I think the real money auction house is a great idea, as it will definitely eliminate some of the out of country farming that would surely happen, as well as selling items/gold online. Instead, blizzard has kindly created a real money auction house so players don't have to buy from a shady online dealer, they can buy from another player, with the transaction supervised and taken care of by Blizzard!
Good stuff, keep it up!
