World of Warcraft 'funeral' ambush

Where to file this one? Under "sad" or "funny"? It's a video of the World of Warcraft online "funeral" ceremony for a girl who died in real life. The virtual attendees were set upon by other players... I was going to ignore it but people are really getting worked up about the whole thing. Even The Guardian takes -10 silliness damage by launching into a long shpiel about the evolution of games into virtual societies and "griefers" forgetting that people have been getting emo like this well before the Internet. Ho-humm.
