    Default Prisoners forced to gold farm

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011...et-gaming-scam

    What is unreal is how the person was complaining to the government about the very thing the guards end up forcing him to do, every day, for years.

    This actually inspires me to buy play using real money, and I used to hate the idea.

    What's amazing is that I do this out of my own Free Will! Just grinded out to Rank 6.

    Now the Grind to get Order of Mathos rep.

    Makes you wonder sometime about how you're just wasting life away...like right now reading this board

    Do you think this is the worst news from the Chinese gold selling syndicate? LOL I'll let you find out, here is what you do:

    1. Learn Chinese.
    2. Seek out the gold farmers, trust me they'll find you.
    3. Tell them you may buy some gold but you want to talk with them and be friends first.
    4. Ask them about their life, be real inquisitive.
    5. Don't buy the gold.

    You are going to see a world of human rights violations that is going to bug you forever.

    This is a great advertising niche for WoW.

    Alternatively, just read the news. China is renown for hysterically piss-poor human rights.

    The root of the problem is the corruption in their country. Buying or not buying plat isn't going to change that. For people in China that gold farm it's either do that or something worse.

    I'm not going to down play how terrible working in a labor camp would be, but I would suspect the majority of gold farmers are working in an air conditioned internet cafe. I look outside my apartment in Beijing to see a 24/7 internet cafe with people packed in there at all hours of the night.

    It normally costs 30-45 cents an hour to use some decent computers with servers coming around every 15 minutes selling snacks. This offers a great opportunity to those that may only make $1.50 an hour in Beijing or even better for those in the countryside.
