"The online community of World of Warcraft has led to a minor coming into possession of a 30-year-old’s nude photos." Poor choice of wording I think. WoW isn't what led to this, a pervert taking advantage of it is. If it was WoW it would have been something else.
Ye there is only so much control they can have, its not like she sent the pictures using WOW itself. Also... 14 yr old boy gets really upset to the point of being noticed in school, because some woman sends naked pics of herself?!?! - Must have been 1 ugly F****r haha. When I was 14 I basically had free reign of the internet on my own comp (i.e PORN), so I wouldn't have been arsed at all about that lol, even if I was like 12 that wouldn't have "upset" me lol, would've just like blocked her or something. Must have been brought up as a hardcore Christian or something?
wrong title. it should be, F*cking pervert pedo sends naked pictures to a 14 year old. who ever wrote this title is fail. Generalizing is amateurish and stupid. Learn to report. @Darkstorn below so let me get this straight, you don`t play wow because you are afraid to get naked photos from a pedophil? I am suprised you use the internat because you have as much a chance to get stalked by a pedophil online as you do in wow.
There's this thing called the internet that allow anyone one to say/send what ever they want. Users beware. I'm sure the 14 year old was use to chatroulette anyways.
THIS is why I don't play WOW...
why would it stop you playing a game? It can happen on ANY online game, its up to the ""victims"" ; (lol) themselves to have the brains whether to add old women or not! An open/free internet still outweighs having 1 that is filtered/managed by governments etc.
i think u just confessed to everybody that you my friend are an idiot :)
I don't know about you guys but I find this fucking hillarious! In World of Warcraft anything is possible!
When I was 14 I was actively searching for naked pictures and even hardcore porn. Studies show almost every single 14 year old does it too. These types of stories are so full of crap, probably designed to shock old people.
WOW is the accessory to the crime. The means that made it happen for this incident.
you kidding right? *facepalm* where does the internet conection, PC, network cable, mouse used to click, email service, forum, ect. fit into this this? I can`t believe you actually blame a fantasy game for this sick act instead of the sic person themselves. Stupid Politically corret world, its the end of our civilisation I tell ya.
You think this only happens in WoW? It happens everyday around the world and very few are reported.
nope, I don't think WoW is the only one. In this case, it was. The article doesn't blame WoW. It says someone used it maliciously to distribute photos.
She's obviously not a supermodel then.
South Park reference? :P
Game is shit and filled with weird ass people.
and your comment is proof that you are a generalizing know nothing and have no idea what you are talking about. I guess when one lawyer blames videogames for school violence, you agree with him, amirite? Cause it is the same thing, gj.
Only addicited players will defend it. Its filled with alot of weird ass people, they all pool into a game called wow. This is the one game i'll generalize because of how bad it is for society. MMO's are terrible for health, I'll never play one again after WOW. You should consider quitting it'll do wonders for you and the millions of other addicts.
Suspended with pay? smh. What's wrong with people? Suspend that girl without pay and she'll hopefully learn something out of this sitiuation. And If the teacher was hot and the lil boy told on her ! smhhhhhhhhh
teachers unions. she wouldn't be fired even if she murdered the kid.
her vagin must hang like sleeve of wizard, otherwise, that kid wouldn't have said sh#t.
Another good reason to play WoW. /s
Like that kid has NEVER seen naked pictures on the internet before?. Wuss.
yeah,the kid just did it to get someone in trouble. he prob didnt fancy her thats why haha,i sure if she was hot he would have started something up
I can't believe they blame WOW but not the adult or parents of the 14 year old or the 14 year old himself cause I have a feeling he knew what he was doing. Stupid publicity and articles like this ruin it for everyone as some moron Senator or Congressman will use this as a way to regulate or declare video games immoral or some stupid crap like that. The only legitimate complaints in video games should be that Dx11 video card prices need to drop and when the hell is Half Life 2 Episode 3 coming out?
"when the hell is Half Life 2 Episode 3 coming out?" YEAH!
I wanna see the pic's, hehe Edit* http://www.theledger.com/ar... nvm :(
Is it weird that I think she'd be pretty hot if she lost that weight?
OH GOD kill it with fire! i thought the kid might have been lucky but GOD NO.
Yet another reason why I love living in Florida... we get the best weirdo criminals.
Well I'm from Wisconsin, the serial killer capital. No joke, I worked at the hardware store where Jeffrey Dahmer bought his acid.
Really? i mean its not like he couldve gone on the web and just found different ones :O edit: Oh and there are women playing WoW xD
Wow. Ladies if you want to send nude pics to guys over the net I'm pretty sure there are a bunch of guys over the age of 18 willing to accept them no matter how good or bad you may look.
This happens all the time -- at least, I think so anyway. I mean, this is just one incident that's come out to the open. Someone out there, somewhere, may be committing the exact same act right now.
what a little homo, it "upset" him? i remember being a 14 year old, you could fap to damn near anything at that age. pics of the chick from precious nude were just as good as megan fox when youre 14. his classmates are outright getting hummers and having sex at that age and he tattles like a sissy over some pics.
Agree with the majority of comments.. the kid is clearly gay.. how can a naked pic upset him? Unless she's Hogzilla at 14 i'd have been overjoyed to have an older woman sending me pictures like that.
my guess is he watched brokeback mountain at a young age.
...and liked it.
Stupid title. The author should change it. Trying to blame WoW for this is like finding out the pedo uses AT&T for their email and cellphone. Also drinks 2% low fat milk and watches Project Runway... and claiming all all of them are to blame, and lead to pedophilia. Get off the kids' ass. Obviously his parents raised a child that isn't a moron. Taking a look at all the stupid ass kids in the world today, and all the crap they do... this teenager is probably the only one who is on the straight and narrow. Kudos kid, kudos!
wow that is just...wow... -_-
With more people on Wow than there are inhabitants in Sweden (where I live) stuff like that are bound to happen, despicable, but ultimately unsurprising
Assistant principal too... lol...
Aces. Free gaming porn. Finally, an incentive to sign-up to WoW.
