Ideally it would meet COPPA compliance or else server admins may find
themselves under criminal and civil suits. As John mentioned parents
will freak out if they walk into their child's room and hear some
player shouting certain things. In Pennsylvania it is a crime to
knowingly say sexual content at a minor. The law has more leeway on
printed speech but laws governing voice abuses are much more long
established and clearly codified. Also how do you deal with general
abuse such as someone yelling a vulgar insult or even SHUT UP etc. It
is very different hearing someone's voice with emotional content
rather than just seeing the text. If implemented it should only
broadcast to player's who explicitly opt-in.
