    noone, not even the original article says wow has anything to do with child molesting, what are you guys reading? They are saying a former WoW player...the guy doesnt live in the real world, he is only known online so they mention that he played wow....

    A little more context would be nice. How old was the "child", and was she consenting this? She clearly came back to it repeatedly. 30 or 40 times. This isn't an isolated rape, so I'm a bit suspicious.

    Maybe he can sue Blizzard for making him a child molestor.

    Your post doesn't make sense, "she came back to it repeatedly", there's plenty of people who sexually abuse younger relatives for years, it doesn't mean that the victim was somehow okay with this tough. Your post make it sound like the victim "allowed" this to happen because it happened repeatedly.

    Why the fuck is anything bad that someone did who played WoW connected to their gaming in the news? I never see "guy who enjoys basketball/cycling/playing guitar busted for sex crimes". Likewise, I never see, "WoW player gets Physics Ph.D.!".

    I'm a tad confused as to why/how WoW has anything to do with this...

    [sarcasm] They told you video games would turn you into a criminal. WoW turns you into a child molester. [/sarcasm]

    Yeah, who cares if he played WoW? Never heard of this guy, and before I even read the charges, I still hated the guy for being a rap parodist.

    I was going to say something like:
    "Turns out normal people can be molesters, too."

    Then I checked a few of his videos.
    Yeah. Normal. Look; normal people don't put stuff like that up and pretend it's good. Normal people would make a song, play it, listen back at it, and decide that it's crap. Well; if it's the kind of quality of a genuine 'Propostris,' that is...

    When I first started playing WoW, I saw two gnomes of opposite genders, not wearing gear. The male was /sleep'ing, and the female was ontop of him /dance'ing.
    Changed my life forever.

    Am I doing it right?


    Yeah it's sick, but it's not WoW's fault.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    I partly agree. If that "relative" was a third cousin twice removed of 17 years, this story would be meh at best.

    That she "came back" to it on the other hand is a dangerous statement. She might have been forced to it... maybe he blackmailed her?
    Story really doesnt give much info about the victim.

    Breaking News: Most predators used to go to school! School makes people child predators?!?!?!
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community

    I'll be honest, i read the thread title and immediately wondered if it was a person or two in my guild.

    I think we all have one or two people in guild that we wouldn't be too surprised to read about in the paper one day.

    Most journalists reporting on sex crimes will make some statement about what/who this person was before they were charged with the crime; especially if their involvement put them in direct contact or interaction with kids.

    ...former camp counselor.
    ...former head coach.
    ...former WoW player.
    ...former teacher.

    Its pretty weak journalism in this case and the author went so far as to say Propostris' videos were "It's the kind of stuff my son is heavily into, but he is only 16" as if to support relevance. I'm not really seeing too much in the way of WoW-related youtube videos on his channel that are newer than two years old. Most of his stuff is just god-awful. This is not to mention that the author seems more involved with what the guy did for a living or what he did in his spare time than the crime that was committed. TMZ does better reporting that this.
    Atheist, anti-theist, pro-gun, pro-Constitution, anti-racism, pro-gay rights, anti-war, anti-corporatism.

    I like how the video they linked in the article is "I'm Screwed".
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.
