An interesting article I came accross.

Quote :
Prison bosses made more money forcing inmates to play games than they do forcing people to do manual labour," Liu told the Guardian. "There were 300 prisoners forced to play games. We worked 12-hour shifts in the camp. I heard them say they could earn 5,000-6,000rmb [£470-570] a day. We didn't see any of the money. The computers were never turned off.

Quote :
"If I couldn't complete my work quota, they would punish me physically. They would make me stand with my hands raised in the air and after I returned to my dormitory they would beat me with plastic pipes. We kept playing until we could barely see things," he said.

My thoughts exactly Cass... lol... Only solidifies what your parents tell you about online games/chat rooms, be careful who you trust. Geez...

On another note I don't really see grinding for gold in an online game as a worse punishment to starring at a brick wall then again the punishment for non-achievers would be painful so I guess they better hope they are good at online games :S!
