d2 vigilantism vs real life vigilantism

Obviously society doesn't like it when individuals take the law into their own hands, but in d2, it's perfectly ok(especially morally). For example, pking bot/hack users are perfectly fine because there is no force policing bnet, therefore we as individuals must police ourselves. Your thoughts?

However, I think my thesis could easily be destroyed and this thread be nulled by saying, d2 is just a game, who cares, while RL is different.

botting.. etc is less vigilantism and more pure cheating.
and there is no possible method of policing that will not too heavy disrupt player base... already failing as it is due to WOW.

We wouldn't need to police ourselves if Blizzard would do something about all the bots/hacks/spammers.

it seems like back in the old days bounty hunters used to hunt down doers of wrong on bnet. they would bring you back the ear of your assailant, for what ever price you agreed upon. but alas, gone are those days now that everyone is in "a game (private)".

He means pking the characters that are being run by a bot/hack.

you dont know what vigilantism means do you :uhhuh:

Since blizz refuse to do anything about it i think anyone who gets a chance to kill a bot should do it. Going out of your way to do it all the time seems like a waste of time though since all you can take is gold. Unless you enjoy it, in which case go for it :thumbsup: .
