Headline is a little misleading as TFA identifies the supposed online threat to the 'flakes as actual  paedophiles, fraudsters, etc., and says "Hey parents did you know Xbox also does voice/video?"

Yeah, if your kid's a camper, chances are they're going to go on a killing spree against the most vulnerable targets. Parents, know the signs of camping before it gets out of hand.

Remember kids, if someone wants to meet you, be sure to pick a nice isolated spot with no witnesses. And ALWAYS turn off your cell phone before going.

Don't feel bad, parents. My sister & her hubby raised four children in a lovely home on a lakefront in a really low crime community with good schools; their kids attended Church always and they all graduated from good Catholic based colleges. And their youngest son wants to be a Cop.

I just wrapped up a killing spree in Saint's Row 2, so I'm getting a big kick.

//And also feeling absolutely no desire to do anything like that in real life.

It's true though. I play Fallout 3 all the time, and I can't tell you how many real life feral ghouls and super mutants I've killed now. It's so bad, my picture is on the cover of the new DSM-V!

Stop meeting people online.
Instead, meet people in bars, where they would never lie or commit any crime.

Sometimes when my wife calls and asks what I'm up to on my days off, I tell her I'm starting a war against America because Washington bullied Almaty again. She just sighs.

There was a period of my life where I was utterly consumed by Morrowind.  It got to the point where if I was outside for some reason, I would notice various plants and flowers and idly wonder to myself what their alchemy properties were.

A good camper is going to see you coming and have you in his scope before you know it. It's kind of their thing.

You can tell that videogames result in real world violence because everyone under the age of 40 who commits a violent crime will readily admit to having played a violent video game at least once in their lives, and people over 40 commit less violent crimes on average than those below 40. So clearly it is the videogames that are to blame.

[Citation Needed] and don't be feeding me those bullshiat studies funded by Focus On The Family or their ilk. Those guys are as biased as possible; they called me once and fed me this leading question "Don't you think R-Rated movies are terrible for children?"

When I said no and I like R-Rated movies and watched them when I was younger and turned out fine, he said "sorry, you're not who we're looking for" and hung up quickly.

Video games don't make you violent.
You want a game that will make you violent? Try playing this one.
Make sure to sit right next to your girl friend. She will wish you dead. Or vise versa.
Either way, there will be no lovin.

I just watched American Psycho and, even though I've read the book, was the whole homicidal maniac thing just a personal fantasy or did he really get off scot free? It's been a while since I read the book, but I'm pretty sure he spends time consoling someone after her sister had been found... Well, let's just say it wouldn't make even a brown wrapper directors cut.
