What many proponents apparently fail to realize is that all those shady 3rd party sellers from the D1 and D2 days will simply move into D3 and conduct their business "legitimately."They'll hack or bot or possibly even farm the 'old fashioned way' (with a sweatshop of people working in shifts). They'll post the loot on the AH just like Joe from North Dakota would, only their overhead is a lot less... they can undercut the average player easily to almost always guarantee a sale.And "cashing out" ... I can't wait to see how they finagle that with the IRS and similar agencies. None of this is good for the game. This type of economics play works in EVE Online because it was built to be part ship combat, part space mercantilism simulator, from the ground up. Diablo has been about demon-slaying and that's what should be getting people psyched, not the cash shop AH crap that they're shoehorning in to make an extra buck. Rest assured, that's what they're after too... that extra buck they can make from the proceeds of each sale.
