Even a moderator ended up arriving in and locking the thread, saying that the community's activities depicted them as racist and heartless. The principal difficulty being, that simply targeting OSRS gold a Venezuelan player doesn't mean you're targeting a gold farmer.

According to Polygon, Venezuelans make roughly $2 through $3 a day farming and selling gold at Runescape. It's not a whole lot but it helps them make more than that which they're currently making functioning as a fulltime professional on account of the collapse of the market. Reports from the New York Times indicates that minimum wage means that individuals are just making $5 a month.

Regardless of the action of killing and targeting Venezuelan players appearing harsh, the truth is that many players claim to be doing it to maintain Jagex's terms and requirements when it comes to buy Runescape gold selling gold for real money.

Most publishers have rules against that type of behavior, and it also measures into some very murky legal territory in regards to government regulation.
