Yeah. . . There excuse for censoring L4D2 was that the zombies looked more realistic than the first. . . wtf! they're zombies, how in hell is a massive Tank realistic in anyway to a normal human. It is quite violent as well, but what isn't nowadays. I've played way worse than L4D that aren't censored. . . It's seriously totally ridiculous.

I thought Kevin Rudd was gunna do better to Australian not turn it into China.

I thought that was his plan from the start? It's ironic really, taking a worse off nation to base your progress on. I went there for a 'holiday' once. Aside from instantly getting sick on landing, it's just not a place you'd want to live in, everything seemed depressing, and the grey smog that coveted everything in the horizon didn't exactly help either.

Wait a minute, this isn't a thread about China!

But my perception of their living may be skewed due to Australia being 2nd on the HDI list.

Yeah I didn't want Rudd when the election was going on, but his dastardly catchy 'Kevin 07' scheme seemed to reward him nicely.

Games being censored in Australia confuses me. I mean if the rating's 18+ then who ever purchases the game is an adult and can decide for themselves if they want a violent video game or not. Is there a petition or group against this I can support? If so link.

On another note. Can we all add each other on Facebook? Here's mine.

Look on the bright side: the main factor in video game censorship is the Attorney General from South Australia. To create an R18+ rating for video games all the Attorney Generals need to agree and it's just SA that wont. Chances are that as soon as he's gone it'll happen. And until then you can always get your games from the UK which is most likely cheaper for new releases as well.

As for the internet censorship it'll be a damned miracle if that legislation actually passes. And in the incredibily unlikely event that it does pass it's not possible for the censorship to come into effect until at least feb/march 2011 and probably wont until much later because the major elections will be march/april 2011 and ol' Krudd wont want to introduce something so controversial just before elections.

Funnily enough, I was pretty pro-Labor when the election was on 3 years ago. He seemed to have a lot of good policies, but it's the shit ones he's obviously snuck under the radar that I didn't notice.

I was the same, I was barracking for Kevin, mainly because of all those good things he said like all school students get a laptop (didn't happen) and all the change in Australia's health and whatnot (I really haven't noticed much different either).

The government see passed that and always think of the children. It's the exact case as of why they're green lighting the internet censorship. . . Because children can enter and see various different resources through internet, that being violence or sexuality. Well at least that's what I think anyway.

On another note. Can we all add each other on Facebook? Here's mine.

Sorry, but I usually only add friend to FB if I know them personally (in person).

Although, if we ever to plan a NG meet, I guess I'd accept whoever would be going because it's an easy way to contact and message each other.

The reason I have an issue with them doing this is... it's not a game FOR children so what's the point censoring it for children. In the end if the child (underage teenager I suppose) wants the uncensored game he/she can get it (internet). So it's ruined for the rest of us (the age group the game is intended for) for no reason. It also promotes illegal download of the game and ends up being detrimental to their sales. What the hell is Australia thinking?

This did happen, or at least it happened in my school. ...But by 'every student', they meant 'every student in year 9 and under - because they obviously need it to ... Wait, what? They don't need it AT ALL.

Outrage.

It doesn't matter though, because they weren't laptops, they were netbooks. They're actually really bad. You might as well call it 'a really bad external hard drive that you can occasionally type shit on if you didn't mind the health problems associated with using laptops.' Their generation is gonna be fucked with back and eye problems, I'd have to say.

Either way, Kruddy lied.

Oh, yeah. . . To think of it, our school has it as well, but I never knew about it until just yesterday. But my main point is that Kevin Rudd promised more than he could give.

When politicians are protecting the children, they don't let silly things like common sense get in the way.

It's because their parents never let them have 'Pong'.

Just mentioning (because I sometimes don't respond): All of the corrections/additions (for the user list) I've received via PM and seen in the thread, I have written down and noted. So continue to send them.

All politicians are lying, hypocritical sacks of crap and have been for thousands of years. We should be thankful; Australia is often voted and decided on various criteria as being one of the best, if not the absolute best, places to live on the planet and I would agree. I've traveled all over the world and there's nowhere I'd rather be.

I've heard and been told that as well that Australia is one of the best places to live, and I'd rather not be anywhere else either, I love Australia, but much like many other country's, there are always many different problems and situations.

Even though he was only looking at pictures of a bikini model he'll probably still get fired and if he has a wife or girlfriend he might get dumped as well. Serves him right for being such an idiot.

Apparently someone else in the office sent him the picture in an email, and wrote in the email, "now turn around". So yeah, if what I heard is correct, he got pranked. If anyone would get fired, it'd probably be the pranker. Awesome prank anyhow. I LOVE YOU, PRANKER IN BANK!

Dumped for looking at pictures? How? You must have been with some over-sensitive women.

I haven't personally been with anybody that bad but you know how some women get touchy about guys looking at half naked pictures of other women, especially when they're doing it live on national television and the video then goes viral and people all over the world watch it. I can imagine him getting chucked or at least sleeping on the couch for a few nights.

I'm sure there's a way to do it legally, I'll just have to figure out how. If there were only a 4 or less people working on it, it shouldn't be too hard to organise
