I would like to rise a question on a point worth discussing.  Would
you stop doing in-game memorial because of hoaxes? Or would you
rather risk of being pointed at as someone who believed a false
story but give value to the happening, be it true or false?

I myself would probably do a memorial anyway since the ties and
friendship you build playing online is often as valuable as your
real life experience.
