Selling things 1 item at a time isn't a bad thing in many cases. It's just determined by what items are being sold. Dust? sure sell it in stacks of 5/10/15/20, but sometimes crafters need things in stacks of 2, or 4 for commonly crafted items. Knowing when to adjust and when not to can prove quite profitable. My biggest beef with Auctioneer is when the power and simplicity completely dominates and destroys common sense. Example: I'm a scribe and am always pushing glyphs on the AH. When I see high end glyphs moving at 20/30 silver and sometimes even less... it kinda turns my stomach. The herbs/pigments/inks are worth WAY more than the glyphs themselves. The end result is a handful of rookie scribes selling everything they have and undercutting each other. This renders the possibility of profit impossible and keeps prices below manufacturing cost for a long time, if not permanently. I'm savvy enough to adapt and move different products, but I find myself often buying glyphs from the AH when I'm a scribe myself... just because I can buy them cheaper than I can make them. I'll use my inks on other stuff.To sum up my point. Auctioneer and similar addons are very powerful, but when put in the hands of the simple minded... it can be disruptive. If you get the tools, learn the tools.
