    This is for official meet ups, organized events by Sony &/or their partners, not just another thing for sexual predators to exploit.

    @2, you know what a real MMO player would say:

    “Better off raped up the ass in real life than raped in the game. Your real life ass will heal, but that kind of rape-age in game is permanent.”
