Prejudice or Lack of Communication?

Posted Fri, Jan 20, 2006 by Awenyddion

Awen (that would be me) writes about the newly made accusations of prejudice against the Chinese in WoW.

Are all gold farmers Chinese? The answer to this question is absolutely not. However, the proof of Asian gold farmers is greater simply due to the fact that the Asian governments are cracking down on this market. Publicity causes awareness within the community. People who have had bad experiences because of these farmers begin to associate the Asian people with this trade. It's easier to point fingers at people who you have proof of doing the deed rather than an anonymous entity that exists right in your own back yard. Does this mean that all gamers have an instant dislike for the Asians or feel that they are all gold farmers? I think not.

Is it just me or could this all be a lack of communication? Read It Here
