I think the "mail-checking and posting takes too much time" argument is something of a red herring. While it's clear that this is true, modern addons make this not such a big deal. I typically have about 30-45 minutes of mailbox loading each day, which needs to be broken in half for inventory purposes (specifically, my inventory fills up after about 10-12 minutes of inbox loading).But with QA3's auto-mail feature, I can AFK that whole time. I hit "open all", and walk away from the computer. It even refreshes the mailbox and continues to load every 60 seconds when you get the next pile of 50 new messages. In the morning, doing my morning routines (shower, cereal, coffee, etc), I can just pop by the computer every so often, moving from the mailbox to the AH. In the evening, I do the same thing while making dinner or whatever.TL;DR: AH juggling's time requirements only have an opportunity cost if they keep you from actually playing the game. Which they don't have to.

So, in other words, you're botting.

Grrr, reply button.There's a difference between botting and using addons such as QuickAuctions3 (QA3). One is against the rules, while the other is not.
