Gold Sellers and their inevitable spam?

The currency in game is credits... so the market will be there. I know it is usually a losing battle in most games and players have probably become accustomed to receiving these tels and seeing their spam in all general chat channels. Some games seem to have given up on fighting the tide.. while other MMORPG's actually do a pretty good job combatting these guys.

Has Bioware made any statements regarding this?

There is a developer post on this thread: http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...=84522&page=10

And it basically says, yes they will be addressing it, but they aren't going to announce what kind of measures they will take because it would defeat the purpose.

I hope they do a better job than other MMOs, at least what I've seen in WoW, there are constantly spammers in capital cities yelling their gold prices.

That was the best part about Galaxies, walking inside a cantina and watching people's twi'lek alts dancing for monies.
