I'd think there was a higher proportion of dark and angsty roleplayers than
there actually is.  Would I actually think that rape and torture were part
of the game?  No, except perhaps in certain corners that didn't have much to
do with the game in general.

Of course, I'm an online veteran with a strong civil libertarian bent, so
it's not MY opinion that matters.

I suspect that somebody with no online experience would fully expect all
sorts of abominations, like murdering pregnant women.  I'd be inclined to
laugh at this.

Apparently they'd be right and I'd be wrong.  *shrug*  Go figure.
