Parents need to step the **** up!

Just moments ago, I was in the living room with my grandfather who was watching the news. Apparently some 14 year old girl in my state of Virginia invited a 28 year old male from Florida who she met in some online vampire game to come have sex with her. They are going on and on about the dangers of online gaming, and how absolutely terrible online chat is. all i have to say is WHERE THE **** ARE THE PARENTS?!

Online gaming is not bad. There are bad people in the world, and yeah, just like those of us with good intent, they also use many of the same things we do, such as the internet. Parents need to start setting child locks! XBL has parental control. Wii has parental control. PS3 has parental control. Computers have had parental control since the 90's. I blame this not on the ignorant 14 year old, but on the parents. They should have been more aware.

Wow, that's horrible. I do agree that parents should be more diligent in monitoring their child's online excursions. Similar situations and creeps like that 28 year old really give online communication a bad rep.

Aw. I wanted it to be on Fox News so I could laugh uncontrollably. Anyways, problem here is that the parents and the people involved don't want to be accountable for their own actions and mistakes, so they pick something easily scrutinized and vulnerable to attack.

It's society for you. Too ignorant to take responsibility for their own errors in judgement and their own mistakes. It's easy to shove it onto something that can't react or defend itself on its own.

Can't forget the news anchors here either, who are completely clueless and ignorant to the gaming community as a whole, and instead pick an isolated incident involving morons, and assume we're all like that and that online interaction is the root of all evil. Yeah, go blame Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Myspace, CNN, Orkut, Tumblr, and every other god damn social interaction tool the next time something like this happens due to its use in said action.

Will they, who the **** knows. All I know is that everyone involved in this are either morons or REALLY lack common sense. Probably a combination of both.

I have no sympathy for the 28 year old man here. Honestly, if I saw him, I would probably break his nose or worse. I feel sorry for the girl who was victimized, but at the same time, she brought it upon herself. Most of all, I wish I could spit at the parents for not watching their kid.

This is why I don't add people on xbox, forums or anything to facebook. Or give out my name or city (last name that is). People need to have common sense obviously. There is always some sort of child lock thing too. I'm basically just repeating what people said. Some things are just obvious anyways. You can never be too careful. Nothing bad should really happen unless your as stupid as this girl but still. I remember my parents flipped when I first joined forums in 2008, they've been all over this even though I'm nearly an adult. Constantly saying everyone out there is bad... They go a little too extreme, but whatever, I'm not an idiot.

Edit: Fun fact about child locks. I had to lock my older brother out from watching DVD's on my 360 when I first got it because at the time he watched DVD's for like 8 hours straight and I was worried. So I just set the DVD rating thing down to G or you needed a password :P
