Are Macros Illegal?

So I've been getting a lot of different opinions , I even had a pretty decently long conversation with a crossfire z8 games gm about this two sided coin, my point being if your going to ban someone for using a macro your pretty much saying you can ban anyone with a gaming keyboard, razer snyapsis for example... but the other side of the coin which she did make a good point, is that not everyone has gaming keyboards, not everyone can afford one so buying a gaming keyboard is having an advantage over someone with those macro keys... so  long story short im wondering if anyone can awnser the question.. are macros , macros specifally for  example  - pushing t over n over n over again so you can transfer food into dinos inventory and go do something else for a few hours while ur char is auto feeding your new rex .. or is this against the code of conduct ??? just want to be sure , because id hate to get banned over something like this..

... but the other side of the coin which she did make a good point, is that not everyone has gaming keyboards, not everyone can afford one so buying a gaming keyboard is having an advantage over someone with those macro keys...

That argument is pointless because freeware tools like Autohotkey are way more powerful than any gaming keyboard.

Your question can't be answered with "yes" or "no", because even an autorun-key is a simple macro. Another thing are macros which walking routes and doing things all automatically.

place mouse pointer over food in your inventory, put mouse in a place where it can't be moved by accident. stick a piece of paper between the keys to hold t down.

Imagine if whistle macros would have been banned when you had to set tames to wander to breed.  I had to turn my sound off when I used the macro because the whistle became so annoying.

RIP My whistle macro... wait that's not right.. Burn in Hell my whistle macro... that's better.
