forced to play wow for 12 hours after a day of breaking rocks. sounds like it would take the fun out of it..

I didn't think you could transfer gold from chinese servers to US servers though - have they got the whole 'demand from the western market' thing wrong? maybe the prisoners play on US servers, in which case I want to know who they get a decent connection!

-1 to this thread title. It's not China who does it, but some stupid corrupted prison employees. We don't need more hatred Wink

But an interesting story indeed, another good reason to never buy gold online.

@nirius : they don't transfer gold, they just open US accounts and for farming 500-700 lag doesn't matter.

While that is considered an Unusual punishment.........I can't exactly deem it cruel.
