Joseph DeLappe, an associate professor at the University of Nevada Reno, has started using the US Army's online propaganda and recruitment tool, the "America's Army" game, as a protest platform. He logs in with other gamers, but rather than joining in with the killing, simply posts the names of soldiers who have died for real in the Iraq war. It's obviously provoking some interesting reactions from other gamers, one of whom responded by posting, "u aren't encouraging me to join the services". Duh
