There were only about 5,000 posts in beta about this problem.

There are lot of ways to buy something you can't use or didn't intend to buy...
  • Item requirements are misrepresented in tooltip (it has happened).
  • Lag. (did I buy it? ... wait... wait... OK I guess not *click* oh now I have two.)
  • Trying to preview.
  • Derped and made a mistake.

So yes I'm 100% behind both a confirmation dialogue and a refund option.
Social features; cantinas, player housing, guild cities, these are what SWG did right.
PvP specific gear is the best way to kill PvP by segregating your player base.

The biggest reason to have a filter system is to stop people from taking up GMs time, because if I mistakenly buy an item thats exactly the same as another one except for a set bonus(which Ive done on my Elemental/Resto Shaman) Ill be bothering a GM about it.

Refunds are on a time limit, and once the items modified in any way its non-refundable, and you need to have the item in your inventory to trade it back. I really cant see how its exploitable or how it would prevent you from buying the correct item in any way.
