"Sporn" has Made it Into the News
« on: July 04, 2008, 02:16:22 am »
Well, it was inevitable.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25272162/

It even mentions how the pirates who got ahold of it early were making some of the most nastiest creations their perverted minds could think up.

Though article was created on June 20th, this is still a bit shocking. Of course, the genitalia-shaped creatures are now being removed as they are uploaded.

Yea, I read it somewhere else as well. I forgot the side as a friend of mine pointed it out and laughed at me for me wanting to play a game like that :P

Wow. For a second I thought it would be a "video-game industry or sex industry" thing.

Pretty fair article, in my opinion. Don't see why it's necessary though.

How did your child ever nurse (aka breastfeed) when they were an infant? Did you cover their eyes?

Gawd that's annoying, the "smilies" don't show up on my computer for some reason, so I have to resort to ; - and ) to get a wink.
Meh!
As for sporn, I don't know why The News would make a deal of it, I'm sure there are many games out there with the tools to allow crude behaviour. Not like the creature creator I mean, but in the same context. Thats like making a deal out of people using rude names in World of Warcraft. It's bound to happen

I have a confession: I like the sporn. Not sexually, but it can be very amusing, and I'd love to be flying through space in Spore, and come across a planet of penis creatures.

BURN HIM


Anyway, the news is all about shocking people/turning molehills into mountains. I'm sure if, as said above, mspaint were a 'new' thing, and noonehad made a drawing program for computers before, the newspapers would be doing the same thing (oh, yes, drawing is all well, but they can also make 'drorn', so it should be banned or, at least, boycotted by any of our readers)
