The problem with the torture quest lines is how close it skirts to going over the line and with DK's in particular that you have no choice in avoiding the New Dawn torture quest if you object to it. I seem to remember it had TPs attached to it and I'm not sure if you could leave the starter zone without completing it so for those of us who don't like those quests we had the choice of never playing the class or doing quest content we don't think is appropriate. Clearly blizz knows there are some lines you don't cross as I don't remember any quests where you rape anyone, incest, child abuse, etc. So obviously blizz has some lines in the sand, I'm not entirely sure where they got the idea that torture didn't fall into those same taboo categories but one of the recurring themes from the 9 pages of posts on this topic is many people are not comfortable with torture being used as a form of "entertainment" and shouldn't be forced to participate in it if they don't want to. I opened a ticket with the GMs to complain about it, I encourage everyone else who has a problem with being forced into torture quests, as with the DK starter line, to let them know you're not happy about it. If blizz wants to incorporate more mature themes then they can change there ESRB from "teen" to "mature" and be done with it. (which I doubt they want since part of their revenue comes from family's who play together and preteen audiences)
