I strongly agree with this motion.

Minecraft is a place to relax and play with your friends, but it can be dangerous.

Many people play or host their own 'multiplayer servers' from which people can connect to around the world and play with their friends, however this is where the problems come.

Many teenagers/adults will come onto a server and swear, or abuse people. Yes, this can be prevented using plugins, but can be violated using "rt"""ł"t""". This is a bad influence on the kids.

Sometimes, people will communicate whilst playing team games, using software like Skype and TeamSpeak 3. People can persuade children to give away personal information etc.

Thank you.

First off, I would like to say that I am a big fan of Minecraft. And second, how often are you going to find a kid that is playing that game on a computer at school. The schools have certain programs that prevent them from downloading anything without approval from the school board or the principle.

Obviously in school, it should be banned. Although it is good, by putting someone in an architectural mindset, it does little to actually influence the mind to get an educational benefit from it.
