Feb 4th 2011 11:57AM I'm looking forward to the influx of new people that I can use goblin tactics on. I intend to undercut and then exploit there use of APM / TSM to buy up their lower than matierial cost scrolls. I expect I'll make some wedge as I have in the past. I love it when you make posts like these. $$$$ Ker-ching! $$$

Sep 23rd 2010 4:58AM This addon has been arond for ages and unfortunately is widely used.
There was a post approximately a year ago on MMO Champion about its use and how to control the glyph market. Over night prices on all glyphs plummeted and the profession went from being relatively profitable to almost impossible to sell anything unless your constantly canceling and re listing items over and over or using "goblin tactics". Thus reducing prices further. I expect the same will happen again.
In my opinion; posts widely publicising the use of addons like this is pretty reckless and destroys in game economies for some professions. As the number of people using the addon on each server sky rockets and the downward spiral of rampant undercutting grows exponentially.
There is a counter argument that goes "Why should only a select few be allowed knowledge of these addons, its not fair that a small handful of people should be allowed to make the money, what about everyone else" - While in part I agree with this statement, the information has been "out there" for an extremely long time and if you didn't do your research before now then more fool you. However the real issue with this addon is that over usage by large numbers of people has a real detrimental effect on all people of all levels that use the AH as their main source of income, everyone including noobs and pro's.
Some insider tips are best kept quiet in my humble opinion.
Good job I have more money that god and no longer need to worry about things affecting me anymore.
