He really doesn't seem all that concerned about having accounts banned or items/currency stripped from accounts. I guess that when the labor is cheap enough and the cash coming in is sufficient then it really doesn't matter except for the purchaser who might have to wait an extra week or two.

WoW has done an amazing job combating farmers, but it's still disconcerting to read that the pros really don't care about getting banned. In Lineage2 farmers walk around with impunity so I expect that attitude there. In WoW though? Weird.

It will be interesting to see how the next generation of MMO's either combat or embrace RMT.

Getting banned is a necessary cost of doing business for farmers... though one would think it's a much bigger issue for power-levelers, since that's your customers' account that just got banned. The fact that he can refer to it as a risk management issue when some of his customers now have NO characters instead of the level 70 characters they paid him to level for them for only serves to underscore how shady the RMT business is at the moment.

P.S. Dear GameSetWatch, way to run an un-paid advertisement for this dude's RMT site. You could have at least scrubbed the URL.
