GAMING'S PROHIBITIVELY HIGH EXCHANGE RATES


Blizzard Entertainment, the publisher and developer of the hit massively multiplayer "World of Warcraft," has permanently suspended more than one thousand "gold farming" users from the game. Blizzard claims that gold farming, whereby a user sells her online character's "gold" to another user in exchange for real world "dollars", damages World of Warcraft's in-game economy.

Apparently, Blizzard hopes its users will find gold through actually playing its game, rather than paying someone else to play it for them.
