Corpse Graffiti

According to Clickable Culture, people are dropping “dead” avatars in online worlds like Warcrack:

I regularly spotted a corpse named Jeff Buckley floating face-down in a pool of water… Corpse graffiti, a form of emergence, is created by building a character with a clever name… and dropping dead in a contextually-appropriate location… The primary use seems to be humour, but some players have used corpse graffiti to criticize the game design of World of Warcraft.
