There is a problem I never saw anyone discussing.Example, put more zeros if you feel like it.Let's say server economy has 100 gold running around. Each day 5 ppl get hacked, hacker gets 1 gold from each, sells these 5 gold to someone else. Server economy still have 100 gold running around. But then, Blizz restores the gold from those 5 hacked ppl. Now, server economy has 105 gold. That leads to inflation. AH prices get higher. PPL who don't buy gold suffers from it.So, don't say your account getting stolen is just your problem, cause it isn't.With all the hacking that has happened during Christimas, the demand for money the new patch brought and all the jack**ses who bought gold I wonder if primordial saronite and battered hilt prices, just to name 2 examples, would be so high.

The server economy is false anyway. The flow of gold into the economy through dailies and randoms is significantly greater than the flow of gold out through gold sinks. The increase in the gold supply via the restoration of gold for hacked accounts is likely small relative to the increase in gold supply through questing.
