Why must the AH take a cut from your profit? Its not like the goblins do any thing with the gold.

Of course goblins do things with the gold! They stack it up in secret storage rooms, like the no-longer-secret ones in Booty Bay. They swim in it and roll around in it.

The Goblins only run the neutral AH.It's to curb inflation. The same reason there are repairs.

Most of the auctioneers in Orgrimmar are now goblins, too, which may have been what he meant. To be less of a smartass - have you ever listed something on Ebay? They take a cut of the seller's profit too. I don't know how it works with, say, Christie's, but I assume something similar is how all auction companies make their money. Lore-wise, that's the purpose it'd serve, paying the salaries of the auctioneers, and whatever behind-the-scenes mages do the arcane work that lets a bank alt in Stormwind see the gems I just handed to an auctioneer in Ironforge.
