@ No 12There is nothing wrong with Blizzard giving out free trials mate, it brings more people to the game and makes good business sense to Blizzard. As if the top dogs at Blizzard are gonna walk into Warcraft HQ one day and say - 'hey - we now have 8 million gamers subscribed!! Stop giving out 10 day trials because we make enough money now!' To everyone on this thread that is moaning saying that they hate spam - blah blah blah. Its not hard just to ignore it like i do - or just leave the chat that is grating on ya nerves! Its not rocket science after all. Blizzard have given you the opportunity to ignore it if you want to, so why not use it instead of moaning?If you ask me the real problem lies with the critters that actually buy the gold from these gold farmers ( as mentioned by No 15). If nobody bought the stuff in the first place - there wouldnt be any spam about it because it would be a waste of time.I have always wondered why anybody would buy gold anyway. I have found that buying weapons etc at early lvl's (and higher lvl's to a certain degree) is pointless because you are bound to find better or something almost the same questin anyway.As for bringing in rules about stopping anyone under lvl 6 joining chat channels or whispers - they pay the same subscription as you dude. Why cant they join the same chat channels and make the same whisps that you can? Taking this away from the masses of players out there that are actually serious about the game is the wrong way about it, its not fair on them.Im just glad i dont have to work out a way to stop this sort of thing and be fair to everybody. It must be hard for Blizzard to come up with a valid solution - good luck with that blizz.....
