    The real question should be are engineer turret farms ok or not?

    Every farm is allowed, as long as people follow the rules. If you are placing turrets (and not having software/hardware do it for you), then sure, of course it's fine.

    As phrased, that's inaccurate.

    Players were suspended (more than a few) for AFK farming. I'm sure many (perhaps even nearly all) were engineers. However, plenty of other engineers were not suspended and plenty of non-engineers got their own time out.
    Again, the only issue is whether the person is playing the game, based on the criteria ANet has laid down. It doesn't matter if it's a bearbow, a turret engie, a minion master, or any other sort of build with a lot of passive abilities. If you are playing (however inattentively), you're okay.

    The vast majority of players do not have to worry about it.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"
