I'm with #5 on this. It's just *NOT* that big of a problem people. Sure, I may get two or three per session, with the rarity being 3 in rapid succession. I never get dozens per session, and I play in rather large chunks of time. In the end, I just close the window and move on with life. However, that being said, if Blizz does get in on the gold selling, I'll be the first person to cancel my account. The only thing that would do is cause massive inflation, to the point where *one* Knothide Leather Scrap would be going for 50g, simply because there's that much cash floating around the economy. It would truly turn the game into a rich mans playground, which would kill it for everyone, except the rich. One possible solution is to implement something like EQ2 (I think) did. Have a special server where you can buy characters, etc. straight from Blizz. That way, people who cry about never making progress can buy their 70's and play with a bunch of other retarded noobs. Of course, you'd have to implement a no transfer policy on the realm, but that's a non-event. Bottom line, the game is designed as a time sink. Not an impossible time sink. Take away the challenge, and you take away the fun, and also the profits for Blizz. Not to mention, where the HELL is your sense of pride and accomplishment in having an epic flying mount if you bought the damn thing with real world cash? My enjoyment of the game comes from starting out with *nothing* and building my character. No twinking, no gold buying, nothing. Granted, some people can deal with that, and that's fine, but don't ruin my game just because you're too lazy to work for your own stuff.
