"If you want to make money, that's what your job is for. "Wow. Someone needs to learn a thing or two about Capitalism and how America works. If someone wants to use a skill they possess to create a useful tool that makes someone's life easier and charge for it, it's their right. As a consumer it's your right to choose not to buy it if you think it's priced unfairly or worthless. This is complete bullcrap and most likely an attempt for Blizzard/Activision to start making their own add-on suites that they will be charging for. Here, let me show you exactly what went on in the boardroom. Activision exec: "Wait, so you're telling me we let players customize their own game interfaces?"WoW Dev: "Yep. Some of the things people do are really great and help a lot of people. It really improves gameplay and makes our confusing interface a lot easier to use."Activision exec: "Do they charge for them?"WoW Dev: "Well, most are free and maintained by the community but there a few that charge or ask for donations."Activision exec: "Find out which ones charge and ban them, then we can sell those products to the customer for an extra charge through our own website. Half the user base probably don't know the name of their own operating system nevermind join a programming community. Hey Janice! Are the bonus checks in yet?!"
