Second Life Terrorism, or PR Stunt

Second LifeMetro.co.uk is reporting that virtual world Second Life has experienced its first terrorist attack. It maintains that the Second Life Liberation Army, a home-grown terrorist cell of SL users has staged an online attack and is calling for democratic decision-making in the virtual community. Apparently the group "bombed" an American Apparel outlet and a Reebok store.

However, blog Vi-r-us asserts that it's just a desperate PR stunt to stem the "outflowing tide of interest" in the community.
