RL Example: I joined a realm(Icecrown) that a coworker was on. He was level 70 and was nowhere near his Epic Flying mount. He sent me 250g seed money and within 2 months, I sent him 4,000g. I spent 20 minutes per day, 5 days a week playing the AH.
The AH is perfect for the folks that take the time to learn what is a good buy and what will never sell, even at a deal. The AH is an in-game profession. Take the time to level your profession.
