I don't like people using cash to buy gold. I don't like that it happens, I don't like that it exists, and I don't like what it's done to the game.However...It's a reality in the game that people can, and will, do this. There is demand, and where there is demand, there will be supply. It's the law of economics, and no amount of moral harumphing can change this. There will always be people who want to buy gold, and there will always be people who want to sell gold.This is the unpleasent reality, and it's an unrefutable fact of life. It is as inevitable as death. Whether you like it, or do not like it... it will not change.Now, Blizzard up until now has taken the high road... and we currently have gold selling being an industry bringing in millions of dollars a year, making it the largest and most profitable form of cybercrime. Blizzard only has two options, address the demand, or continue as they are now. They've tried the high road, and millions of dollars are being paid for stolent digital merchandise. Is introducing an alternative that allows the demand to be serviced without resorting to criminal acts and computer invasion really the 'immoral' or 'greedy' route?Fact is, one Guardian Cub sold on the Auction House = One account that isn't hacked. Think about that.
