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.

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