Is Nintendo's Miiverse safe for our kids? Not likely.

#1Dave_KirkhamPosted 1/29/2013 3:08:53 PM
Judging from the flood of topics across the Internet, including here, it seems Nintendo's Miiverse is an unsafe environment prone to grown men stalking and harassing young children and others pretending to be the opposite gender.

What should Nintendo be forced to do to deal with this epidemic? Seems very irresponsible for Nintendo to allow it's lackluster Miiverse to get to such a low standard of protection for our children.

Miiverse has the strictest mods possible, blocking any numbers, foul language and drawings, and spoilers.

You can't have a master account unless you're 18.

There are parental controls on the console.

If parents would actually step up and be parents instead of passing blame for their lack of/bad parenting, there wouldn't be a problem.

TC has more than likely little to no experience with MiiVerse.

It's not Nintendo's job to protect your children. Yes it is nice of them to attempt, but it's mainly your job to teach your children how to be safe on the internet

It's not Nintendo's job to be your child's parent.
