Following on from "You've got mail" I'm waiting for someone to write
the screenplay about a someone presenting as a vulnerable 13 year
old child in an online game in order to entrap and punish
paedophiles, who then manages to entrap such a specimen who they
believe is a 40 year old male. When they meet at a rendezvous, it
turns out that the 40 year old is the 14 year old son of the 30 year
Eventually the masses will be educated and everyone will be better
placed to appreciate that a virtual world isn't, and really needn't
be, anchored by real people in the real world.
The less believable details are of the real world in the virtual
world, the safer the denizens of the virtual world are from it. Just
as it may be dangerous for real people to believe in demons and
goblins, so it is dangerous for avatars to believe in real
people. As demons may present as angels, so real criminals may
present as 'real nice folk'.
