I'll start by poking a hole in the argument created here... IF you could buy gold with cash, there's nothing to say that Blizzard would allow you to go the other way - you couldn't "sell" your gold and earn cash. Without being able to go both ways, there isn't a real trade market available, and you would have to be extremely foolish to try and say that gold earned in game - which can't be transferred to cash - should be taxed. Yeah, there would be sales tax on any gold you did buy... but that's not anything Blizzard isn't prepared to handle with their online store.The rest of the arguments i do buy, however... they would much rather sell you items you can't get in game, than sell you gold and let you get the items with gold - they make more money on the items that way.I just think people need to lay off the whole taxation thing with gold buying... that really won't happen unless the transfers can go both ways.
