2,100 sex offenders booted off online games

Postby Zero-Fear » Thu Dec 27, 2012 10:50 pm

Thousands of online gaming accounts linked to convicted sex offenders were shut down in the US this month.

Operation: Game Over resulted in the closure of 2,100 accounts registered through Gaia Online, NCSOFT, Funcom, THQ and other gaming platforms. Earlier this year 3,500 accounts were deleted from Microsoft, Apple, Blizzard Entertainment, Electronic Arts, Disney Interactive Media Group, Warner Brothers and Sony as part of the same clampdown.


So like...wont they just register new accounts with fake details? Wouldn't it be more intelligent to just monitor them..to know where they are not scrub them from your list? Keep your friends close but your enemies closer was never heard @ Microsoft

DISCUSS!

I guess it's a less creepy way for old men to "play with children" in a situation where teabagging is alsmost normal.
