Little tip...I often think about posting a brand new thread about something that's already been beaten to death...then I think..."ya know what? I'm gonna let the groundswell of support about this speak for itself."
So, why you insisted on forging ahead with adding your voice to the list, and defending this sentiment, when there are far bigger issues to fight for, really confuses me. Especially since you, like me, have unequipped items and noticed your error before. See, we've gotten around having to beg for Blizzard to change this. Others haven't. They need to be walked by the hand through life because, even though they know ID/equip/sell are all the same ONE button, they still insist on blasting through their ID process so fast, they not only fail to notice they've mistakenly equipped something they didn't intend to, they also vend so fast that they sell items that cost hundreds of millions of gold! Sometimes, REAL MONEY!
If people who play this game want to feel like the <1% of adults that flip precious goods like they're priceless antiques as a method of "steady income," then those "adults" should also act like REAL LIFE adults and treat their items like they're real.
Granted, in the ToU regarding the AH, people who buy "loot" with in-game gold don't actually own those items, Blizzard still does...so technically, they're paying in-game gold to kinda rent "loot" from them. Still, it FEELS like its theirs, so they should be responsible and take care of their items.
Long story short...if they changed this, I'd learn the new keys to use for what I want to do. But this is wildly unnecessary. People buy stuff, or pretend to buy stuff, they should treat said stuff with care. If they can't go slow enough to properly care for their items, they don't deserve to have them.
