    Sometimes you do the time despite not doing the crime.

    Old news, been posted before.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    1. This news is too old!

    2. This news has been proved to be a unreal news.

    3. If you're a gold buyer, and if you really got the gold farmed by the prisoners, that means you won't be banned by Blizzard, because the gold is safe.

    Yes....because if poeple did not buy gold these prisoners could have stayed in a 5 star resort....really they seem to be getting the good end of the stick. I am pretty sure they would have done worse jobs then gaming if they did not had to game all day.

    there are more people in prison in the U.S. than any other country in the world....I'm sure a lot of them are there for unjust reasons as well (in fact I KNOW a lot of them are there for unjust reasons.) so don't act like china is worse then the "FREE" country know as the United States of America.

    Not to mention maintaining an illegal prisoner camp in a country where they can 'bypass' human rights and torture.

    Yes, but our government does not throw people in jail for speaking out. A LOT of prisoners in China did nothing wrong, whereas with us its about 40%. Which, with any justice system, is unavoidable.

     

    And this news is pretty old.

    Look up wiki leaks and manning. He is in jail for speaking out against the US. We are just the same as everyone else. We are just better at hiding it.

    A quote from an unnamed official chinese source in response to a mmorpg journalist:

    There were those of us who fought against it, but in the end we could not keep up with the expense involved in the xp race, the spamming race, and the phishing race. At the same time our people grumbled for more content and more macro programs. Our prisoner gold farming scheme cost us just a small fraction of what we had been spending on civilian gold farming in a single year. The deciding factor was when we learned that your country was working along similar lines, and we were afraid of a gold farming gap.

    The American gold farming economy has got to keep up with this threat. We cannot allow a gold farming gap! Call your representative today and demand that our prisoners be put to work gold farming every western mmo there is.

    Pretty funny you have a beef with people buying WoW gold because of a scandal like this, try looking at the Diamond business. Moving on.

    Anyone that buys gold from farmers is just as guilty as the prison guards. If people didnt buy it, there would be no market. PLEASE dont buy from gold farmers - you are just perpetuating the cycle. And its Cheating.

    I know people that have been arrested for Marijuana which shouldn't be illegal since it is a victimless crime, but besides that we have people constantly being detained for being "terrorists" and even those of us that aren't in jail are less, and less free every day. have you tried to fly on a plane recently? the TSA will grope you, or look at you naked (your choice) we are no longer free, and china is going to bury us. ahh well I'm just going to watch it burn. :)

    This piece of news may very well explain two of the great misteries puzzling the MMORPG industry:

     

    It explains why I always had the feeling that themepark gameplay mechanics got that slight touch of sadic punishment in it..

     

    And it also explains where those millions WoW subs come from..

    have you ever farmed in a game because you needed enough gold for something? I wouldn't consider that "playing"
