A Second Life Whodunit

A Second Life Whodunit:
The ABC boasted one of Second Life's most expansive commercially run islands, but that didn't stop an unidentified gang from laying waste to the digital plot of land.
Virtual vandalism is an interesting phenomenon, but it's completely unsurprising. Real people with real impulses lie behind online representations, and this just makes it even more clear that the divide isn't virtual/real but virtual/physical. It's even possible that a form of physicality is implied by acts like this, which means things are getting very interesting.
