CNN Tackles Hot Spore Porn Issue

CNN:

"When makers of one of the most anticipated video games of the year invited users to help design part of the game, the gamers jumped at the chance to create animated characters. Creatures designed by gamers, like these, are shown in a database on the "Spore" Web site.

Users will have the option to incorporate other people's "Spore" designs or choose to block them all. But some took it upon themselves to create something entirely different -- a new kind of Internet porn." (Culture, PC, Spore)

cool i can now open links again anyways i read the whole thing and just wanted to point something out.

"I consider this very similar to child pornography, at least to the extent of distributing the material to children," 18-year-old Michael James from Calgary, Alberta, told CNN. James said he has flagged about 10 of the "disgusting" creations.

hmm what you all think about that? i think its stupid games aren't just for kids now.

I think honestly that any game that allows content creation will need to get a rating of Teen or 15+ and above, trying to control or police users will never work.

Agreed RealityCheck. Any game with content creation is up for scrutiny if they decide to make the game rated E for Everyone. Its difficult to police this stuff. Put up the disclaimers and be on with it.
