*Warning: tongue in cheek comment*I am so going over there to gold farm and make like a million Yuan...Bloody European gold farmers ruining Chinese WoW economy.

Unfortunately, gold farming is one of the few ways many people of poorer nations can make a living. I realize what a pain they are, but their circumstances make their actions understandable. Actually, at this point, I'd think that gold farming is more profitable than real farming at this point.

Redundancy department of redundancy speaking. Lol fail at the repetition. And @Jamie, I understand the joke, I didn't mean to direct my previous comment at you.

@disdrgfreak - well, it's not like somebody held them at gunpoint forcing them to have more children than they can support. Your pleas for compassion are somewhat mis-targetted, I'm afraid.

Endless, three words: One. Child. Policy. There are very few families left in China that won't comply. It means tax cuts and lower living expenses. It's disheartening to see people who still think that Chinese families have gazillions of kids who are there to work on a farm or be sent to do child labor. Please do show proof that too many children is an issue for families with low incomes.

Jamie - I lol'edOther dude - Your love letter to the oppressed masses misses one major point. Many gold farming endeavors hack and steal accounts, pillage them for every copper they can get, and leave the legitimate player who has spent sometimes years having to deal with their mess. Yes, there are some genuine WoW "factories" with shifts of players just grinding for gold and mats and selling them, and yes, in some places that's an honest day's work. But I hope you're not trying to legitimize hackers and scammers just because their lives suck. Remember that when your car or home gets broken into because someone thought they deserved the things you worked for more than you did.
