"The Escapist #19: Griefer Generation" Now Available

Issue 19, Griefer Generation, focuses on those gamers (and non-gamers) who like to make other people's lives miserable for their own amusement. David Thomas biographizes FL attorney Jack Thompson and explaines the meaning behind the term griefing in "You Don't Know Jack;" Mark Wallace chronicles the GriefSpawn that brought down Second Life on October 23 and examines virtual worlds as microcoms for RL, Greg Tito tries to understand the corpse-camping in WoW that combines cyber-bullying with hazing in "Dood, It's Part of the Game;" in "A Deadly Dollar," Jim Rossingol peeks at EVE Online's gaming griefers, scams and brutal strikes, and Laura Nenender shares an example of griefing for a higher purpose in "Griefing for the Greater Good."
