    Nice attitude there.

    Let me tell you a story. When I was a child, some ******* broke into our house and pretty much wrecked the place. My father found out who it was and confronted him. Nothing ever came of it, and we eventually got everything settled.

    However, had my father actually hit the guy or whatever, he would have went to jail. Do you think, since he defended everything he has ever worked for, that he is a criminal?

    There a lot of people in jail for the most mundane crap, while people with DUI and stuff walk the streets. This world is unjust and unfair. To label all people who are in prison criminals that deserve no rights? You're worse then most of the people in there.

    Empathy goes a long way, and makes you a better person. Might not want to keep going down the road your on and becoming a sociopath.

    I'm surprised no one has posted a link to the gold farmers who make a living article. To the chinese that do it, it's not forced labor. They live there. They eat there. They make more than they would if they had to work in a factory or a mine. To them, it's just work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ho5Yxe6UVv4 http://www.juliandibbell.com/texts/goldfarmers.html

    Forced labor or a sweatshop type of life style? You judge. But it's nothing new for them.

    This thread should be closed. It is political and has the potential to become hateful. I myself am feeling nauseated by some of the responses here.

    Please close this thread.

    Better than making ipods all day by hand which is what 450,000 people do at the foxconn plant.

    Why would anyone buy gold when you can buy platinum?

    The bigger story, to me, is what he was imprisoned for.

    Apparently most people here have no clue what the Chinese government is like. They think this guy is a criminal when he was a victim of a corrupt government that's been exploiting the populace for decades while not allowing access to free speech and global news. Cool!

    This story isn't shocking in the least to me. They'll do anything to keep their economy going, and gaming is a huge industry. They literally have so many prisoners they have invented mobile execution buses that drive from prison to prison, sounds like a great labor source to me. He did it at

    Here's a question, would this article make you think twice before harassing/interfering with a gold farmer? My smart *** running around tagging his bot's mobs could, according to this, get a guy on the other side of the world beaten.

    (PS. Farmers still break the economy, like the guy doing it or not...)

    Very interesting. Before I moved to the United States, I spent the first 24 years of my life living in the Pudong district of Shanghai. What part of China are you from?

    This was also designed as a labor camp, that was the entire intent of anyone who went there. And they stayed in dorms, not even cells.
    Listen to fellow capitalist pig! This man was dangerous terrorist who said many false things about Glorious People's Republic of China!

    Thankfully I'm not from China. This means news and information isn't censored.
    Isn't Pudong one of the richest parts of China? Congrats on moving to the States, something most of the people from your country could never dream of doing.

    Sorry, not that big of a sob story to me.
    Heh, just what I was thinking. "YOU! yeah you! Stop digging that ditch in 95 degree weather and come inside and play this videogame for me!"
