For me this kind of nickel and dime behavior is killing Blizzards reputation, they are completely out to lunch adding this kind of feature to a non free game, and its a sign of just how morally bankrupt Blizzard have become.
Items being sold for real money will happen even without this system, at least it's officially supported and I can get a piece of the pie too.
Yeah. The author should whine some more. And the Nickle and Diming as he put it... well who says you can't sell it elsewhere? What a baby.
The best part about this is that everybody ignores Blizzard's other comment, which clearly stated that there was a regular in-game gold Auction House that involved no real money whatsoever - if people don't want to use the real-money AH, they don't have to. And the whole nickle/dime trash is grating on my nerves - it's a flat effing fee, not a percentage. Blizz could charge a 50-cents-per-item fee, and it wouldn't change, whether you were selling it for a $1 or $100. People need to STFU and get over it.
