Have a Nintendo Xbox? Watch out for the Japanese and Australians sending porn!

Seriously, there's so much fail in this article I don't know where to begin.

Quote:
NBC -- A Texas mother is outraged after her 11-year-old son was sent pornography by an online gamer he met while playing his Nintendo Xbox.
"When they are playing against their friends, it's a controlled environment," explained mom Rosie Garcia. "But when they join a party, it can be someone in Japan, Australia, anywhere in the world."
Rosie's son sent a message to one of those players challenging him.
She says that player then sent her son the pornographic pictures.
Rosie immediately called the San Antonio Police Department.
She also called Xbox and gave them the GamerTag information on the accused predator.
Rosie didn't stop there.
She also went online and filed a complaint on the Xbox page.
This can only happen to your child if you pay for the Xbox online service.
If it happens to anyone in your family, the FBI encourages you to report it.

I'd love to know what games they were playing. I'm hoping for them to be violent games just to add to this brilliant story.

Love the comments, "I have a Sega Atari. Once, I had a Sony Gameboy, but they recalled it. KSDK, my 4 year old can write better content than this."

My mom calls my 360 a "Nintendo Playstation thing." Old people are hilarious when they try to talk about technology.

E: Also when my dad got his new computer she asked me if it "has a bigger gigabyte?" o.O

Not only old people. I remember once when a schoolmate asked another one if he could lend him "the internet on a floppy disk" and "if it will work on his computer". That was back in 90's when the internet was not such a "mainstream" as it is today (at least here). Nevertheless, it gave me a chuckle.

But then who will you send pornographic pictures to on XBox?


I liked this comment: "Is this about MicroSoft or Nintendo XBox. Very poorly writted article, I could do a lot better."


And what's an 11 year-old doing playing online unsupervised anyway?

Why is it that hard to monitor your own children? Or are you too busy lobbying the government to do that for you?

Here's the easiest solution to the problem stop writing congress asking for babysitting laws, and raise your own kids.
