I am OK with friends using my miles, but has anyone done this?
I bet they will offer you like $20 for 50k miles.. Also it is not illegal to sell miles but airlines put clause in their FF rules that you must not sell miles. So if they do find out about you selling miles they might close your account along with all miles that were there

Using a ticket for transportation in violation of its terms and conditions is an offense in (I believe) several places, including (at least) California. I don't know if this statute has ever been used to prosecute someone who bought a ticket for miles, but I think it could be.
I have bought (not sold) miles for a ticket. It is (generally) not illegal, but against FF program policies/rules. YMMV, but they do not police this very toughly.
IMHO, nope. I know several folks who have been denied boarding because of airline suspicions that they were using purchased miles redemption tickets. And there are reports on FT about accounts being closed and all miles lost.
Probably no fun to be denied boarding when you want to come home from Hong Kong. And, too late to buy a discount ticket.
Programs: AA, Delta, UA & thanks to FTers for my PC Gold!

I'd provided you the links to some existing threads on this topic. There are more threads on this if you want to perform your own search, but the answer remains the same.
The discussion is current since the policy about selling miles for most, if not all, frequent flyer programs has NOT changed. It's against the programs' rules to sell miles. Period. In terms of the topic of your interest, this old thread is still current:
You may not be aware of our TOS w/r/t cross-posting on FT. That's why I also provided the link to FT TOS in your first thread. But you kept doing the same thing after 2 FTers had pointed out to you not to cross-post. That's not cool. Please respect our TOS, because (from FT guidelines):
Our members read many forums, and weeding through the same message in multiple forums can be frustrating....
I'll close my comment with our forum mod's note from another similar threads:

Without understanding and/or reading through the existing discussion threads, you seem determined to sell your miles and points anyway. FWIW, good luck!
