The Sims Mafia

Dowbrigade writes about a REALLY interesting thing that's turned up in the SIMS ONLINE world.

He runs a band of thugs who'll gladly deal out ugly punishments for the right price. Chase, a 26-year-old resident of Sacramento, runs the Sim Mafia (, a gang of digital enforcers for a digital world. They lay down the law inside the Sims Online, a multiplayer computer game run by Electronic Arts. "Our job is to basically take those complaints from the normal citizens of the game, who can't go to EA because EA won't do anything about it, and do an eye-for-an-eye for them," Chase said.

So I can get paid virtual money for breaking virtual legs. I probably can
get virtually arrested by virtual cops and tossed in a virtual slammer. As
a virtual hoodlum, I don't see any advantage to this as all I'm going to get
is virtual nookie.
