Much like in real life it's impossible to avoid the taint.Wait that sounds wrong...Much like in real life it's damn near impossible to be a 100% ethical seller or consumer in World Of Warcraft. And you would certainly never reach gold cap. The only way I could see someone being completely ethical in their gold making endeavors is if they only sell to people they know. Conversely those people would also have to adhere to the same standards, and abscond from ever purchasing or selling anything to someone they do not personally know.A substantial amount of the gold on any server has been distributed or generated by either illegal or immoral means. Whether this is redistribution via hacked accounts, or materials gathered by bots, it's all rather... well... tainted.Outside of Azeroth the same thing is true. Unless you were born and raised in some off-the-grid hippie commune where everything used by that society is created by that society you have contributed to slave labor, cruelty to animals, or some form of exploitation. This reason alone makes me hate self righteous hippies as much as capitalist douche bags. On the one hand the hippies are annoying because they actually believe they are morally superior for not shopping at Wal-Mart. On the other hand no one, anywhere has gotten rich without exploiting the labor of others, which is why free market advocates, most libertarians, and every single adherent of Objectivism can be viewed as either evil or woefully out of touch with reality. The latter is a rather prevalent human quality I'm afraid.Damn it now you have me ranting.CURSE YOU FOX!
