While I also get angry at getting immediately undercut by that guy who camps the AH all day, I don't know if that really makes him "jerky." As long as he isn't already undercutting below cost, I always have the option to keep lowering my list price until either a.) The guy stops undercutting me or b.) He buys me out.It's not that different from raiding. I would like to have gotten the gear from heroic LK. However, I don't have the time to dedicate to multiple nights of raiding over the timespan of several weeks/months. As a result, I settle for whatever I can get on normal mode. Because other people are willing to put in 10-15+ hours a week into raiding, does that mean they're being jerks because they have better gear than I do? Of course not. If I wanted to down HLK, I would have made the additional time commitment to do so. In the same way, if I want to list my items at a higher price, I have to put in the time commitment to making sure I cancel/report frequently. Otherwise, I simply list them at a lower price.Granted, bots are cheating, plain and simple, but this article is talking about saying people are jerks that spend serious time on the AH. Does it annoy me when people spend more time than me? Yep. Does it make them jerks? Not really.

The only "jerks" I've run into while going on my short AH spree was the ones who consistently undercut by a single copper. Sure, there are those glyph-filled weird names that you keep running into a couple silvers under yours, but undercutting is just another part of playing the AH game. I know there might be a chance that because of his undercut, your stuff might not sell but there's no need to get your feelings hurt. Just because that boss dodged your attack doesn't mean you sit down and cry and call him a jerk, you go hit him again or add some hit to your gear and go at it again.
