Cruel and Unusual Punishment

MMORPG reintroduces crucifixion.

I wittily suggested that if online personae do exist, and have human rights (as my PhD student is currently trying to claim) then they could certainly claim this was torture and so illegal under the ECHR. A passing computer gamer however noted "And so is getting shot in the face."

Point taken. There are some places law should not go :-)
