Feniks comment makes considerable sense though. His point is simply that the server is notorious for the behavior in this particular spot. The bar example was on point though, you don't go to a place that shows a behavior you KNOW is going to occur, and complain about it, because you choose to go there.Though a better example would be a group of people sitting around in a circle talking about various sexual positions, and a random passerby walks up to the circle and tells the cops. In both examples, it doesn't break the law/ToS as Blizzard has demonstrated there is /ignore and chat filters in game, and the majority of problems ARE solved with those options, just people expect to not have to do anything. The game comes with a warning as part of it's ESRB rating "game experiences may change during online play" and that comes as part of the community. It's not WoW's fault that a few parents are sheltering their kids. And Blizz does give tools at the parents disposal to deal with this kinda thing, but if they neglect it *and the ignore list is pretty huge, for those who haven't filled one* and /ignore literally prevents you from seeing anything that person emotes/says/shouts/whispers/guildchats/rolls on.I'm not even defending the group, as for all I know they could be hitting on this kid *thus, harassment at that point as it's 'directed' at someone. But the reverse side of things has the ball in the parents court. It's time they took some responsibility and learned to use the tools provided. Ignorance isn't an excuse
