So let me get this straight....
A few of you are quietly complaining either that making gold is too boring this way, or complaining that the ...let's call them "dedicated mat farmers"....are posting the stuff too cheaply, ruining the gold making efforts of others less fortunate.
Its not our job, its Blizz's, to get rid of the "dedicated mat farmers".
While they are here and polluting our pristine markets with cargo containers of ore and herbs, it's the duty of those with wealth to make sure we pick the ah clean of all underpriced goods, so that our less-privileged brethren can go back to listing their elementium ore at 60g a stack. Buying and processing all the cheap goods isn't just a profit venture, its a sacred patriotic act to keep the economy afloat.
So go forth, young capitalists, and save your respective worlds. You have my blessing.
