Diablo III Auction Houses Return Today

The Diablo III Forums have the latest on the auction house disaster in Diablo III. The reaction to the situation from the playerbase of Blizzard's action/RPG sequel seems resolute, as every one of the threads in their Popular Topics list relates to the situation. There's the post from Blizzard about the auction house being offline, a thread about how the increased monster density in version 1.0.8 is a positive development, and after that the discontent shows, as 40% of those threads request a rollback to a point before the exploit occurred (which Blizzard has said they won't do), 30% of them are petitions demanding said rollback, and the remaining thread suggests a class action suit. The auction houses are still offline following the inadvertent free money Tuesday, and word is they are taking a laissez-faire to bringing them back:

In order to allow auctions posted yesterday to expire naturally, we've decided to keep the gold and real-money Auction House in maintenance mode until tomorrow morning. We're currently targeting 10:00 a.m. PDT, but will provide an update for everyone at 9:00 a.m. PDT. At that point, we'll be able to give a much more solid ETA as to when the service will be up and running (or, conversely, if additional downtime is needed).

Gold trades are still disabled for the time being. Once we have an ETA for those being re-activated, we'll provide another update in this thread, as well.
