MMORPG Sweatshops

Cutting across several topics I'm currently interested in, this article about sweatshop workers employed to farm gold in MMORPGs is making me boggle. There's something very cyberpunkish about people being paid buttons to sit by a machine and pretend not to be robots - quite apart from the basic illegality of the industry.
