What? You're a Chinese Inmate?

Any Chinese inmates playing your game?

Chinese prisoners forced to play World of Warcraft, make money for guards - Yahoo! News

If any of you are parents, next time you ground your children do NOT take away their video games! ;-)

Considering how lax WOW still is when it comes to the buying/selling of items between players, which is simular to Second Life, this is hardly surprising. Note: the exploitation of cheats and program flaws is what they're getting down on, especially in WOW.

What is surprising is that neither WOW or SL doesn't have a 'Tax' on such, which would go a long way towards upgrading their servers. (Lag and Drag are a common occurance in SL, especially at night--when I'm either trying to RP or Build).

But I do question the valitiy of the story. It sounds more like an Urban Myth than reality, or somebody with a grudge.

Well, it's against the rules on WoW so taxing it wouldn't work so well.

That doesn't stop the Farmers, until they're caught that is.

Taxing legimate builders on the other hand, would help support the system.

The problem is, how much to tax per builder to make it fair for all and not choke the cash cow off?
