Why would they be fucked...They can trade, they can receive anything.They just can't give away a lot which isn't really a large handicap I think...I do think it helps fight gold farmers though because they'll have to buy memberships now. :P

You love Jagex too much.

No, I still think Jagex made some pretty epic mistakes along the way. :PHowever, I do understand their strategies usually and this one isn't that bad.The point of this strategy is not just making it harder for gold farmers to sell their gold.Let's be honest, it's not that hard because all they have to do is earn their gold, buy membership and sell the gold before they get banned like Huygens said.However this changes one thing: in order for gold farming to stay profitable for the farmers they'll have to increase their prices to cover membership costs.If Jagex manages to ban a gold farmer within 2 days that'd mean roughly 15 memberships a month for a single gold farmer. :o

This doesnt help Runescape at all,I mean, they just have to make 7 euros extra to get the same profit as before the update, which is like 2-3m? BS if you ask me :P

Just something I noticed over the years. Nothing wrong with it. I prefer this behavior over people who complain over every move and update, yet continue to play heavily.I just don't like that new players can't freely throw money to other new players. Probably isn't a big deal cause free players are a bunch of greedy bastards.
