    About time, logging into a couple new spam mails each day in WoW was a pain.

    I haven't gotten a single spam whisper or mail since the patch, and that's with 8 to 10 hours playing a day. :p 

    Maybe i'm just lucky..............

    I want to say extremely lucky, or its your character name shows up to far down the list and they already got banned. For some reason my name is always at the top..........

    Trial account also can no longer send tells to players unless a player has sent them a tell. Now the spammers are sitting in front of auction houses spamming their messages or trying to invite you into a raid group and spam you with their message. They're getting pretty desperate.

    People making real money off a video game buy selling fake items that have no real value. now there are going to be lawsuits over some fake items from a videogame that dumbass people buy. WOW indeed...

    I don't think its very strange. I bet there is something in those User Agreements no one ever reads that people breaking over and over agian. Look at Barrens Chat for an example.........

    I'm reading one of the post under that gamespot article, and he/she/it said Blizzard should go in the buisness of "gold farming" themselves and make money for their crap. I thought that was retarded until I thought about games already charging for more crap like buying different heroes in the Marvel game, or buying songs for GH2. Blizzard could sell their rare items and make money.

    Anyway, this dosn't concern me, because I'm one of the few gamers who bought WOW, played it, and didn't care for it. Game only lasted 2 weeks for me.

    Ya know what? I havent see a damn message since a group *tried* to spam the trade chats on monday. Will this be the end? Doubt it. There are some people that will keep on buying and they will just have to rely on word of mouth for awhile.

    As for me... 2 lvls in Outland has netted me 50g. Outland: Where the gold flows like spice (and the freaking Crust Bursters are worst than a horde raid group on Darkshire)
