    Those name filters tend to be hit or miss. I've seen screens of some really crazy names in WoW.

    Attorneys have filed lawsuits against the makers of violent games, alleging the violent content causes real-world violence. I think that violence in video games is inspired by the real world.

    What do you think, Data?

    They stopped the sale of GTA IV in Thailand after some complete idiot murdered a cabby and claimed that he wanted to act out a scene from the game. When will people learn that the cause was not videogames, but the fact that the guy was a complete nutjob? Some people are just mixed up and anything could set them off.

    I wonder if another guy in Thailand would murder a family saying "The Devil made me do it!" if they would Ban the practice of Religion?

    Ah see, but religious people have total fanatics. They also have influence. Religion is accepted. Nowadays if I say that I like to play videogames half the people I say it to look at me as if I am retarded. Gamers are sitting ducks and still looked upon as immature simpletons.

    If half the people look at you like you're retarded, then we're only 1% away from being accepted!

    Yay, Video Games!

    I hadn't actually thought of it like that. Somehow that makes me feel a lot better.

    I think the main issue is that violent computer games and TV make good scapegoats for societies problems. It is much easier to blame computer games than to blame a breakdown in mental health/care.

    Just like how people blamed sickness and other maladies on witches and bad spirits, it's easier to fabricate blame rather than research what's causing the problem. A lot of people just listen to what some individuals have to say instead of identifying all of the contributing factors.
