The problem with this whole "You can still form groups the old way by finding people in Trade" alternative is that in order for it to atually be a viable alternative, you need to have a sizable portion of the community already doing that.Sure the facility to use public channels to form groups is still there, but no one does it. Theres no point for a non-tank to go to Trade and start asking for "LF tank/healer and some dps for random hc" because if no one is even really looking for group members there in the first place, its not going to work. Same reason the raid browser failed; no one actually used it, so no one used it.When I've been at the AH I've watched some poor bastard of a dps sit in Trade begging for a tank or healer for a random, and everytime he gets ignored. As much as we like to say "Do it the old fashioned way if you dont like LFG!" the fact is if no one else is doing that, then its not a viable option.
