As you may or may not realize, getting into Ahn'Qiraj requires not only a massive farming effort, but also a long, tedious quest chain.  The quest starts with a faction grind - requiring the quester to collect 42,000 silithid carapace fragments to reach neutral with the Brood of Nozdormu.  (Yes, you did read that correctly - 42,000.  Each silithid kill will net 1-4 carapace fragments, so you may use your imagination to guess how long it might take to collect enough.)  The quest continues after this for many, many steps, several of them requiring a raid group to complete.  The final reward for this quest is the Scepter of the Shifting Sands - which must be used to open the gates after the war turn-ins are completed.  However, a guild on Detheroc server that has completed the quest chain has decided to hold the server's access to Ahn'Qiraj hostage, saying they will only open the gates once they receive 5,000 gold  from the server.  While the quest chain is long, difficult, and costly, it's also very rewarding - granting the quester several very nice epic items along the way.  Is a guild completing the Ahn'Qiraj quest chain justified in making such demands for their hard work?

Update: This has been officially declared a joke
