Kevin Zuccato, head of the Australian High Tech Crime Centre in Canberra, says terrorists can gain training in games such as World of Warcraft in a simulated environment, using weapons that are identical to real-world armaments.[/quote:4d9141473f]
I love this part, I wonder what kind of wow weapon they practiced with. I’m thinking it might be "the sword of a thousand truths" :)
Looks like we will soon see the next generation of terrorists moving away from nuclear and biological warfare and moving on to axes and swords.
I love this bit
"Searches of the SL website show there are three jihadi terrorists registered and two elite jihadist terrorist groups."
So there is 3 guys and between them they form 2 groups?
Oh my god its an invasion! they have taken over Second Life! I’m not sure whats happening in WoW but its the end of the world!… of warcraft. (sorry had to be done)
Has journalism lost all integrity? This kind of cheap scare mongering is unfortunately getting through to some people. In a funny and slightly related story. My teenage brother’s best friend has had WoW removed from his computer because his father read on-line that playing the game will turn his son into a satanist/hacker. This probably came from some minor site somewhere (I’ll post a link when I find out where) but the above article is disturbing because it comes from a "reputable" news agency. Does anyone else ever feel very disappointed with the world we live in?

While quoting a Fox News report is hardly evidence after watching this I’m going to go with yes.
