Now I didn't want to see AH go.. I like safe\secure trading but if it is going to go then I can see why boa legs would be good. Unlike the OP the reality is the bots and gold sellers were happy to see the AH go because it means they have a larger market and more control over prices.
Honestly if you were in favor of removing the AH but are against BOA then I believe you are one of the many who have a vested interest in cheating, botting, and gold selling. It isn't a question of whether bots or RMT would be stopped, that's stupid. BOA would stop the easy sale of legs though and that is undeniable.
