    ...a molestor driving along can see your child on the backseat and start sending messages....

    What a load of crap. If picochat was used by child molestors, you would be able to see them. The maximum range of wifi on the DS isn't that much.

    Even tho I have not click on the link but I think I know what story you guys are refering to and thats the one on FOX news right...? Yea what are the odds of anyone using pictochat on their own and to have someone join is an extremely and I mean extremely rare odds...

    This is the prime example, no the DEFINITIVE example of media over-hyping a stupid little thing like pictochat. I can't even begin to describe how unlikely it would be that your child would be a target for pictochat pedophilia. Jesus.....Christ.....I even hate saying those two words as a curse, but really....this just dumbfounds me.

    On an offtopic note, anyone else able to type messages so normally when they are drunk?

    well, i guess we're not going to see pictochat 2.0 on the next nintendo portable console (if they were planning), or at least not in the US if the news keep exagerating like this on simple things... should they warn or scare the parents?

    yeah, this is about the third one I think..
    classic FOX news, can't stand that network [​IMG]

    What's really annoying is if Nintendo had a decent online service for Wii/DS they would get so much negative media because of networks like FOX with their agendas

    The locals on my Fox News channel reviewed Brain Age once. So I guess, that anchor, well, he's a pedobear. [​IMG]

    Ya know, it may be good if the news and general public stopped trying to keep children from learning about sexuality...I know it sounds like a pedobear comment but its probably the only reason why kids are having sex and stuff early on is because its so taboo to media and they think they are being badass...like if you were allowed to drink at 12, and if it were this way for hundreds of years instead of all of a sudden "LOLZORZ lets go partay!!! and drink cuz it legalz!!!" how many stories would you really hear of kids getting drunk and dying and stuff.

    BY THE WAY. WHAT IN THE EFFING WORLD IS PEDOBEAR. I keep hearing that and have no clue.

    That video is from a while back.

    The shining moment is this video was the reporter talking to the kids from outside their room with his pink DS Lite. The possibilities are slim though, because you need PictoChat open while the game is off. I have never used PictoChat before. Doesn't sound so molesty.

    They went out and molested children by using their DS, that's where they get all of their statistics.
