Bright Hub writes: "In World of Warcraft, as in life, you're bound to meet people who seem to derive pleasure only from tormenting others. It's no surprise, then, that these people have found a way to bring their grief-inducing behavior into the virtual world by developing several now-classic in-game pranks.
Some are simple, like tricking people into quitting their guild or shutting down their WoW client, while others are more sinister, taking on the form of undesired transportation or an unsolicited influx of communication.
Love them or hate them, the fact is that these pranks exist and are actually quite common. Learn about them and ensure that you don't find yourself the victim of a practical joke."
