In China the favoured means of revenge is stabbing. And often over trivial things. I still remember the story of the middle-aged man whose wife died. He invited almost the whole village to his house for the wake and then poisoned them all, even the children, by putting rat poison in the food. Apparently some of the villagers had been mean to him and he saw a golden opportunity to take advantage of their sudden sympathy for his loss.
As far as virtual property is concerned, it seems the law is a step behind in many countries. Which is odd, because numbers in a stock market or computerized banking system are really just "virtual money", but there exist very clear and extensive laws pertaining to the illegal manipulation of these digits.

WTF do you know about Chinese culture? If you are not born and raised there then you have no say in it.
You came to that judgment from reading an online article of an isolated case that happened all the way on the other side of the world?
If judgments could be made like that, then American's most favorite pastime hobbies include smoking weeds, farm orgies and school shootings. How that sound to you?
