Second Life (and for that matter online troll/griefer culture in general) reminds me strongly of the movie Paint Your Wagon. It's a long but good movie, well worth a Netflix rental; the upshot is that the principals build a town "just the way they want" in the untamed goldrush West, with casinos and saloons and whorehouses and not a care in the world. But the they
discover that a fortune in gold dust is literally falling through the cracks in the floorboards of those places, so they excavate to get it. Their efforts cause the town to collapse -- except for the new church and courthouse, built by the farmers where the fortune seekers couldn't be bothered to notice.
GRIEFING IS NOT MOCKING PEOPLE. MOCKERY IS NOT GRIEFING.
