This is nothing new.Selling low-value items for high prices in the AH has long been a way to transfer gold across boundaries. It's perfect for gold transfers between players, or for transfers between horde and alliance using the Goblin AH.As for the wrongness of gold selling, consider this: someone can use a L70 main to grind out 1000G in a week or less, and then transfer that to a lower-level alts to create a rich twink, or just supply that leveling character with all the gold they need. I don't see that as all that different from getting gold from a gold seller, or getting a loan or a gift from a buddy online.Being broke in game really sucks, especially when it comes time to buy a mount, or to level up a skill. Gold can take the place of some grinding, and there's way too much grinding in the game already. I think Blizzard is better off trying to manage gold-selling rather than eliminate it entirely.
