Q: What does PK mean?

I've seen this internet slang online called "PK" and I think it means Person Kill or something like that, but I don't understand its meaning. Thoughts?

The original word for PK is Penalty Kick in the deciding round in soccer ( football) games to make a break. You know what it means if you know the game.

PK stands for "Player Kill(s)" - in the west we refer to it as PvP (Player Vs Player).

It began in MMORPG video games (even though the term is not really used anywhere else besides China), but I've seen it in TV shows and even daily speech in China, which is probably why you asked the question.

A:Do you mind providing a link, or a source for this ?Honestly, I think it would be self-defeating to propagate Marx's ideas in China, at least for the powers-to-be. It would be bad for the harmony of China. That's why I'm asking you to provide some serious source, that sounds just so irrational to me, unless it's a completely warped rewriting of Marx. I would much less surprised to see Kong Zi pushed forward and Lu Xun put in the shadow. Ho... It happened already http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-08/19/content_742530.htm !Why I think so ? Marx said something about those who hold the capital, and those who generate capital while not owning it. That those with the capital owns the right to make laws, the ability to enforce the laws and bend reality to their will. Those who don't own capital but make capital tends to be exploited and kept in their situation. Why on Earth one would harshly criticize the very foundation of modern China, if it's not to undermine it ? -- DrMonkey
