The government isn't to blame.

Blizzard isn't to blame.

"Abhorrent Taboo" isn't to blame.

You know who's to blame? The parents of this 12-year-old for letting their kid play an online game which clearly states in its ESRB that content may change online.

Parents -- please be parents, and don't leave the job up to video games.

The article states: "The underage gamer took screenshots showing a member of 'Abhorrent Taboo' continuing to proposition the gamer for 'ERP' even after he/she stated she was only 12 years of age. The posting of these screenshots is what prompted Blizzard to shutdown the guild, according to the theorizer on the forum."

Even if she was just stating that she was "virtually" twelve, there's no law being broken -- I don't even think it breaks Blizzard's TOS.

blizzard's TOS also says that they can delete you and tell you to get a life. if this girl were abducted due to playing this game, blizzard could face a lawsuit.

I face a lawsuit every time I turn on my computer or drive my car down the road. I'm sure Blizzard's fending off at least a hundred at any given moment.

But how many of them are frivolous? How many have even the faintest chance of winning?

Bah -- the article was very vague about what this is all about, anyway.

Actually, I read it wrong.... I thought she said she was 12 in the game but in real life she was older.

Sorry about that

I wish I still had the link to the video. It was this guy and he discovered two wow charters engaging in ERP they had no armor on and they were talking dirty to each other... When they found out they were being watched they were pissed and called the other guy a pervert. :laugh:

We had the same thing going on in Anarchy Online during the early days. Not just ERP, but also all-out prostitution, public strip-shows and whatnot. It doesn't suprise me even for even a microsecond that this case popped up for Blizzard and WoW either.

Hell, I know that this sort of thing is actually more common than most people, and ESPECIALLY parents, know. As an avid RP'er myself, I've seen it often enough. It's there, it's real, and it comes it pretty much every shape and form there is, from mere stripping/erotic dancing to scenarios where you have rape, BDSM and everything else. Just as in real life, and often just as disgusting if not worse. Most of it is hidden, but sometimes it comes out into the open and people are shocked, horrified and start blaming the game-company. Why?

It's not the game-company's fault that people get off on pixels. Neither is it the game-company's fault that people do this or are exposed to it, and every time people start bitching about this or that company "allowing" this to happen, it annoys me to high heaven. The company designs and makes available a game-world with it's features and content, and people fill it with life. Then who's to blame? Partially the parents of the kids that are caught up in it, since they don't seem to bother and/or take interest in what their kids are doing (most because they haven't the slightest clue what so ever, and even less of an interest (and treat the computer as the babysitter that you don't have to pay), and partially the mere fact that if you put people into a situation where they have a perceived belief that they are anonymous, they'll do the strangest things. Give a person anonymity, a stage and an audience, and you'll have them change their behavior so completely that you'd think that you've never met them.

These things are present in ALL MMO's, regardless of what people say. In some it's more acceptable, like for example Second Life. Why people are surprised I have absolutely no clue about.

This is just sick and twisted. How anyone can do something like this is beyond me. They should be killed excruciatingly slow.

LOL..Maybe I'm getting old, but when I buy a game, doing something like this doen't even cross my mind. This just adds to the WoW gamer stereotype as someone detached from reality.

Whoa whoa whoa! Hey there cowboy -- save the excruciatingly slow deaths for actual pedophiles, okay? :p

This guy was guilty of nothing but being a creep and a weirdo, which, fortunately for computer aficionados like us, is still legal in most countries.

wait, does WOW have emoticons that i don't know about? because as far as i know, /strip isn't a valid command. if it's just erotic chat, there should be no problem.
