I hate BF3 and EA/Dice more and more. Not only BF3 is a half-baked product, but EA/Dice makes very little effort to put it right.
As far as AA, they are registered with GoDaddy and their server is in San Francisco. EA can file state or federal law suit against AA and yet EA does nothing.
AA claims they had nothing to do with it, but they approve.
They say it was a junior member that acted on his own.
And if anyone takes any action against them, they will escalate the war.
