Mar 13th 2009 5:44PM You need to understand economics. People who bot, typically do it to level reputations and their on characters, not to sell them. Those that sell their characters have no impact on the economy as they level an 80 toon and sell them for $500-800 and a make a profit basically playing WoW (good for them). The last portion, sell gold to 3rd parties. They make very little real world money for their efforts, and in the end, it doesnt hurt the economy at all. It actually stimulates the economy by driving down the price, providing a steady stream of needed items to the Auctionhouse, etc. If they didnt exist you would find it more difficult to find the items you want, they would cost more, and you'd would likely be complaining about the amount of hours it takes to create X crafted item.
Thank you Glider and other companies who have made a wonderful application that not only enhances World of Warcraft, but has also brought countless hours of pleasure to your members. I hope you can appeal this decision and make way for more innovative technologies in the realm of Massively Multiplayer Online Games.
