I would be surprised if anyone here disagreed that many so-called "sex offenders" don't deserve the title and shouldn't be on any list. We can
tell anecdotal stories all day long about an 18 year old guy and his siz-weeks younger 17 year old girlfriend getting caught, about somebody sexting
another, or even outright fraud. It''s the result of an hysterical public and ridiculous interpretations of law. It's a dysfunctional system.
Pedophilia is real. We're not talking seventeen year old girls here. We're talking ten year old children, even younger. And these guys cannot be
fixed. Talk to any psychologist, any corrections officer, anyone who deals with the hard core pedophiliac and they'll tell you these guys are
incurable. They are "highly likely to re-offend." It's not just a matter of them having done the crime and served the time, therefore all is
forgiven. Whether it is genetic, or the result of childhood trauma having been abused themselves, or just something wired up wrong, these guys are a
menace to society and any children around them. In my state such a "Level 3 offender" can be locked up for life, regardless whether he has served
his sentence. After incident after incident society as a whole has decioded to take the stance that society has a right to defend itself against
sexual predators. These laws were nor formulated in a back room or a vacuum. They were formulated after intensive public pressure on lawmakers to "do
something." just like the wave of gun laws today, exceot there is no Constitutional amendment protecting the rights of the pedophile.
Now, no one has the "right" to play World of Warcraft. The game is a private enterprise that DOES have the "right" to refuse service to anyone.
It's just like ATS. You don't have the right to be here and you can be banned for the most trivial of reasons that aren't crimes by any stretch of
the imagination. You have mod-cops swarming the place dinging you on language, "manners and decorum," or even the topics you are allowed to post
about. Certain subjects are disallowed. If you even say, "Hey, visit my website!" you can have a thread removed for the "crime" of self-promotion.
Although many people here dislike some of the "T&Cs" of ATS, few would suggest they don't have the right to enforce them.
It's the same with World of Warcraft. It is apparently a fertile hunting ground for pedophiles and WoW has the right to protect itself from the
activity of these people. And yes, I have some sympathy for someone who really shouldn't be on a list like that. On the other hand, perhaps the 22
year old who took a 15 year old girl home with him should have asked a few more questions instead of allowing his hormones to lead him around. Taking
a stranger home for a one night stand has all kinds of dangers associated with it. He managed to find one. They call it "jailbait" for a reason.
Most people on those lists deserve to be there. Sorry about the strays, but WoW has every right to kick them off.
