The day on which virtual people made me cry

Heather of Pretty Little Sith wrote about her recent traumatizing experience in Star Wars: The Old Republic:
 "A few weeks ago, several members of my guild (...) quit the guild. I was unreasonably upset about it! I cried a few times, which is absolutely a ridiculous thing to do over something that happens in a game." 
It reminded me of how I once felt the same in Lord of the Rings Online, after an event that was at least as, if not even more, silly. Now I think back at it, the reason feels ridiculous, but back in the day I felt so involved with the game that it was all very real to me.
