shaming cheaters in video game
Public shaming on the internet is not a new thing, but shaming a cheater in a video game? The game Guild Wars 2 took an account ban to a whole new level when they banned one of its players found to be hacking the game by stripping the in game character naked and then jumping it off a tall ledge to it's death. The developers then banned that character, and all other activity associated with the account holder. The internet's reaction is varied ranging from praise for the ban to criticism for the public shaming. One thing holds true... the internet is a weird, weird place.
