No, it is simple supply and demand.

Has anyone considered that manipulating the market is just another way to play the game? I take great pleasure in trading on the exchange- it's fun to game the system to run a profit. You might not like that, because you don't want to pay the real market value for your items: that doesn't mean you need to ruin it for me.

Incorrect.

Theft is to take property without permission or legal right.

If I'm trading with another person in a voluntary transaction, then selling to a 3rd party at a markup, nobody has been stolen from. That's an entirely voluntary, permitted exchange.

If there are gold farmers in STO, they gotta be doing it wrong.

There has got to be more lucrative games out there that will more than net you 2c/hour.

Go where the money is asian fellers!

I salute you my fellow trader

Sadly the exchange is not working right these days.

Heck, I do that as well. People like selling Particle traces for a single ec for some strange reason.

Really cool when they're Methogenic Particle Traces that normally go for about 100k.
