"I can't believe you are actually having this discussion. Do something useful, like protest the Chinese for harvisting organs from tens of thousands of living political prisoners just because they practice Falun Gong. http://faluninfo.net/article/827/ "Unfortunately you don't realize that, on some level of consciousness this normalizes and justifies torture. Even if it is just a game, the people who do this quest are subliminally less taken back by the act of torture. It is a good thing that people are aware enough to realize that even in a game torture shouldn't be accepted. If you really do hope to see people protesting civil injustices and torture in china, than you shouldn't make light the fact they are uncomfortable with role playing such actions. As knowing wrong from right is the first small step on the road to rectifying society's problems, and a good sign of righteous moral fiber. Even if protesting torture in azeroth gets us nowhere in reality. It is good to know that people have strong enough convictions to speak against what they disagree with. Maybe some of these people will turn to social activism because of the way that this quest made them feel.
