Question from Ring

Dear hosts of RSBANDB:

Do you think Jagex has reached it's climax. They have brought back the wild, and free trade, to appease players. They have also made quasi-crap updates to keep the players from noticing the lack of quality updates. Is the end soon? Is jagex beginning to fail? Will more people (like me) begin to loose interest in the game, and cancel their subscription?

Also: Do you guys support people lying about their age to achieve online accounts. For example, I could help my (10-12) year old sibling get a facebook. Is that wrong? Or do you think the laws "protecting" children digitally (13+ law etc) are ineffective. Personally, I have been lying about my age online since I was 10. I am going on 17 and I am now encouraging my siblings to do the same thing, I am just curious to know your opinion.

Thanks and keep up the great show.

I sometimes listen to your show while driving my siblings around. Shane, my brother calls you "The blue guy" for some reason...

P.S Trekkie: Do you love me?
