- Blizzard is undoing the damage by hand. All legitimate transactions made before the AH went down will still be there. You'll get to keep items you bought, and you'll get to keep gold from items you sold.
- All gold that was gained or traded illegitimately before the AH went down is being removed. Your money is not being devalued. No money has entered circulation because of this.
- If you read the above two points, and have the intelligence of a lab rat or better, you now know that it will be as if no bug ever occurred, except we didn't have access to the AH system for a little while.
And while I'm on the subject:
- AH "flipping" is an actual market process. Without it, the stockmarket, fast food chains, retail stores, and basically every product-based company on the planet wouldn't exist. It's only the most important idea in economics since man started trading goats.
If you don't like when people buy your items and turn them around for more money, set a higher buyout price. Duh.
And no, I don't flip. I'm too busy having fun killing ****.
