fact that they wanted to get richier by exploiting. There is a consensus about that.
People who just transfered items around are different from that. While they "cut corners", there was no zeny gain. For those, a warning and removal of the offending items seems of a good measure. A warning that next time they cross the line on anything, they will get the banhammer. But some may say "they deserve to be punished!", and they are being punished. They will lose the items they got by the exploit, so there won't be any gain in the end. Probably add some days of suspension for them to think about it.
If it is to apply rules to the max without any consideration per case, then a lot of people would have been banned. It is pretty much a matter of handling the situation carefully. I do believe from Zanbee's announce in the foruns that they are doing just that. Analizing each case and giving the proper measure of punishment.
They already banned those who were obnoxiously selling stuff. Served 'em right.
