Wired.com advice columnist suggests paying gold farming service instead of son

I'm just going to excerpt this crazy advice article.

I’m paying my tween son to farm gold for me in World of Warcraft. My wife is horrified; I equate it with paying him to mow the lawn. Am I a terrible dad?
Excerpt:
...While your kid will be better served by pulling weeds, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your dream of becoming a level-85 Night Elf. There are plenty of Chinese firms willing to fatten any WOW character’s coffers for a fee. Or perhaps you’d like to purchase Mr. Know-It-All’s account: Any interest in an orc shaman named after a Family Ties character? I’m looking to quit the game so I can spend more time with my son.

Oh great, so now Wired.com is recommending going to a Gold farmer service over paying one of your kids to farm gold. Just great. Next they'll be suggesting Blackwater to do some internet bullying.

The funny thing is that if you read the middle part of the advice it is pretty good, but the beginning and the end are amazingly awful.

Take it from Mr. Know-It-All.
