Online Riots

I have a fuzzy place in my heart for riots in Massively Multiplayer Online games.  Basically, when players don't like something about the game, they can coordinate on the internet and stage a “protest” within the game.  In this case, hundreds of players got together and blocked access to a bridge.  You have to check out the picture to see what I'm talking about.  Anyway, several players where banned for “disturbing the peace”.  Mark my words – this sort of thing is a beginning of something new – it's only starting in the video game world (which is in many ways always ahead of the curve IMHO).
