Whenever I see 50+ stacks of ore on the AH posted at a low price in the morning, I just assume someone left their gathering bot program running overnight. However, on a low pop server there are a lot fewer people buying the gold that these botters sell, so you'd expect there to be less gathering bots running. I will accept that it's possible that it was done manually but it seems unlikely. When I do my own gathering I average maybe 12 stacks an hour, and I get bored long before a couple hours pass.As a crafter, a large part of my profits rely on access to large volumes of gathered materials at low cost. This means the more botters on my server working the better it is for me and my customers. High pop servers mean more people buying gold, which means more rich customers, which leads to more botters selling them gold, which means more raw material supplies for crafters. It's a win-win system.
