So, people resorted to the only method they can, spamming their ads in the 3 major cities. Anets response is to make things even more difficult for these people who just want to sell or buy and get on with their lives? This is somewhat past idiotic and somewhat closer to diabolical.
    If I read the OP well only the general chat would be concerned and not the trade chat.

    As the general chat was never intended for trading I fail to see how the block on spamming would be a bad thing where it is concerned.

    On a side note I also agree with Jayydestroyer that the party search is a nice way to post a sales advert that can be consulted by anyone in town, it is not perfect but it beats reading a scrolling trade chart every day.

    Use it when they bump the character limit up to normal chat.

    from what it sounded like, she said to spread the word that spamming trades in local chat would be enforced soon. she didn't say anything on how they were going to do it but I would expect it would just be a temporary silencing placed on that person. how they're going to program something to decide what is and what isn't trade is beyond me unless they plan on having a mod sit in towns all the time.

    I still don't understand how a game like City of Heroes that had no in game economy got an auction house before Guild Wars, a game that pretty much runs on its in game economy . ..

    What an absolutely moronic thing to do.

    If you spam in local chat you deserve ban.. it doesn't matter if there is Auction House or something like that.. spam in trade if you must but leave local alone...

    And to think, this all can be solve if Anet made an auction house or gave us that promised of a "trade improvement". To the latter...promises promises, no wonder people thinks that Anet is lost and confused and lacking credibility.
    Ease up.. nobody said anything about "banning". They only said "blocking", which they do to some extent now with the repeat limit and the block on the "WTS" term. If they extend/improve this blocking, that's fine. Why jump to conclusions that are wrong, and then go off the rails about it.
