[size=9pt]Online divorcee jailed after killing virtual hubby<br />Oct 23, 2008<br /><br /><br />TOKYO: A 43-year-old Japanese woman whose sudden divorce in a virtual game world made her so angry that she killed her online husband's digital persona has been arrested on suspicion of hacking, police said Thursday.<br /><br />The woman, who is jailed on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data, used his identification and password to log onto popular interactive game "Maple Story" to carry out the virtual murder in mid-May, a police official in northern Sapporo said on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.<br /><br />"I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry," the official quoted her as telling investigators and admitting the allegations.<br /><br />The woman had not plotted any revenge in the real world, the official said.<br /><br />She has not yet been formally charged, but if convicted could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.<br /><br />Players in "Maple Story" raise and manipulate digital images called "avatars" that represent themselves, while engaging in relationships, social activities and fighting against monsters and other obstacles.<br /><br />The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married, and killed the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his beloved online avatar was dead. [/size]

    <br /><br />O prob é que quem escreveu aquele artigo deu muito mais ênfase ao "assassínio virtual" do que propriamente ao verdadeiro crime que foi aceder ilegalmente ah conta do gajo e deletar. A gaja ficou lixada e apagou-lhe a conta. Big deal. E bastava dizer isso. Depois ainda pode apanhar 5 anos por isso? O Bibi apanhava menos. E ainda acrescentam:<br /><br />"The woman had not plotted any revenge in the real world, the official said."<br /><br />Cuidado, fujam desta mulher!<br /><br />*sigh*<br />
  • Killer: Online Gaming Made Me Crazy<br /><br />Just as China declares internet addiction a "mental disorder," 22 year-old Hu Ange from Sichuan Province is now trying to claim insanity after being sentenced to death for poisoning his parents and spending their money on online games. Back in March 2007, Hu's parents gave him 50,000 yuan (US$7,353) to support his seafood business — he spent all the money on online game Legend. Flash forward to July 14, 2007 when he purchased 20 packs of tetramine and poisoned his father the following morning. His father was saved thanks to emergency treatment. Days later on July 20, he bought 45 more packs of tetramine and served them with mixed beef on July 24, poisoning both his parents at lunch. Hu did not respond to his dying mother's pleas for help, because he was in his room playing Legend. If poisoning one's parents on multiple occasions wasn't nutty enough, this wacko's gotta drag gaming into it.
