Gold farming was a big part of World of Warcraft, or really any online game that utilizes an in game currency. I’ve been aware of some of the poor conditions gold farmers worked under, but I always imagined it mostly as volunteer work for “some” pay. This article just kind of struck me because I never even thought of the possibility that Chinese prisoners were part of that gold farming crew. I just was picturing in my head like a 12 year old kid playing on his Warlock trying to level up, and all around him are Chinese inmates being forced to farm for gold by their wardens. It’s an interesting scenario.
