@7, I'm not sure what is unclear about the paragraph you quoted, but I'll do my best to put it in other words: All of us have both sex-impulses and logical capacities, but usually there is a need for one to be controlled by the other. The urge for sexual satisfaction often puts people in danger of doing things without thinking about the consequences, unless we control ourselves and stop to think of both parties' well-being before we act.Fortunately, all of us are capable of rational thought, so once the potential unhappy consequences of anonymous ERP become known, people who wish to do such things can stop and make sure that the other person is a consenting adult before they get involved. I don't know how you heard me say "your logic is not equal to everyone elses logic, nor are your standards, your morals, your tastes, your sex." I'm sure your logic is just fine, and you can reason out the possible consequences of various behaviors as well as I can.Regarding parental supervision: I think the question of how much parents should supervise their children is beyond the scope of this article. Instead, I'm saying that regardless of how much parental supervision any given child is getting, WoW is a virtual space for the general public, like a theme park, and players do not have the right to expose other players to sexual content in WoW unless all members involved in any way with the ERP are both *consenting* and *adult*. Since "consent" may be clear but "adult" may not be, it is the duty anyone involved in such things to make sure.Proving everyone's identity may take some of the fun out if it, I guess, but it's really the only way I can think of to be responsible about it.
