It seems that an old Roblox problem has been revived through an official statement from the Guatemalan government. It is a very rare story.
Roblox is a game that has managed to maintain and even grow its community thanks to the fact that, for the most part, everyone is very close. And while it is true that from time to time You can see people doing silly things, it’s not like gambling really represents a problem for the youth, far from it.
But it seems that Guatemala really thinks that this game it is so dangerous for children that they need to make it known to the entire population through a special communication.
Internet Explorer X Slowpoke
It seems a lie but even at this point, video games are still a taboo among the population, who They are branded as violent, dangerous and something that could cause big problems for children who play them, or even adults.
And it is that you will always look for a scapegoat who can be blamed instead of really trying to solve the problems that society has. Such is the case that we will see now, where, surely through Internet Explorer, the government of Guatemala alerted parents to be careful with Roblox.
This is the statement official published on January 8, 2021.
This release refers to an event that happened in 2018 last year where a couple of hackers modified their characters so that they went through the Roblox security check to be able to mount a scene of abuse to the avatar of a girl. Something that the developers themselves managed to solve and that has not been repeated since then.
The thing is, this is old news, literally almost three years since that happened and it was an isolated event. Currently those responsible have already been banned from the game.
While it is true that parents should always be aware of their communications on the Internet, Roblox is far from being the biggest problem in this regard. And it is very rare that just now a conflict of 2018 is revived through an official government statement. But hey, who are we to criticize?
