Quote: he did earn it. by paying 3000g. you do have an inkling on how property, exchange for currency and all those other econ 101 things at work here function, right?just because he worked smarter and not harder doens't mean he still didn't earn it. if you really think effort must equal reward, then you should be blaming blizzard for allowing such nonsense.[/quote]Sure, and suppose I bought a pilfered Oscar statuette on the web. Are you saying I earned it because I paid what the seller was asking for it, even if I didn't slave away to perfect a craft and actually win it? Or say I got an authentic Super Bowl ring made and paid big bucks for it. Did I still earn it even though I never played professional football? There's a difference between earning something by saving up enough money for it (say, a sports car) and actually earning something through skill and effort (a trophy, a ribbon, a medal, anything that is supposed to reward you for an outstanding skill or performance). Here, I'll leave you with a little something they don't teach in econ 101: not everything has a monetary value.
