I'm sorry to hear it obviously. I think there are some people we can reach, and some people we can't--and it'll always be that way. Regardless, I'm sorry to see any customer go.I still think it's dangerous to say "I refuse to support the kind of people who MIGHT support RMT if it was profitable." EVERY company is in the business of self-preservation. GOOGLE would support RMT if it was profitable--and in fact, they do. Look at the top of the page and check out the Google Adwords. Wowinsider "supports" RMT to--there are RMT ads on every page of this site. I've even gotten personal emails from people who browsed this site and saw my comments, and decided to ask me if I knew where they could get 1000g cheap.By saying "I'm not going to support a business that is willing to support RMT if it made them money" you paint yourself into a moral corner that's hard to get out of. I think your energy would be better spent boycotting Kraft foods to take money out of Phillip Morris' pockets. Or, if you're concerned about the RMT industry and the state of the games we both play (Horde side on Draenor ftw), I recommend you spend your effort ensuring that RMT continues to be an unprofitable business. Report spammers, gold farmers and bots. Keep your computers secure and prevent keyloggers. Boycott the RMT companies directly--Don't spend your time, energy and effort trying to bring down Wowhead. If you do, nothing's going to happen to Affinity Media--they'll keep right on doing their thing. It's Evilseed, Skosiris, Mystadio and myself that are going to suffer if Wowhead goes downhill, and our little corner of the company will get sold off to someone less scrupulous just like IGE did.
