Aussie R18+ Debate Hysteria

Gamers-Underground.com 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.

I'm confused by this sig, it seems like the perfect response to his "comment"...maybe someone hacked his account and put it there to tease him?

To him, many of us probably look as crazy as he looks to us. If he gets that worked up, then he must think it's us who are crazy and need to wake up (at least that's what I assume it means).

I've always assumed it's an act and he's just a troll anyway.
