On the other hand, of course, I do believe the technological aspects of virtual worlds can help build electronic skills with technology like the internet. There are so many things we can use the internet for including information and communication and without the skills to search for topics of interest on Google or IM people with AIM we would be considered technologically challenged and therefore may not be able to get as far in the business world. Having advanced computer skills is a very valuable thing to have on someone's resume.
I really liked the point someone said about virtual worlds being used as entertainment and I really agree with that. I did not know why the people in the rape article took the situation so seriously. When you join a virtual world and create an avatar you have to be aware of the risk of harassment and if you are not a strong enough person to ignore it then you should not be on the site in the first place. These sites should only be used for entertainment meaning they should be filled with people who create their avatars that are completely separate from their real lives because when people start acting like their real selves it borders on reality and not virtual reality.
