I think your issue is that you like to put a lot of game time into earning things for your avatar, whatever game you happen to be playing, and that the fact is that there are other people out there that think to themselves, "Gee, I sure don't have a lot of time and/or patience to earn level (fill in the blank) and I'd really like to start having some MMO fun. But luckily there's this nifty little cash shop that sells EXP gain potions and items that ensure my gear wont explode from trying to enchant it . Also I want cat ears." So, you notice this and because you feel a sense of accomplishment for earning your items through the tried and true method of grinding ad nauseum, you go off on a tanget like an old man yelling about 'work ethic'.
The Fact Of The Matter is this: When you play a subscription game, you're paying for content you have to work to earn. When you use a RMT service provided by the company, you're getting what you pay for right away instead of having to grind like a mother in order to earn it. You end up spending roughly the same amount of money either way, and I'm not sure why you dislike people because your sense of fun is different than others.
You obviously can not understand my point so I will not explain it further. If you do not get it by now, continue to "play" your game with your credit card. I find it illogical to play a GAME that I do not have time for nor enjoy so I pay for items instead of playing it myself. That is the silliest thing I have ever heard. If I felt I didn't have enough time to play a game I would quit, it's very simple. I would go to something I had time to you know actually PLAY considering that is why you buy games.
Edit: So your logic is, with a subscription based MMO GAME you PLAY to get items. If that said game has virtual items for cash then you get to bypass PLAYING the GAME by pulling out your credit card and obtaining the items. Just wow .... you may want to take a step back and read what you wrote. You do realize these are games right and in games that is what you do is play them?
Why even play if you don't want to? I should created an MMO where you sit in town and put in your credit card information to get items and then you stand there and stare at it. Games are meant to be played, if the game play isn't fun then quit. Some people need to take a step back and realize what games are.
