I'm failing to see your point here.Making everything available to everyone, in-game, isn't really necessary. For one thing, even if it's not "fair"... well life ain't fair. The folks who ask for it to be the case typically want the store items to be as easily obtained in-game as they are by purchasing them in the store. The most direct comparison, to using RL money, is to buy those items with gold.There's problem here though, how much gold = $25 for a given item? Once you figure that out, you effectively, and legitimately, put a dollar amount on gold for the whole game. That's exactly what gold sellers do, value in-game currency in real world dollars. So, once you offer the same item in your store, for dollars, and in your game, for gold, you effectively legitimize gold selling. It would only serve to exacerbate the gold selling issue.The article only states that it's problematic, and related to gold selling, to offer real money items for in-game gold. The hyperbole here is entirely on your end, since it is you who made the "Chinese labour camp" leap.
