Infraction: Being an idiot
Message to User:
Not only did you just agree with a troll who got banned for a week, you amended his post by adding your own worthless diatribe. In the future, use the report function and let us decide the value of a thread.
I'm not really sure what we're trying to accomplish in this thread. Nobody is reading this thread and thinking "Gee whiz, maybe I shouldn't buy all that gold after all!" after they've been buying gold for a while.
This thread exists so that people like the poster quoted below can show off their "gaming correctness" by invoking their self righteous nerd rage. Basically it is of the same quality like the "Threatmeter kills gaming skills" threat we had a few weeks ago, but more unpleasant.
It's because people are so cocky. They're proud they've bought gold because it makes them feel like part of the Naxfarming pals where you need pots every raid to survive.
I can see why someone would want to. I mean, economically it's worth it if you have a job, but most of the people I know who have bought gold are ignorant selfish retards who can't see far enough to realize that gold buying fucks up WoW economy and indirectly supports hacking.
Besides that, there is no value for this thread: most posters obviously don't even whish to discuss the underlying economic priniciples of RMT and it's effects on the server economy or game design. Their argumantation exhausts itself in questionable (to put it kindly) analogies with chrome plating, fur coats and bribery of ice skating judges. Personally it makes me wonder what people have learned at their oh so renowned colleges they tout to have attended.
