How about you hang out with us as we discuss some of the more esoteric aspects of the games we love to play?

Just look at how much Blizzard had to change Wrath of the Lich King for a Chinese release! The Lawbringer aims to give you a look into the pop topics that relate to the games we love and play every day, with some practical advice to help you avoid some of the more nefarious and potentially surprising issues that crop up alongside virtual worlds.
This week, The Lawbringer gives you some basic tips on dealing with internet harassment, in game and out.

Hopefully, with a little knowledge on your side collected from people who have already had to walk this rough path, you can successfully fight back.
