Submission + - Neal Stephenson: Video Games Are The Metaverse (forbes.com)

It's all about the rules of the game. If the rules say you can pay cash to get virtual stuff, fine. If you don't like it, leave the game (as I did, EQ2). if the Code of Conduct says buying gold is cheating (which it does for WoW), then its cheating.

This guy thought he was special...that the rules did not apply to him...
