Personally I think the idiots with nothing better to do than sit in the AH and buy any goods priced lower than theirs - just to sell them for more money and thus inflate prices - should be shot. Add a flag to items in AHs that makes them bind on sale.

Evidently you didn't understand the post at all. The article was talking about how the game has a free market and that people are able to raise their funds any way they see fit with NO outside interaction. Choosing to spend all your time in the AH is how some people make their in game gold. I am not one of these people but I would assume that they enjoy what they do and at the end of the day they are playing WOW they want to. It is not your right or anyone else to punish them just because you don't like how they are playing.

The AH is just another aspect of the game. You can choose to make your fortune by it or ignore it altogether. Those who buy low and sell high are taking a risk. They do potentially stand to lose money if their goods aren't bought. If they have gambled correctly, then more power to them. The same opportunities are open to everyone.It's no different to real life where suppliers buy goods at a lower price and sell them for somewhat higher.

I don't know, I perfectly understand that people might enjoy this. It's a strange and scary world pit there. But it does make life unpleasant for the rest of us. One example that springs to mind is the control of the pricing of raid flasks, on my server they have recently rocketed in price from 20 to an average of 70 gold and they are all listed by one player.While this isn't a problem for established players with many revinue streams or the ability to tap guild resources, the newer player trying to get a foothold in raiding finds themselves unable to afford what many consider to be an essential buff.I personally would like to see cross server auction houses. More competition amongst the AH junkies would be better for buyers, and probably make playing the Market more interesting for those who's perversion lies that way.

Yes, but we had a similar issue on my server recently with armor vellums being sold on ah by one player only and reaching incredible prices. Two guys in my guild noticed this in my guild, got out their inscription and started producing as many vellums as they could muster and selling them on ah at similarly inflated prices. At least two or three other people had the same idea, and within only a couple of days the prices had dropped in a series of undercuttings and repricings right back to where it should be.
