I don't even wanna think what a person willing to buy a baby girl for $500 would do with her >_<

 

My mum was right my imagination is a curse :S

 

Had no idea people could stoop as low as these parents, takes alot to disgust me but this has well and truly done that.

Probably easier than gold farming I suppose...

 

Seriously though, do you really need *that* much money to game? Is the culture/home connections such that you have to game from inet cafes? Also, it doesn't even say what they were playing.

 

Speaking of which, do you think that the official marketplace in Diablo 3 will encourage more gold farmesque activities, or make it more open and transparent?

I imagine the baby was bought by an infertile couple who's lives were being destroyed by inability to parent and pass on their love. The purchasers paid $500 to the birth parents and are raising the child in a loving environment, continually reminding themselves how blessed they are with this gift.

 

The world doesn't completely suck :)

Carla: This really sucks. I've been trying to get pregnant for two months now.

 

J.D.: I almost bought a baby yesterday.

 

Carla: What?

 

J.D.'s Thoughts: Don't tell them, in case you want it later!

 

J.D.: Nothing.

Any karma directed at me should be overwhelmingly positive just for being mates with you! :-p

Heh... I probably chose the avatar on another day like today.

Eye baby, the other other white meat, /drools. For $500 I would buy that and find my favourite recipe right here. :D

This is downright disgusting to have children and sell them for funding online gaming. I believe the Chinese Authorities will probably have these 2 people executed for human slavery.

In traditional Chinese society, having a boy is valued over having a girl. Problem is also partly cultural.

Female infanticide is known problem in China.

Selling a child to fund their gaming habits. Disgusting!

 

Unfortunately, the selling of children, especially males is a big thing in china. I know first hand as my wifes sister was sold off many years ago for about 5000rmb as her mum kept on having females rather than males..

 

Also, the abduction of male babies is still very big in china.

$500 eh?

hmmmmm.

that's a pretty good deal

:o

Sure...until you remember you gotta feed and clothe, educate and entertain :P

 

Though in this case you'd train it to farm gold in wow and that would offset all those costs, so perhaps it makes smart business sense? Still feels wrong to me unless it's done with good intentions.

J.D.: Nothing.

My first thought too :D

Sadly - not a rarity in some Asian countries.

They have been wildly successful in deregulating their sanctity of human life index and opening up the full maternal GDP to the free market. Them Asians.

 

Or maybe it's just that whole crypto-fascist unitary government centralizing the state, military, and media thing.
