Please don't take this as an insult Basil, but I love this column in spite of the fact that I've never actually learned anything new from it. I always expect to read some new "trick" and I'm always treated to just plain old common sense. Nothing in this column has ever been truly revealing about any market. And that's why I love it (i think). People crying about trade secrets being given away are just silly. Every week you give valuable info, and if more folks used this common sense approach, we'd see much more market stability. I'd love to see the day when people realize you shouldn't routinely sell items for less than the cost of the mats. Big tip right there! ;)

lol. Once I figured out that last point I sudenly started making Gold off the AH. Who'da thunk it! Only wish I'd come to that realization before Cata... I might have been able to afford that chopper I always drooled over.

I don't take it as an insult, but you're right about the content. This is really all common sense, but there are a lot of people who don't think in economic terms who will change their behavior based on common sense advice. I try to avoid "zomg, do [x] for leet gold", because it's short sighted, and won't really work for anyone for long because of the medium it's being broadcast on. I try to teach people to fish instead of throwing fish at them.

You would be utterly surprised as to how little common sense has to do with a great deal of peoples lives.
