I am predicting that this will have little to no effect on the gold farming industry. Gold farming is hugely profitable in China (and possibly other places) at the moment, so they will most definitely find other ways. For example, instead of 1 man monitoring a few botted accounts at once, they could just switch software and turn him in to a multiboxer. The macros and setup would be a little complicated, since using multiboxing for farming is a lot different than using it to PvP. I realize that this is probably not the method they would use, I am only using it as an example. Now that I think about it, it would be even easier if they just hired the programmers that wrote Glider to work for them. According to articles on both BBC and Wired, gold farming in China is a multi-billion dollar industry. The stakes have risen far too high for them to just quit, no matter how much we (well, most of us...) would like them to disappear.
