A European parent-teacher group called Familles de France is apparently suing Linden Lab to prevent minors from signing up for Second Life, saying the grid contains “pornographic photos and videos in free access [where] users can mimic sexual acts, going as far as rape scenes, bondage, zoophilia and scatophilia,” according to a report on GamePolitics.com. A court hearing is set for June 18, the site states.
Let me state how fucking moronic this is to me... Parents need to spend more time watching their kids & knowing what they are doing online rather than suing every time their nose tickles. I am a parent of a teenager and she is never on the computer without my permission. The desktop is locked down til she asks me to get online and I put in the password. I know all her passwords & monitor her activity. Hassle much? May seem like it to a lot of people, and it was at first, now it's just daily routine. I even let her play in the Teen Grid until the LL password fuck up scandal. She is never unattended online and it's not because I don't trust her but because I don't trust others. Just like Lala said this morning, "There are so many online predators because it's a harvesting ground of children who aren't being watched." This is so true. I'm tired of people blaming LL for being bad parents and fucking up my escape to live my fantasy world the way I choose to live it. If I want to be a neko (and I am) and fuck like a bunny, or play nice with dogs, be friends with mice or what the fuck ever... I should be allowed to. I pay $9.95 usd in premium account fees on top of my $75 usd a month tier. I think that gives me some say in my slife, my world, my imagination. What it boils down to is this... The problem is client side. it's not a LL thing.. It's a "Parents not watching their god damned kids" thing.
WATCH YOUR FUCKING KIDS ONLINE!
