Outsource Game Playing?

As if outsourcing jobs to India (or out of the U.S.) didn’t cause concern for people, online players are outsourcing playing games. The basic idea is this – let someone in China play your games on the easy stuff, then take over from there. Another idea – the kids in China find stuff in games, then sell the “property” online. Of course, it’s against the terms of service in games to do that, but it happens anyway.

How lazy can someone be to pay someone to play their game, instead of actually playing the game themselves? It’s the same thing as cheating, as far as I’m concerned. Is there any sense of accomplishment left after that?
