Getting Gold Farmers out of WoW

I had an odd idea of how to get chinese gold farmers out of the north american edition of world of warcraft.

Code up some wiki-like software that works via the in game whisper or chat system and fill it with pro-democracy/anti-chinese state content. Then the chinese firewall will block them.

Whispering certain unapproved chinese terms to farmers who are spamming might also get them blocked by the chinese firewall, and probably be easier to do.

So does anyone know some forbidden words that could be easily kept at the ready?

But there are Chinese WoW servers that the Chinese people are supposed to be playing on. Its mostly the gold farmers who are playing the north american version for money, neither blizzard or the chinese party particularly want them on the NA servers.

That's true, but I wouldn't put it past them to use it as an opportunity for political gain.

Don't mind me, really, I'm just playing devil's advocate. c.c
