Look at the weekly xp gains for Smithing. The top 100 is normal because they are all making Elder Rune Burial. But the Top 1000 is comically high because +4 platebodies are 2m xp/hour. And you can almost break even selling +5.


90-99 Smithing shouldn't take 4 hours and cost 15M gp.

Of course you can break even doing +5 stuff. It's required for burial and thus a pre-requisite for using the best training method after all. Players wanting the fastest xp do not want to bother upgrading their stuff first. That is special to the smithing skill after all, since most artisan skills produce stuff being worth less than the material used to create it, since the xp of those items has already been squished out. But yeah - that's what burial is for - with the slight addition you do not gain anything, but xp for the materials invested.

Smithing never removed a single coin from the economy - unlike summoning or construction, which already come with some fix coin cost alongside the player provided material for instance. So basically you rant about player made prices in that aspect.

Xp rates are a different topic (but yes of course they will be high with bxp, dxp we, pulse cores - and whateverthehell you could additionally include - you're getting more than 4 times the xp you would normally), but the remainder of that post just is nonsense, born due to not understanding how the skill and the economy works.
