#4 Writes: (after all, why not just park an alt in each AH, and mail the gold to yourself instantly if you need to deliver to a client in a particular city?)I don't think you *comprehend* what is going on.A) Gold used to be delivered through the mail, but with the 1 hour delay, they had the opportunity to catch / confiscate the gold.B) Gold Sellers changed delivery methods to an AH buyout system borrowed from the widely known/used method for moving gold/items across factions.C) Blizzard puts a 1 hour delay on that delivery of gold giving them an opportunity to catch / confiscate that gold.D) Gold Seller: Now what? Face-to-Face deliveries?That is going to be much harder for them to do. It's going to take more time to carry out the transaction and allow for more mistakes and harrassment.Can you imagine what would happen if one of them showed up in Orgrimmar for instance and a bunch of folks find out and /trade spammed the gold seller?Anyways ... going to be interesting to see what happens next, but this latest move by blizzard is going to put a "cramp in their style".
