    I cannot believe I have to explain this to you.

    Q) You said, "Farming is now illegal?"
    A) No, it's not. Did you even read the article? Theft of in-game items outside of normal game usage is illegal. i.e., hacking, physical threats, etc, etc. Has nothing to do with farming and that should be obvious.

    Q) "took the crops from other runescape players as they were farming"
    A) Cool story bro. Has nothing to do with anything though.

    I wouldn't even say anything but this has to be the fifth time this has happened. How can you be so consistently bad at English? Are you one of those French Canadians?



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    The article is on runescape therefore my previous statement is valid. BTW Farming is in-game stealing.

    Taken from Wiki on 'Farming / Grinding':

    repetition undertaken in order to obtain items, relating the activity to tending a farm field
    Farming is, say, spanking Mephisto 3,823,987,834 times a day to get items.

    And therefore its stealing:

    Steal, the illegal taking of another person's property without that person's freely-given consent

    So, by your logic, you're stealing from the government by harvesting crops?

    Mephisto is not a real person, therefore, not protected by the law. Farming is simply grinding to get items, similiar to doing it for levels. It has nothing to do with stealing, especially in the legal sense which has to involve something outside of the game (hacking, physical threats, etc).

    For fuck sake man, just admit you were wrong. You're just making a COMPLETE ass of yourself right now. And, whenever I prove you wrong, the conversation just goes on and on because you won't admit it and you throw every kind of excuse everywhere to try to save face.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.

    You're saying that grinding for items if a crime and the server has the right to prosecute you. Therefore, you are saying that by farming you are committing a crime against the government.

    In other easy to understand, obvious news, B comes after A and before C.

    I still don't see how farming is stealing. Isn't it part of the game?
