@C-Olimar Well said....as a life long Nintendo fan who actually enjoyed Swapnote and used it almost daily, I am highly offended that I am not in the valued "age market" for a company I've supported a quarter of a decade. You are indeed correct that Nintendo had done their job initially by having MANY parental control options in place for all related wifi use. Parents didn't do THEIR jobs because that would have taken 3 to five minutes of their time to set up the controls.

This is the best opinion piece on the subject I've read. The internet hasn't been shut down and there is child porn and all sorts of unsavory things. I've been very outraged by this, having supported Nintendo by buying their games and systems for 24 years. It is my firm belief that Nintendo had enough parental controls in place. PARENTS didn't use the controls or we wouldn't be having these issues on a scale to warrant shutting down the whole service. I blame parents not parenting. I also think they should have excluded it JUST from the 2ds since that is the system aimed at small children. Are they going to shut the web browser off next even though it ALSO has parental control features? Kids can access porn through that. I've been stating this rant for two days now: Nintendo wants to SELL us a communication app with parental controls ON the app since parents are too dumb, lazy or uninterested to set the controls through the system. It will be a communication app similar to Swapnote but much more regulated and they will charge for it. They weren't making money on Swapnote and that alone is a good enough excuse to scrap it.
