Welp, here goes. Maybe I am jaded or some sort of anti-hero but I don't understand the need to worry about what goes on with other peoples lives after you kick them from the guild. It was your responsibility to prevent drama in the guild and you did your job, but who cares what they are doing in game. Once you put yourself in the role of internet caretaker then you will feel the urge to get involved in all sorts of stuff you shouldn't. If the girl has a crappy home life then so what. There are social programs out there that deal with that sort of stuff and have proper training. Some goofball internet person isn't going to help the situation and probably make it worse. TL;DRIts not your place to deal with some online kids daddy issues. The world always needs more strippers.

@SlyfourrouxWhat a terrible thing to say, and what a terrible thing for me to laugh at.

Until the shoe is on the other foot.What a perfect example of the self-centred, cold-hearted attitude that permeates the world.It's amazing what a tiny bit of compassion can do. It's too bad most people are too busy shoving their heads futher up their own asses to give a crap about anyone else.Excuse me, but I have to go puke now...

Guys, say hello to your average WOW Player. Its sad that this honestly is the average guy whos playing WoW right now.

Indeed. I always resist people who try to pry into my life from their internet vantage point. It's indicative of insecurity. Baggage is the same whether it comes from real life or the fake life of your choice, and it's never fun for other people to deal with. Sometimes the best medicine is to realize that you shouldn't go to people on the internet for emotional fulfillment.Honestly, I have trouble seeing how this girl is being 'exploited' if they are never going to meet in real life. So what if they want to play the game together, and Eventually people grow out of these things.The following comment will have me downranked mercilessly:Female guild leaders always, always bring more drama than necessary. If I was in your guild, I wouldn't hesitate to /gquit. It's stuff like this that I try to avoid at all costs.

Normally I would agree with you. Once a guild member is kicked for breaking the rules, their actions should no longer be your concern. However, when there is a minor involved we must take extra caution. By the time your in your twenties I assume you have had enough life experiences to be completely responsible for your actions; however, with minors and to some extent 18-21 year olds, some kids aren't mature enough or experienced enough to handle certain situations emotionally, physically, and/or socially in an appropriate manner and need extra mercy, compassion, or protection from their family, friends, and to the lesser extent community. For every 15 year old girl that wants to have an inappropriate relationship there are probably and sadly ten guys waiting in the fringes. In the case powerless took the appropriate measures based on the evidence presented to him. I think that he is justified in his concern, because we are talking about child abuse on a serious level. There is nothing wrong with wondering and hoping that the best outcome occurs after you are no longer involved. The fact that you are okay with someone's daughter growing up to be a stripper is sad.

"Jaded anti-hero" is probably the kindest description of your point of view. Troll, is probably more apt, but assuming it isn't - It's clear that this girl was at risk and the letter writer took all the appropriate steps to maintain his and his guild's online play experience and protect the other, much younger player from further harm. Just because you don't want someone in your guild in an online game doesn't mean you want to see them humping a pole.

It has nothing to do with being a typical wow player, it has everything to do with the internet though. Go ahead and white knight some underage girl you know absolutely nothing about. Go be her friend and take her hand and lead her through these oh so troubling times. You never know, she just might promise her virginity to you! Or you can let the girl make her own decisions and grow up on her own without being coddled and having her hand held at every turn. I'm pretty sure if she can play wow for any length of time she isn't dumpster diving for food and has at least one parent that can provide for her. Pretty much every kid does really dumb stuff when they are growing up, its part of being kid. Feeding them creepy overprotective sheltering just encourages their retarded behavior.

SlyFourroux: "Female guild leaders always, always bring more drama than necessary."I hate comments like this. You're deliberately setting someone up for the fall. It goes something like this.Jerk: "All females/blacks/Muslims/space aliens are uptight/cause drama/can't take a joke."Member of Targeted Group: "Hey that's racist/sexist/offensive."Jerk: "See! I told you so!"
