Half-Life 2 AU Woes?

SumeaLaunchpad (thanks Voodoo Extreme) reports that the rating Half-Life 2 has received from The Pan European Games Information system results in the possibility that there is no rating that will allow the game to be sold in Australia. No decision has been made on the game's fate down under, but here's the cause for concern citied in the article:
The Pan European Games Information (PEGI) age rating system has given Half Life 2 an R(18+) rating. This means that minors are unable to purchase the game in numerous countries like Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. What's really interesting about this is how the game fares in Australia. The Australian Office of Film & Literature Classification (OFLC) has yet to classify Half Life 2, but if the board follows suit from their European counterparts, it'll mean that one of this years highly anticipated titles is banned outright from sales here. Currently, Australia has no R rating for games, so game titles need to meet the highest rating available (MA 15+) or they will be refused classification.

You puked up: "If you support Bushco, you're against civil and human rights, plain and simple." Yeah, that's rational. The Voice of Reason. Methinks your presentation of "the facts" is freakishly suspect. You refer to me as an irrational anti-liberal nutball before and after making that rarified statement. Wow.

And: "you like the "ignant 'mericans" you currently are."
Thanks for proving my point re:your irrational prejudice.
East Coast born & raised here, lived in Europe for nearly 9 years. No military. Seems that I just might have a slight educational advantage over you in the political science arena, having "made" more than my fair share of law. Take my meaning?

President sets the economic course for the country? Vaguely spoken like a political neophyte or a clueless true-believer; meaningless in either case.

EU doesn't spin it's unemployment numbers? You're nuts.
Pro-fascist? That's the realm of the big-Fed Democrats like yourself. You said you studied political science? State's rights ain't the realm of the Left.

My obsession with Madison: you and yours seek to dictate the common good (anti-Madisonian), but are now being challenged in that regard by the so-called moral majority. They have a different idea of the common good, but seek to implement it the same (Federal) way. Hey! How dare they tread on that traditionally Demo territory? Oh wait- they WERE Demos until Reagan came along. Nice going- feel free to take the extremists back. Barring that, I trust that you will both consume one another.

Your aspirations re: deciding who gets to vote don't square with your self-proclaimed love for civil rights and democracy. Hey, we could go back to only allowing land-owning white males to vote- sound familiar? But in this case, it's you who gets to decide/set the standard which determines who votes. Very democratic aspirations there, you hero-of-the-common-man, you. Love how you support NAMBLA's right to free speech and would deny voting rights based on educational and IQ req's. You're a champion of human rights? I suspect that you wouldn't know a civil/human rights violation if it stripped you nude, posed you in a comely position, and took pictures of your little prick.
