I'mI’m going to play devil’s advocate here.1) Societal laws =/= moral laws. It’s not morally wrong to speed in your car. God will not come down and smite you if you rip the tag off your pillow. Similarly, you are not going to hell for buying gold.2) When people buy gold, they are making a real time/value judgment. This is no different than buying a car, dvd, or cell phone. You weight the benefits against the costs and make a decision. As has been mentioned in this thread, gold is plentiful and easy to come by. Then why do people still buy it? Time. Like it or not, the game is still a huge time sink and not all of us are able to spend a few hours a day picking flowers in Zangarmarsh. If you still want to raid, pvp (talk about a huge time sink), or whatever, but have real life commitments that prevent you from picking said flowers or grinding out rep for a faction that awards you with a mount that you will never use (epic flyer), spending $40 so you don’t have to worry about having guildmates harass you about having unenchanted gear or “ghetto gems” might very well be worth it to you.
