That's what many of us thought at the time but according to Bashiok and other folks at Blizzard the AH had nothing to do with it. They designed the game's social functions and things like the AI around online and blah blah can't remove it blah blah. They even went as far as saying they couldn't have the game without it, nope sorry no patch is possible. Too bad it was a huge load of shit.
