Well, I have a joband wouldn't call myself a rich brat but that is the prominent theme on this site, if blizzard says it's bad then the rest of the readership follows (clearly this is not everything but an observation based on my experience, mileage will vary). It's stupid because they could very easily implement this. Plenty of games before have and more will. Except everyone thinks it evil, morally reprehensible, ect. Seriously I'd love to buy some gold, and what advantage is it going to give me? Instead of having to level my blacksmithing skill over 4 weeks I can do it in a week since I have a job. In all reality, this won't help those spoiled brats the author speaks of nearly as much as some of us who enjoy the game for raiding and don't want to spend 2 hours a day farming mats for professions and gems. But w/e I don't expect blizz to ever implement this and it's a shame because it really could help the farming situation out, and it wouldn't be hard to put in inflation controls. Christ do it eve style, don't have blizzard sell gold, have the players sell it. While I understand the points that this and other articles have made this one is full of lame excuses. I mean, I know when I want legal advice about ToS, EULA and taxes I almost certainly go to a wowinsider blogger.... no offence to the writers here, I wouldn't be reading if I didn't enjoy it but really, the authors stick to what they know and stop dishing out legal issues for this when in reality they have no clue what the actual situation is.
