Aussie R18+ Debate Hysteria has an outrageous clip from an Aussie news report that unequivocally states "Gaming causes more harm than smoking," claims that in "Modern Warfare: Call of Duty 2" (in case you were wondering about their level of fact-checking) "gamers plot terror attacks against civilians," and says "psychologists say that regular exposure to games like these actually rewires a child's brain making them more amenable to violence." It's official: The Aussie R18+ debate is generating more BS than a cattle ranch.

yeah cause you know playing games where you rape, murder, kill, steal, assasinate, do drugs and the like is such a posative thing to do. and causes so many posative images to be floating around children and teens heads.

So heck yeah, why care about all the school violence, violence against parents, shootings, foul language, harshness etc of todays youth why should anyone care about silly stuff like School shootings every week anyway.

you people are bling and foolish and nearly all of your brains have been warped by this junk yourselves. why is "adult" content always, sex, rape, murder, debauchery etc? Ever stop to even think for a second that maybe "adult" content should be love, kindness, respect, self-control, self-sacrifice and other similar trates?

All of the supposed "adult" content is being put into games that 9-14 year olds play and watch at the movies and listen to in music hour after hour and day after day.

and you foolish people think this will have no effect at all.
