Why not just report him to Blizzard as a confirmed gold seller? It leaves you free of any confrontation and it all goes into Blizzard's lap. :o

Because passing your problems to someone else is not something a good leader does.

A good leader WILL take issues up the chain of command, though. In this case, Blizzard's the top of the chain.

If I didn't like the guy, i would jsut report him.

A good leader will take the time to talk to the person about the issue first, before escalating it. Talk to him, let him know it's not OK. If he keeps doing it, then feel free to escalate it as needed.
Just*If he was a friend, I would donate him a 3-mo game card. Just as long as he was looking for a work at home job he could do from his PC. There are plenty out there...

He would have to be a friend of mine, otherwise I would report him.

Can't say that I agree with this. I wouldn't go to my lieutenant and tell them this private is sleeping on watch. I would slap the private and tell him to stop sleeping on watch.Either way. It seems to me like you have 4 choices.1. You decide to condone it.2. You ask him to stop using the guild's cooldowns, etc for personal business and take up a collection to help him get some game time.3. You ask him to stop using the guild's cooldowns, etc for personal business. Where he finds the game time is his business.4. You boot him for being shady about the whole thing.Pick one and go with it, but don't push the responsibility to someone else. Be a man (or woman) and tell them yourself.

Seems like this could be looked at another way.He plays the AH for his friends who don't have time or interest in such things and gives them the money. In turn they donate time for him to play.It's not like he's selling gold to strangers, spamming gchat or trade. So, I only see a problem here if he's using people's CDs who aren't in the loop, and those people would use their CDs for other things (personal profit or more importantly - guild progression)For example, I rarely use my Alchemy CDs. If a guildie wanted them for whatever reason they'd be welcome to them.

The way i see it, Like i have actually had to do in the past is this.The gold is a favor / benefit of paying another person's wow time. Like, say Jack has no wow time, and i pay his wow time. I, later on, want to buy a mechanohog. He gives me 10k gold to buy it. Why? I gave him wow time.And there is such thing has permanent disability. I was temp-disabled and my dad is permanently. We were in a car accident with some drunk drivers a long time ago, and due to that, my work choices are slim, and his are none. And let me tell you another thing...the gov does NOT pay a whole lot for disabled folk. My dad's check wont even cover half a month of rent in most, if not all places. And that's for a whole month.

@Stella"In a sense, Blizzard are selling gold too by the back door. Let's say the Celestial Steed were available in game for 10,000 gold, or £20 from a website. In that case, buying it from Blizzard for £20 is the same as paying £20 for 10,000 gold, which is gold buying (at ripoff prices!), so it's difficult to come down too hard on Wow players who buy gold when Blizzard is trying to get a slice of the same market too."So let's make up a scenario that isn't actual reality, then say Blizz is bad for doing it. Wait, what?
