Here is what I consoder the best quote from the article, and is something that never occured to me:

"No auto-attack, server-authenticated UI, decentralized market, random skill point gain? there is a common thread uniting all of these: Each and every one of these systems seems to be designed around foiling the exploits used by FFXI's real money traders. While these systems will likely yield some dividends in the future, right now it feels a bit like they're slowly killing the entire player population with compulsory chemo therapy to prevent a few cases of cancer from taking root. Essentially, rather than focusing on making the game more enjoyable, Square Enix has chosen to make the game easier for them to manage."

No doubt folks hate RMTs, but at what cost do you try to stop them from influencing the game? I would gladly put up with RMTs (they are in every single MMO in existence, so we are used to them by now) if it meant these problems with FFXIV were solved.

SE tried for years to manage the RMT problem in FFXI with gameplay changes rather than actually rooting them out. It was a colossal failure that almost destroyed the game as the RMT continued to flourish. Only when they formed a department who's job it was to actively eliminate RMT did they get it under control.

And it seems they are going to do it all over again in FFXIV

I thought of it first:
