Can you find out how to say in Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese): "Please don't hack my account and steal all my gold?"I'm sure its also useful to learn in other languages, but Chinese seems to be the more pertinent.

your either ignorant or just racist, everybody knows that account hackers in the US are not Chinese, it could be the guy that lives across the street from you, they don't even farm boars for endless hours, they get your account and steal all your gold so they can use it to sell to other people and therefore do it to the next person.

@ Zalvi,While I am one of the first people to jump up when Chinese are unfairly slandered, (I loved my time in Beijing) the charming folks who run the gold selling website named after a "fast woman" (hint hint) are Beijing Shenhua Innovative Techonologies, headquartered at Zhi Chun Road #48, , Ying Du Building C, Unit 4-9A, Chaoyang District, Bejing 10038, China. (At least according to the Better Business Bureau.)

@Zalvi24:The term you're looking for is "Xenophobe", not racist.Anyway, I think he just made that comment "for da lulz", I don't find it offensive at all. (Then again, I'm not chinese).

Depends. I'm Singaporean Chinese, but we do not associate ourselves with mainland Chinese, so we get the jokes since we have our own for mainland Chinese folks. Though generally, South East Asian Chinese can converse in English, so having to speak in Mandarin wouldn't even be an issue. We may however, spout insults in various hokkien, cantonese, malay, tamil, or otherwise. Multi-cultural society = multiple ways to insult people ;p (juvenile as it is, first thing you learn in another language is usually a curse word lol)

I've interacted only one goldseller / goldfarmer thus far, but he WAS a Chinese. On the European realm, mind you! He started insulting me in Chinese when I tried to use Booty Bay AH while he was moving stuff from Horde to Alliance. So, I can safely say there is at least ONE Chinese gold farmer, thus there is no reason to believe there isn't many more of Chinese gold farmers. Certainly the one I've met wasn't an isolated case.So, please, let's cut those "racist" and "xenophobe" labels. I realize they are convenient to use and they make you look cool among your tribal brothers, human rights activists, multiculturalists and other xenophiles, but well, calling someone a racist is no better than calling someone a chinese gold farmer. It's just that: a label.

The amount of "Chinese" or non-engrish speaking people I've played and dealt with in the past is appalling. Now, by appalling, i mean its horrible to see a level 80 getting nude, then running to a vendor and sitting there for a good moment and when you ask them whats going on, they either don't reply, or they say something along the lines of:"o h do n ot wor rry friend , i am si m ply ta k ing a vis it to a f rie nds pla yer! Th ank y ou for you re conse rn!"Seriously.Oh, and one time, i actually got a bunch of those "square" and sideways rectangles you see when your computer/client doesn't support the languages characters. That was fun.
