FBI PSA. Gamers. “You took your time.”

FBI PSA. Gamers. “You took your time.”

The FBI has just releases a new public service campaign in New York. It’s hit the press pretty well, but gamers are wondering why it took so long. Tonia Hastings (not her real name) has been harassed for years by creeps on the internet while plugged in to her favourite MMORPG platform. “I always choose a male avatar and fake profile photo when I play for real.” Tonia deals with unwanted advances and rude comments if she chooses to appear ‘female’ on these platforms. “It’s a great thing, they’re launching this campaign, but weren’t they aware of this problem 10 years ago?” It’s time to inform the parents. You’ve probably seen the press, but here’s a good youtube video for more information.
