johnson442: hardinparamedic: Holy shiat.

People STILL play Runescape?

/Recovering WOW addict.

Think of Runescape as the poor mans WoW.
With better documentation.
and more player help available on der web.

Okay, WoW has far better graphics....but still, I was tearing my hair out trying to find ANY kind of help file or hints on exactly HOW TO DO THIS!!!



Saying RuneScape is poor man's WOW is like saying dog food is a poor man's steak.

If someone is willing to actually give you cash for it, then , it has value.


Financial Crimes Enforcement Network ("FinCEN"), our wonderful Gov't at work, has now stated unequivocally if you can sell a virtual currency for real currency, IT HAS VALUE and any business involved in the buying and selling has to comply with anti-fraud/money laundering regs.

Sybarite: Belmont, of Swansea, admitted an offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 of gaining unauthorised access to a computer and making unauthorised modifications to computer material.

That seems like a reasonable charge.


Yeah, if they are really "friends" it is stupid it got as far as the police/court, but there is no "friends can't commit crimes against friends" clause in criminal law, so the police/courts are just doing their jobs and prosecuting theft as they should. Pretending virtual currencies don't have value would be the same as ignoring crimes because the thing stolen was bitcoins, or gold ETFs, or rare stamps, or baseball cards just because some people think it is silly to consider those things to be "valuable".
