[Air-L] Virtual worlds as not just a new medium

Hello everyone,

I am hoping you could give me some ideas about where to find citations to 
finish a book chapter.

A reviewer said of my book chapter, in which I am arguing for how study 
users' reception of virtual worlds, the following:

"as you well know many scholars oppose this view of VWs as just another 
medium. our chapter might benefit from looking at those scholars that defend VWs 
are more than just a new medium." Apparently I do not well know this because I 
do not know exactly who to cite. 

Who are the scholars who are opposing this view that VWs is just another 
medium? Specifically, I was arguing that we cannot treat virtual worlds as 
wholly unique experiences of reception because it is a "new medium".  Are there 
others out there saying the same thing, only I have horrendously overlooked
