Meh, I still haven't figured out why it's okay for folks to automate and profit off of the auction house, but it's a bannable offense for folks to automate and level their characters. Is anyone really surprised there's a large gap in income from folks who can run upwards of 1,000+ concurrent auctions and folks who can't keep 1,000 gold in their pockets?It is what it is, just like folks who raid and folks who don't -- it's just a means of social/game stratification at this point.

"Automate" is a bit generous.Addons do let you manage your enterprise better, but there are very strict rules Blizzard has in place that the addons have to follow that prevent it from ever truly being automated. Hardware events (mouse click, pressing a key, etc) are required for every item you want to post on the AH, for crafting, for buying items off the AH; there's really no way to just set it up, walk away from the computer, and come back to a pile of gold.It's nowhere near the same as botting. It's more comparable to using addons like questhelper, cartographer, gatherer, etc. Do they make leveling easier? Sure. Do they do the work for you? Nope.
