Auctioneer *stabilizes* markets, and it's easy to see that everyone benefits from that (other than a few sharks who would make more gold off the innocent if the markets were *less* stable).Without Auctioneer existing, only a few 24-7 players on each realm would have any idea what is a worthwhile selling price for any given item. Everyone else would be taking wild stabs at it since they would have no idea how prices were changing over time. Usually the loudest and most frequent complaints against any realm's economy are the ones about prices being ridiculous. If you want to see ridiculous prices, remove Auctioneer or its users from a server for a couple of weeks. It would quickly become a bizarre mix of overpriced junk that never sold, and commodities so underpriced + further undercut that no one could make a profit.
