I have to say, that title wasn't actually inspired by anything. Well, the disappearing stack of gil caused me to sigh. But I'm pretty sure no headcrabs were involved anywhere.
Large numbers of stupid people have been removed from the economy. This has put a damper on my sales. Now I have to actually check prices and demand and track history, instead of just throwing things at the auction house and getting massive amounts of gil in return. This is, to say the least, inconvenient.
On the other hand, the removal of so many truly stupid and incompetent players has been a good thing overall. However, now all the averagely stupid people seem to be concentrated in Lower Jeuno, shouting for people to join their fantastic new linkshells. You know, I have a lot of faith in a linkshell where the leader is reported to be an openly bought account that has been in trouble for cheating in the past. Then again it is a European linkshell, they're probably more comfortable handing over half of everything they earn without questioning. But I don't really get how they can be so cushy with the Arabs, I thought that was just an American thing.
Every month, the GMs purge the system of large amounts of stupid people. Undercutting fishbots, gilselling banks, botters, gilbuyers, and my favorite, incredibly stupid people who create new characters with the same credit card that was used to create a character that has already been banned.
I still have no idea where the headcrabs came in though.
