I think you vastly underestimate not only how many botters are actually out there, but also how much gold can be made through botting. This is what ACTUALLY happens.Botters set up accounts. See the S. Multiple accounts. Like, loads of them.Botters bot there way to 85.Botters farm mats and vendor them (quicker and safer than AHing them)Botters sell their excess gold (keeping enough for their main accounts) to gold sellers for peanuts (it's a little bit on the side, after all. As long as it covers the cost of the account over time, it's profit for nothing.)Gold sellers sell you gold for dirt cheap because... they bought it for practically nothing.Repeat for every account simultaneously.1000g is nothing in today's economy... that's why you find trade spammers advertising so cheap. Gold is plentiful, so it's value depreciates. Not to mention that Blizzard cannot... or will not... ban these accounts straight away because of a "lack of evidence" or whatever. And even when they are banned, a lot of them are reopened within a few days anyway upon appeal (something Blizzard DON'T tell you when they publish their banwave numbers)I'm not saying that there aren't script-kiddies out there robbing people of their precious golds, but with the authenticator that method has been made much more difficult and, as such, not economically viable for gold sellers.Believe what you will, but as I said when you look into the subject beyond what Blizzard tells you (and without jumping to baseless conclusions) you'll find that actually most of the gold that is sold to the idiots who buy it comes from botters who simply farm the mats and sell them on.

And I think it's cute to see ignorant fools such as yourself attempting to justify your misguided opinions by pointlessly dismissing facts without any evidence or references to the contrary other than "Blizzard told me so". *gnihihi*
