It's Not Supposed To Be Funny...

Most of you have probably heard of Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Games (MMORPG) like Everquest, Ultima Online, or others.

Well, it seems that one of these MMORPG's, Shadowbane was cracked by some players who turned it into a massive bloodfest.

Now, breaking into systems is against the law, and people put lots of time into these types of games. But I found myself laughing out loud as I read what the people who broke into the games' code did. It was interesting to read that some players in the game also found it funny, but I'm sure there were those (who live their lives in games like this) that were mortified.
