Aww. Let's be honest now Fetz. Here.... I'll fix that for you........

"I want to be able to actually sell stuff for a price that I think it's worth, regardless of whether it'll ever sell at that price. The D3 AH is so big that the chance of actually selling something for the price that I want someone to buy it for is ridiculously low, even if it has decent stats.
A perfect example of this really is Steam. They make money despite selling stuff at deep discount because.... lo' and behold, they move VOLUME that would otherwise never sell.
I just get a little ruffled at statements like that because I hear similar statements in regards to the AH on WoW all the time. Arguments where people whine that they can't make money off the AH or they have to spend all their time in Orgrimmar spamming trade chat in order to make gold. In most of these cases..... it's just people pissed off that they're not making as much as they think they should make. I don't feel a ton of sympathy because these are frequently the same people who will say shit like this:
Nothing against you Fetz, but it drives me nuts when people will complain about the WoW gen-pop wanting hand-outs and not wanting to work for their stuff, that people just don't want to have to do anything to be "successful", and then those same people flip around and don't take their own medicine, and won't do what needs to be done to be successful.
The feeling you have; "I do not feel the need to be up to where I should be with other players", is called drive or passion to accomplish something.
