Suspensions going out for cache abuse

Can someone explain how people were supposed to know that they were abusing it?

For example, me and a guildy got 3 boxes total, they stopped dropping and we spent time killing over 200 mobs to figure out that we must have capped somehow. So how exactly are other people supposed to know that you aren’t supposed to get more? Why are people being suspended for it?

(This didn’t affect anyone in my guild, I just want to know why Blizzard is going back on their statements about how exploiting needs to be obvious to be punished)

We’ve removed the suspensions that were issued for repeatedly looting the Black Empire Coffer.

We hotfixed the underlying issue earlier this week. Our initial analysis suggested that there was exploitative behavior here: a series of actions that needed to be taken outside of typical gameplay in order to gain advantage. However, further investigation revealed this was not always the case. This chest could reset under innocuous or even accidental conditions.
