Well i would certainly blame those poor people for being impulsive on their purchase . All RPGs have a basic economy built into it. You don't spend your last penny on a +1 sword when you know you ll be getting a +2 sword for free next day.

I know what you mean but this is a social game as much as a RPG game. Social influences gets amplified by the protection of Internet anonymity.

Unless Blizzard start replacing AH with vendoring machines, people will just have to wise up and balance their spending
