I'm glad. Neopets is a lame Pokémon ripoff that not only teaches kids gambling, but turns them into addicts. I think it should go down, that way kids can get off their butts and do something else.

Agreed all the way! All my brother has been talking about 24/7 for the past year is neopets, neopets, NEOPETS! I'm getting ready to tear my hair otu! He even uses neopets as a reference to MATH problems!

I hope to see that site shut down in the future, no offense to addicts. I used to like it, but now, I see no hope in neopets future. I suggest going to psypets.net instead :furawatchi:

And they said they'd shut down the gambling games, like Bilge Dice and Blackjack. Not neopets. Darn it! :furawatchi:

Real reasons for shutting down neopets would be:

1: Too addicting, some people have an unhealthy addiction to it.
2: Gambling -Imagine little kids going to real gambling site because they associate Blackjack or poker with neopets.
3: All pets that aren't Shoyru -They're useless :huh:
4: Missions -You all know how neopets gives you missions, sometimes from bad guys. Well, little kids might think it's all right to do favors for bad people.
5: Haggling -Kids'll start bothering real shopkeepers.

Hey, here is a quote from someone who signed the petition.

"Ahh...This happened in October 2004, it is now May 2005. Look how far we have come. The Aussies won and we got our games back! Who rock? (AUSSIES!) Who suck? (Today Tonight) Thanks to other countrys for suppoting us too :huh:"

I didn't know that the games were actually taken away at some point! And what's this about Aussies won and thanks to the other countries for supporting us?! When did all this happen and what happened?!?!?

The 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th, apply to my brother:

neopets is the only site he goes on.
He play Scorchy Slots, Dice-a-Roo, and Keno all the time.
He does lots of quests for Jhudora or whatever her name is.
He haggles. A lot.

Hmm.. since when did the pets goto the orphanage if you didn't feed them? I've had pets "dying" on there before and they've just stayed like that till I could feed them. They didn't get sent anywhere.
