OK - its Sunday - the kids are beating me up and generally that means its time to talk about all things fiscal. Now, dont get me wrong - I love a good fiscal stimulus me....I mean who doesn't? However I have a sort of complaint (although thats far too strong a word for my feelings which are more top level "Meh" around this)
I spent an afternoon brushing the fox here in UR - a pleasureable activity I think we'll all agree and then shoved it all up on auction for a fair price. However the "man" here has taken 7% off me! I mean 7%! EACH TIME!
Now i'm pretty sure this is an American owned game thingy but thats the sort of charge I would expect in the old USSR - not the land of the free (copyright Fox Corp).
Serious point though - whats the whole 7% thing about? if it went somewhere like a monthly prize draw for Players i'd get it but it just goes "poof" into the interweb - so therefore to me seems meaningless. I know players in the past have apparently used the auction site to gain extra storage but this could easily solved by keeping items on there until either sold or an expired time. Whatever the solution - to me the 7% seems pointless as its not used for anything and therefore, I think, sucks.
Didn't you lot kick some tea in the water once and say something about taxation and representation? Well i'm kicking the flamming Humbaba, Earthshaker and indeed the Cloud 11 Smoothy into the Sea of Non Specificity - Repeal the 7% listing thing!!
Oh and don't start me on 2 currants to send a mail message......I mean!!...........
