What?! You can't create a 'virtual likeness' with your computer and throw darts at them? Or is this still acceptable?

hope they didn't have any virtual children!
seriously: was she hacking into his computer? if the "ex-husband" gave his login information voluntarily, surely it wasn't a crime to use it?

I've got some Goblin Ambushers to prosecute, like, hardcore.

Definitely bizarre when real world police jail someone for a crime committed in a *game*. I'm afraid to play World of Warcraft now....

Did you here about the one where the guy stabbed and killed a guy over giving away a virtual sword? Happened in China, search "Qiu Chengwei" on the Googles.

They arrested her for hacking... not murder.
