Much like any business, the "workers" (the gold farmers themselves) are just doing a job to support themselves, for the most part. The "owners" (the people who run the gold selling operations) make a fair bit of money, market it using spam, and so on. And of course, the "consumers" (the people who buy gold) are the ones that make the whole thing work.So long as people want to buy gold, someone will find a way to sell it. What we see from a lot of these comments is how much easier it is to direct our anger over the consequences caused by it at the workers, rather then the actual cause of the problem. Ever wondered how your guildie got 5000g for an epic flying mount in two days, but didn't say anything? Flaming the gold farmers and accepting the gold buyers is part of the problem. Flame/ostracize the buyers and leave the farmers alone, and you'll get better results.(Its funny how much this mirrors real life. Who gets more public scorn from the public: prostitutes, or their customers?)
