    Curse you, Gig, I was about to post that! Anyways, here's something, too.

    It's a recap of the entire issue. I still think he should stick around. It's best to have someone against video games that we can easily defeat.

    No, he needs to get the hell out of the spot light. Someone who can bring facts to the table should be stepping up, someone capable of an intelligent conversation and present actual FACTS and can come to compromises with the gaming community and who isn't so out of his mind that he wants to shut down a multi billion dollar international industry single handedly.

    Because really, the only reason why there haven't been any legitimate heavy hitters against gaming yet is because there's not enough concrete evidence pointing in the way of increased violent behavior in minors who partake in video games.

    Yeah, that's probably true. I am just worried that someone more competent at blasting games might come into play, is all. It could be good or bad, really.

    Either way, there's enough statistics and facts about Juvenile crime rates (which have been SHARPLY decreasing since around the mid 90's) that nobody can really hold a stick to it, and exclusively blaming a video game without taking into measure other forms of media and the environment for which a child is raised in is ludicrous.

    This is why we have reports of possible increased anger issues with teens who partake in several forms of violent media, but no single handed proven fact that video games make you kill people.

    Makes sense to me. AO should throw a party for when he is disbarred.... we should like, I dunno, send him a community E-Card or something.
