To the Holodeck

I'm assuming that everyone will know what a holodeck is (as that term is used in the Star Trek universe), but if not, this article explains the concept.

Poll #1883452 Holodeck

If a holodeck like the one seen in Star Trek shows was available to you, would you use it?

If holodeck technology was available, would it be morally wrong for someone to use it to act out scenarios that would be horribly wrong if done in real life? (E.g. murder, rape, sex with minors, cruelty to animals).

Yes, it would be morally wrong and should be criminalized
5(14.7%)
It would be morally wrong, but shouldn't be a criminal act
9(26.5%)
I'm not sure
14(41.2%)
No, it wouldn't be morally wrong
