Botnet mining is wrong because all botnets are wrong.  There's not much more to it than that- in what world is it all right to illegally take advantage of someone else's property and use it for your own purposes?

Well said. No mater what the purpose is.
And I believe if a botnet owner hope to keep Bitcoin works, he/she just want to benefit from it too.

Mining with P2Pool. Graph. Blocks.
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Not only that, it hurts Bitcoin's rep by making it look like an underground currency (like Silk Road does).
