The Thurston County Sheriff Department warns in this helpful posting [edit: they seem to have taken it down, but here’s the Google cached version] that those who indulge in “fantasy adventure games such as Dungeons & Dragons” are showing a warning sign of “possible computer crime problems.” Along with an unusual vocabulary consisting of “computer terms, satanic phrases, sexual references…” Or you have files ending in “GIF, JPG, BMP…” on your computer. All this means you are likely to be victimized by online criminals.
What the hell?
Come on guys, the D&D players were the feared ones, the ones who were going to be the demented criminals, back in the ’70s and ’80s. Who is wussing it up so much that we’re victims now?!? That’s what we get for letting up on the Satanic killings.
To be fair this seems to be a pretty old posting. So we still have time to reclaim the 2000’s as the bad guys and not as easy marks for Internet predators. Roll a d20 and get out there and burn something down! Quick!
