All you have to do to put the plat farmers out of business is set the starting bid on the Auction House at the value the game gives the item AUTOMATICALLY. DO NOT give the auctioner the choice on what the starting bid is. He can still set the buyout wherever he likes but the minimum bid will always be what the game assigns. That way they can't list and relist the same item over and over at several million gold until some stupid noob pays them real money for enough fake money to buy what they are selling. I for one am sick of getting tells from toon names that are just a bang on the keyboard and going on the AH and seeing everything so overpriced you want to give away all your possessions and go live in a Silver Flame monastery on the outskirts of Shavarath ministering to the poor confused Devils.
