I see auctions turning into a joke within the first 6 months of the game..
That is a very interesting point. Does Blizzard actively police the auction house in it's other games? That might give some insight into how they intend to manage price manipulation (also supply/demand).
Price-fixing is illegal IRL, so this might allow Blizzard to prosecute the farmers in a way we had never dreamed of. The regulation of this auction house might be very nice, we could find it extremely enjoyable.
