Heilig is right and it is happening on my server. I have befriended a couple of the Chinese farmers (mostly to practice my Chinese) and though they wouldn't talk to me at first for fear I was a GM, they eventually warmed up to me and let me in on the whole process. AH botting is the new thrust of Gold Selling companies, though they use it to augment their traditional botting techniques. They own the gem, glyph, and enchant scrolls market with 100% uptime, and with their goods representing over 65% of those categories' postings. The real hard thing is they understand all the "goblin" tactics quite well and know how to respond. They are mostly impervious to the Wall, as their costs are far lower than a non-farmer and so they can remain profitable far below our breaking point. The only wall that can beat them is the irrationally low, profit losing wall, but I guarantee they have more capital ready to win a price war and they will just wait for the profit-loser to lose.
