They may go back seven years worth of your transactions and all my good friends out there might owe the USA some back-taxes.

:D

It's ok. All the money is going to a good cause. You trust the US government.. Right?


I don't understand them taxing transactions in World of Warcraft? o_O The only actual money transactions that take place are between the subscriber and the company, and I thought those were already taxed. Any real money transactions outside of that are illegal per the TOS and Blizzard will ban you if they catch you (and they DO catch people).

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

Dani...

This has nothing to do with the Lindens. This is the IRS pushing this. Linden Labs and their enterprise is their current target to extract money.

This is your Government. Embrace it with a big smile and expect all things good from them. ;)

Leah,
You know as well as anyone that you can make a living actually farming virtual goods in WoW. It's ok... They are only taking one bowl of rice away out of the week's pay from Chen Chun to help pay for someone's phone in the United States, It's fair taxation and stuff.. Glaucon is cool with it. So it's fine. :wave:

No, you really can't. The people who are doing the gold selling aren't gold farmers anymore. They compromise accounts and take other people's in-game gold and goods. They don't farm them up themselves.

Now all we need to do is get Bit coin credit cards... we can build our virtual goods... sell them in our virtual SL world...

Then!!!

We can go down to the corner... get an ounce of our new legalized weed and hit up that chick on the corner for a RL BJ who takes Bitcoin too...

Oor Have I ever told you how much I appreciate you? ... and your ass.. I appreciate your ass !
