These people really get to me.Especially when they repeatedly ask me for something. I learned my lesson back in Diablo, when someone would jump in and start saying "gimmesomeshit, oky" and "gimmeSOJ", ad nauseum. The only way to shut them up, apparently, was to give them something. Then and only then would I turn on my Townhack and kill them. I take this approach. If they are new to the game, which you can never tell because there are lots of dishonest people in there, I suggest joining a guild and bugging them about it. If they are guilded, I tell them to go bug their guild. That's what I did when I needed money or items, and I pay back my debts no matter what. Even large sums get paid back either in gold or in tradeskill stuff.Once in a while, I'll treat them like a homeless person. I ask them what they're going to use the money for. If they say "I need a good sword", I'll simply make or buy them a good sword for their level and class.Most often their response, like so many homeless people, is less than pleasant. I take this to mean that they were just going to spend it on beer and/or cigarettes instead of actual food. F*&^ them if they don't want my food.I actually knew a guy that got so sick of beggars that he made a female NE and walked around alliance towns stripped down nekkid and would ask for tips and dance for people. He'd send all the money to his main. This is largely how he funded his lvl 40 and 60 mounts.
