both sides have their points and as long as we live in a country that has things it needs to protect people like the fbi, cia, and nsa are needed.

life usually isnt a conspiracy.

i would agree that sending people randomly into online gaming communities is probably not a very cost effective means of catching anything, but at the same time you have to agree if they were actually tracking someone its not like they would advertise it on cnn either.

with what little we know the best we can intelligently say is "oh, thats odd"

This didn't need another thread.

Yes bad people use social games/networking to do bad things. If any are using WoW, i hope they get found. I could care less if any mention of high risk buzz words get you watched online for a while...

Long story short, it's not an issue, nobody should care unless they are a terrorist. Get on with your own life.

I've never understood the hate against a government looking out for bad people. It's like being angry when the police pull you over for speeding. You were doing something you shouldn't have been and you got caught. When I see a police officer I feel relieved, because it means that someone is around that is watching for foul play. Internet is so big now that it needs to be policed. I for one, welcome Big Brother into our games. It's about time the anonymity of the internet isn't a complete shield.

Getting paid to play games is more common then you might think.

I had a brief job with Geek Squad where I was paid to 'watch over' the Second Life world and answer any questions from random passerby's.

Twitch is filled with streamers who make a living playing games.

We've seen dozens of people post on these forums about earning well over 30k using the RMAH.

I'd imagine that the FBI, CIA and NSA jobs on social gaming/networks goes beyond joining guilds and running raids though. It's likely less fun then you might think. Still, I'd take a job like that.

The team from Skill-capped just split 105k between the 3 of them for winning at Blizzcon.
That was for Wow.

“If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

― Samuel Adams

awkward wording on this statement :D

I do wonder why any subversive group would bother using a game that prevents them from communicating for over 8 hours on any given Tuesday. And it must be hard to have a conversation with spam bots interrupting every couple minutes.
