Auctioneer isn't that bad, if you're using it intelligently.Have a bank alt. Only do your auctioning on a bank alt. Never load auctioneer on any character other than that bank alt. (nothing you can buy on the AH is BOP, so why do you neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed to buy it with your main or the character you're equipping something with anyway?). Thus, you're never getting Auctioneer loaded by anything except the single character you're using for nothing BUT Auctioneer. This is more or less the way it was meant to be used I think, but some people have severe OCD and have to have everything all the time or something.Plus, I think a lot of people overstate the negative memory aspect of mods. Unless you're running on a really old computer that has less than 1GB of memory, I don't think there's any real negative performance you can see from the vast majority of mods. It's definitely not an issue of running more mods translating into a definite performance loss, since I've got varying degrees of mod setups for my characters (very minimal when leveling, and increasing amounts depending on what the characters are doing at 70) and there's no noticeable difference for me when I have 40mb of mods loaded and 80mb. If you're seeing performance hits, it's almost always individual mods that are poorly made and there's usually an appropriate substitute around since a lot of people don't like that stuff and the mod community is pretty responsive to that. There are plenty of reasons to shy away from mods i suppose, but memory usage isn't a very logical one.
