Honestly, the title of this article is HORRIBLE. Like World of Warcraft or Blizzard had anything to do with this relationship. Shouldnt the title be more like: Irresponsible parents allow 10 year old child to play online game.

Andrew, comment on the story not how bad you phail at life. That being said.

Many MMO's have some type of interactions like this, but this guy went to the extreme. Parents to a point should watch but after I say 13-14 they should let go. This parent was irresponsible yes, but you also have to see that the child was an idiot to go to this point. I am sure WoW has warnings like "Never arrange to meet players in real life"

Its just a tease title.....being how WOW is the most popular MMO its the center of lots of articles....from parents playing WOW instead of feeding their baby to teens just not wanting to get off the computer for anything else.

Regardless, the two carried on a physical relationship for two months, meeting several times at a motel and the girl's home.
Both the girl and the man are stupid, I suppose.

No, title should be "Parents should teach kids not to lie about their age"

Fair do's the guy shouldn't have banged her after finding out (that part is his fault) but this all started because the 10 year old lied about her age.

The guy was actually quite smart, waiting 4 years to meet her face to face since if all he knew was that she was 14 when he met her then waiting 4 years would have made her 18 and legal.

Instead he was originally chatting up a 10 year old tart who thought it would be funny to blag it on an online MMO

I feel sorry for this guy. He knew her 4 years through just talking to her online. Going to take a big stereotype leap here and say that there is a strong chance that the guy is not the most socially normalized guy if he's been playing WoW all the time for 4 years, and probably doesn't connect emotionally with tons of girls. He thought she was 18.

Sure wasn't smart messing with her at all but he probably had genuine feelings for her -- it wasn't like he had a big plan to abuse a minor or anything. I think he should get into trouble about this, for sure, but I hope the judge doesn't like imprison him for decades, 'cuz I personally think that would cause far more damage to his life than the consensual relationship did for the teenage girl.

I thought it was kinda sad, yet kind weird. Why would the little girl even lie about her age to someone on the internet, let alone on Wow. Why was she even getting that close with anybody on that game. Its just weird. Get somebody local. Don't go for somebody 4 states away. This whole thing is messed up, and if the girl was probably around 15 by then, why the hell did the mom freak out so bad as to call the police o account of basically *bleep*? The girl wanted it obviously. She not only had a phone from the guy, but had talked with him for four years, then even had *bleep* with him multiple times. either girl completely betrayed her Wow fondler, or there's something we missed.

Dude got played, that's what happened. That's why those kinds of relationships are taboo, because things like this happen.
