I have 61k Life (to your 87k) and +500 All Res (to your +750) (no lifesteal but some random life on kill) and I feel very comfortable doing MP1 (one or two gear upgrades and I feel like I can comfortably switch to MP2), never used a shield.
But then I never expected to stand in Arcane Beams for prolonged periods of time ... I used to play wizards so a slightly kite-y playstyle just feels natural, if there's stuff on the ground I move.
I'm fine with the risk of random desyncs/lag - if I were to desync while fighting an elite pack I would of course die but I haven't experienced a desync in at least 3 weeks (and never had a disconnect in the past several months).

my guess is that it was just two stories that got conflated into one - on the one hand the ability to cancel auctions via clock reset and accompanying speculation if this could be used to dupe gold and on the other hand the existence of an item dupe on the Asian realm.

There are several forms of color blindness ranging from a complete lack of the ability to distinguish colors, over red/green and blue/yellow color blindness to impaired but essentially functional vision of any of the RGB colors.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Then there can be differences in the way your brain processes the color information sent by your cones (some of them probably cultural) which can also result in various forms and degrees of color blindness.
"I am color-blind and can distinguish this just fine" is a pretty useless statement.

the authenticator isn't a profit center for Blizzard, but simply a tool they provide for their customers
Interesting... I've had accounts which in my better days had six digits in them... yet the banks and brokers involved never tried to sell me a plastic tchotchke to compensate for their online security holes.
in my country that's pretty standard - all banks I deal with migrated from a simple TAN list to either an authenticator or a mobile Tan system (where you get the TAN sent per SMS to your mobile phone), without it you cannot make any transactions online.
(the problem with simple TAN lists was that people would happily enter several TANs at once into some phishing site - one of them could be used to log the customer into his real bank account and the others were stored for fraudulent withdrawals etc)
Even better, one bank requires me to use an authenticator despite not allowing me to set my own password for their online banking services which rightaway eliminates one of the major causes for "hacked" accounts (same password used on malicious or compromised site).
How else are banks going to protect themselves from users that are stupid enough to fall for the most obvious scams and oblivious to even the most simple best practices?
they can't realistically force you to patch your operating system and browser, they can't force you to run an antivirus scan, they can't force you not to reuse passwords if they allow you to set one - and yet you want them to bear the cost inflicted by incompetent users, blaming their security model?
An authenticator does nothing to protect the business from security flaws on their side - someone with access to their database does not need an authenticator to access any information within.
An authenticator does one thing only - it protects users from their own idiocy (and experience shows that this is very much required).
