The people that are complaining about the prices obviously dont have much experience on the end game scene.
Actually I have experience in endgame and have helped run Oceanids as a co leader for Sky/Sea/Limbus events for close to a year before I quit due to RL obligations. I've camped kings before over the years I've played the game. My issue with what you do is what Baurun stated:
Cen goes out to camp NQ turtle not for the drops, not for BB item, but to keep anyone else from getting comfortable with the idea that camping "might" yield a chance at fighting these NM's. Cen camps NQ to keep others from camping em, that's it.
There is nothing wrong with a LS selling items, but when you have specific LS's openly botting NM's and end up cornering the market to sell items at whatever price they want without competitive prices from other LS's who could get the claim, then yes that is a big deal. This is why I don't involve myself with Ground Kings anymore...people like your group take the fun out of it as most shells know they stand very little chance against the $2500 Bot until SE fixes it.
To the OP, might I suggest that you get some KS together and get your BB items through KSNM if you can. There were people in Oceanids that got their BB items that way. It's "Free" and you can end up putting money in your own pocket instead of in the pocket of others filled with Greed. Edited, Feb 24th 2009 10:35am by ImmortalAlchemist

Seriously, you won't be @#%^ing happy until SE releases a full sized Bahamut avatar you can @#%^ing ride and use to kill players that annoy you, one shot AV/PW/Shinryuu, and burn the FFXI nations to the @#%^ing ground for fun. All while actually restoring mp used instead of costing any.
