The answer to all of these is patience. Before BC, when I started playing, I couldn't afford most things on the AH either. What I could afford I picked up slowly, as they came up cheap. The "buy everything for 2g" is more a product of someone having too much money *cough*dailyquests*cough* rather than a real problem. It will last exactly until the next person lists something, and 24 hours from now that guy's mail box will be full of expired items.Limiting people from buying things would be miserable. "Want to level up tailoring? I'm sorry, you can only have five stacks of runecloth. Hope you're patient!"Blizzard already has the means to influence the economy: quest rewards, vendor sales and crafting professions. If the best gear at low levels comes from quest rewards anyway, it matters much less that the cost of low-level gear is run up by people with outside money sources. All trying to control the market would do is create a big headache and cause even more people to stand around hawking things in /trade in between chuck norris comments.
