This affects the entire hobby. It affects any of us who buy cards at retail outlets. It affects the potential future of the hobby as many collectors, young and old, may lose interest after buying pack after pack at Walmart and never getting much to be happy about. It affects the Hobby shops because people can jump on Ebay and grab 10 "hot packs" for the price of one box at the shop. Anyone can argue whether it is legal, illegal, right, wrong or whatever, but anytime you are dishonestly cheating others, it is wrong. Also keep in mind that this does happen at some hobby shops as well. If you frequent a hobby shop and found out the owner was searching all opened boxes, how would you feel about the money you have spent on packs over the years? If any pack searching situations were brought into moral court, I think we all know how it would come out.
