Why not stay on like they are doing, spamming general chat, and operating on the "black" market? They can undercut cheapest prices on RMAH and still make more than they would actually using RMAH. So far blizzard hasn't seemed to ban anyone, and blizzard basically admitted they aren't paying any attention to reports anyway.
They will be able to farm/bot items and sell them for money directly which is less time consuming and the value of gold will just continue dropping as money overflows from gold botting. If you really think that the farming companies won't be using the RMAH when the value of $ per million gold keeps dropping then I don't know what else to say, you're hopeless.
