Depends on what kind of friend. Would he go out of his way to report you just to see you banned?
First of all id suggest to stay away from botting for a few days. If nothing happens by next week then theres no reason to panic. Second i think its a good idea to contact Miqo support and ask them to delete this thread. Your friend could be a Miqobot user too which means he could read forums. It wouldnt take much time for him to connect the dots. You really dont want to discuss such things in public.January 14, 2020 at 6:15 pm #19761
If you’re being called out in your own fc chances are that others have also noticed the bot-like behavior. That said, if you answered his question in a timely manner then I dont see why you should worry, altho they can still report you, but as long as you’re keeping an eye on miqo you should be fine.
Kinda sucks for those in an fc that your activity is open for everyone in the fc to see tho, there should be a way to block that.January 16, 2020 at 9:20 pm #19769

Just as an update no ban. It was an extremely good friend from outside the game (buddy from college) who just made a mistake. Firstly thank you for all the responses.
For future reference anyone worried about being called out for batting in chat, so long as said player doesn’t seem to actually report you do not stress out too much.March 2, 2020 at 8:50 pm #20542

I have multiple screens and I keep ffxiv open as I play other games or watch tv for this purpose, especially when I am botting for long periods. I set my filters so I only get chat requests with timestamps and this way I can spot it and reply instantly. When collecting MGP switch it up, do mini-games for a while then do choco racing, once in a while do gate instances. When gathering /wave to other gatherers, craft in your room with no one around. Simple steps and no one will be the wiser.
