Right on! Without fear of punishment its not much of a challenge and
only weasels and bullies enjoy it. As another poster said this is
humanity, this is drama. The only thing I didn't like was that it
was out of character. It would be interesting if the whole vitual
goods to real world goods could be a closer part of a virtual
world. But you'd need a world where your real life has some story
reasoning. Are there any MUDs that acknowledge the fact that you are
part of a virtual world within its world design?
