Virtial terrorists in Second Life have bombed a virtual American Apparel outlet and Reebok store. The terrorist plot was carried out by a group of orgranized Second Lifers who believe, "The population of the world should have a say in the running of the world."

The terrorist group is called the Second Life Liberation Army.

Implications - As virtual worlds become more widely adopted in mainstream culture, these online arenas are experiencing many of the same cultural shifts we see in real life. Romances, arguments and even terrorist actions are increasingly taking place within online communities as users struggle to have their voice heard against the clamor of millions of other fellow users.
