What’s “griefing”?

According to minecraft wiki:

Griefing is the act of irritating and angering people in video games through the use of destruction, construction, or social engineering. Popularized in Minecraft by teams, griefing has become a serious problem for serveradministrators who wish to foster building and protect builders. Most players tend to dislike and frown upon griefing, while others feel it adds a certain degree of drama to the game. Trolling however, is different from griefing, because afterwards players give their items back, and repair any damage they did.




Minecraft Dads at odds

Note: Penny Arcade is a web comic that is sometimes often not “safe for work” or the fragile temperament of this minecraft dad.


“Sic semper tyannis” = “thus always to tyrants” a shortened form of “Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis” = “Thus always I eradicate tyrants’ lives” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sic_semper_tyrannis ) . So “down with tyrants” more or less.
