Why are there so many beggers?

I was bored so I looked through yahoo answers for anything runescape related. I had to go back 3 days to find anything that wasn't just someone begging for either an account or items. Have these people no pride? What is the point if all you do is accept handouts? I get a lot of people begging ingame as well. Some just run up to me while I'm working and try to trade me without even saying anything. Whats up with that? Its gotten rather annoying. What have your experiences been like? How do you feel about them?

Simple, people are becoming to dang lazy to work hard for their money. It is very annoying to us that work hard. I usually just put them on ignore list if its in game.

Yea, I hate the chump traders that just walk up & try to trade you without saying anything. I always ask what kinda presents are they giving away.

It happens for every mmorpg. Some people forget that they are in the game to have fun, not to have 92734 items, eq and what potions. Most of the time, the joy is in having a bunch of crazy friends and running off to an insane raid. What of the things we used to do (in another game, not runescape) is to have a forum thread on beggers. Anyone reported as a begger stays on that list and is put on ignore by everyone in the server. Hope that helps :)

Blacklist the top 10 worst of the lot and take them down one by one. If most of the players in game agree to ignore them, they will be forced to change ot move servers

There should be a begging bomb that you can give to someone for free which starts the timer. It'd look like something normal till it blew up and killed them. That would be amusing.

I can't get through an hour, without someone coming up to me and begging. So, I spend most of my time cutting magics in elfland. They can't get to elfland, and I can work on my woodcutting. When someone does beg me, I tell them to stop begging, because they remind me of a dog. It usually works, but then I feel bad, so I give into some of them and help them out a little. The ones that I do help out are very grateful, indeed.

I hate beggers too. And I hate full servers and lags. Well, it happens all the time if you play role playing games online.

Beggers will never be stopped. In every MMORPG there is sure to beggers. Until a game makes it against the rules to beg they will always exist. What we can do to stop is to tell everyone to not give anything to beggers. Drop parties are different but why not just sell the stuff to the general store if you dont need it?We can also just ignore beggers altogether. If beggers can't be heard then they wll probably stop begging. In the end beggers will always taint MMORPG's with there begging and we cant really stop them unless we work together to ignore them.
