I really don't see what the huge deal is with goldfarming. Economically I can see how it makes sense for some players to actually purchase vs farm gold. The alternative cost of their time in real dollars to farm the gold themselves can easily be greater than to simply purchase X gold for X dollars. I will admit that when I played D2 I may have purchased an enigma or two under these same principles, is it worth 40 hours of my time to get something I can buy for 5 bucks? My point is that gold/item farming/selling will never go away as much as you try because there is a legitimate economic rationale that it has. The real item to be complaining about if anything is the working conditions of the individuals farming the gold/items.
