Word of the Day: Ganking

Raph Koster has an interesting meditation on another interesting meditation on, er, ganking:

Ganking is defined as “someone powerful attacking someone weak.”

including this wonderful peroration:

true gankers were rewarded by fading into nobodiness, unable to attack or eventually even interact. Blank-faced, and eventually incapable of interacting at all. Insignificant, unranked, not even recognizable. The thought was, if you ever actually did render ganking as meaningless as its victims call it, the gankers would fade away, snarks and boojums all.
