I don't get how an auction house is like gambling, and I sure as hell don't understand how it's not ok when it's ok for them to have sites like ebay.

maybe they view it differently because what your buying is nothing more than pixels

the similarity i see is after the free listings you must spend a small amount of cash with the risk of losing it or makeing more kinda like gambling.

It's not just about gambling, the RMAH can be easily exploited by Blizzard to make more profit.

Image a casino that can change the rules of their games when they feel like it. It's the same with Diablo 3 only they will call it "balancing the game". There's nothing wrong with that, unless money is involved. Blizzard might not sell the items but they have full control over them, they can influence what sells and what doesn't.

The South Korean government is just trying to protect their people form shady business models like the RMAH.

5 people that have internet in SK? Do you even know what your talking about? South Korea isn't the same thing as North Korea. South Korea has one of the largest and richest online gaming cultures in this world.

South korea is known for playing numerous games online, among them including many MMORPG games. They had to implement a gaming curfew just to get people to stop a persistent gaming addiction.

And the guy below you agrees? Are people this ignorant?
