Next time you or someone you know is mugged, and undergoes several surgeries for a stab wound, you are that mugger.
Next time you or someone you know has their identity stolen, and must spend the next 6-12 months clearing up problems, you are that thief.
Next time you or someone you know has their car broken into to have a couple CD's or sunglasses stolen, and has to fork out 20 times that amount in repairs because a low insurance deductible is too expensive, you are that thief.
You are that thief and mugger because you are directly pouring grief into other people by using underhanded methods to get rich quick.
You are enabling RMT. You are signing the paychecks of people hired to cheat at claiming NM's, monopolizing farming areas, monopolizing crafts, monopolizing and manipulating the auction house, raising prices, and straight up stealing, etc.
You are the one causing people to quit because the time sink in the game is multiple times what it should be.
You said you're 23 and a law student and I imagine this attitude and behavior is part of who you are in real life. Lawyer heh, it doesn't surprise me. Many lawyers are textbook narcissists. Here's to many years of leeching off everyone around you *cheers*
