It is kinda impressive and frightening what's going on in the world of spam, gold farming and credit card fraud and theft.
And like with everything else, the only way that this is actually worthwhile is because people buy gold/credits/accounts/powerleveling and so forth.

I'm not sure, even with restrictions, that Cryptic could stop the gold farmers/spammers... without hindering their customers...

Blizzard have tried for years to reduce the spam, stop the farmers and so on, and yet, they still have spamming bots all over the main cities...

How to fix it? Come up with a great idea, to stop them, and you'll have revelutionised the market!
