Roblox and suitability for children/educational value

    Not posted for a while, good to have a reason to!

    My pre-teenage son is keen to join the online Roblox site. So far, I've read through the Wikipedia article and glanced at the Roblox home page and it all looks very family friendly, but will be looking into it in a lot more detail. My main worry is exposure to online bullying. I'm also interested to know what educational value (if any) there might be to it, as (amongst other things) you can script objects using something called Lua. Is/was anyone a player/parent of a player of Roblox, or has scripted in Lua for Roblox who could comment on the above. Any advice or comment from anyone really.

    Oh well, back to the housework.
