    I have ran the mail order operation for a local small business for many years to suppliment our store front sales. Here's an idea for these brick and mortar businesses complaining of the internet bullies taking their sales... GET A WEBSITE and take advantage of this so-called unfair playing field. I have doubts that your business went belly up because Amazon doesn't charge sales tax. Maybe first you should look at your unpersonal, unhelpful employees? Or maybe your marketing wasn't reaching your target customer? If I had to make a choice on who is a bigger threat, I'd say it's the local mass volume Big Box stores sending ads out to everyone in the city showing items at or below cost because their dishwasher/vacuum/refrigerator sales are making up for it, not Amazon not collecting sales tax. I honestly can't remember anytime in the past that I lost a sale because I was asked to price match Amazon or Newegg..

    One thing that is big in Warcraft is community made mods to things like the UI. What the hackers do is create some sort of mod, add a keylogger, and post it for download on the popular mod sites. Although in the game you can choose for it to save your username so the only thing you need to type is your password (which only gives them half of what they need) a lot of people apparently don't do this and end up typing account name and password. A week or so later they sign into a naked character and no gold.
