I've been harased lately by my competition in AH.I'm a fairly casual AHer, so i dont get why the rage.It came to a point where he sends me guerrilla harasing tells then ignores me so i cant reply.I have many of his alts on ignore and have reported him a couple of times, but he just keeps making new ones o having friends sending tells.Any clues aside from the reporting as to what can I do?

In your next "report an alt" ticket, document the history of this harassment, and each alt that you've ignored as a result. It might be useful to take screenshots of the harassment, as well, just in case.Make it clear that it isn't a single instance of harassment. GMs likely do not see that detail on the surface.

There is also the addon AGT: Automatic Goblin Therapist, for ignoring people in style.

Keep up the good work!Remember: every person wasting their time on you is one less actually competing.Oh, and be sure to include history and take screenshots of harassing behavior.

Start a blog where you do nothing but post screenshots of his ramblings and put a link to it on your realm forums. Generally, people who harass are feeling helpless because of your superior sense of economics. I've never gotten anything close to humorously or effectively trolled by a like minded competitor- they stick to fighting me tooth and nail on the AH, and we actually carry on quite civilized, if guarded, conversations in /tell. The wanna-be auctioneers who resort to trolling are generally bad at it for the same reason they're bad at auctioneering.

I recently took part in a spirited debate in trade chat after someone sent someone else a nasty tell after having their overpriced cobalt auctions undercut. The majority of people in mercilessly ridiculed the guy who was undercut, and at one point I made the comment, "It is one's own prerogative to price auctions as they see fit. If you don't like it, undercut or f*(% off."The next day, Blizzard gave me a slap on the wrist for making that comment. I wonder who that could have been.../rant
