    Yes, let's equate banning a video game to killing the entire population of Australia

    Oh, gamers! What wacky things won't you say?!
    Thanks for the title fix.

    The state in which Australia's in is fine (well, sort of) already.
    There is no need to just censor and ban things that other countries deal with fine.

    Nice one Australia.

    While you're at it, why not just simply close every australian ISP and completelly shut down the Internet in Australia? That should protect your 15 years old from all the bad and evil stuff like sex.

    Oh god, I'm so conflicted. I hate that furry cesspool which burned my eyes but I also hate the Australian government's crusade on videogames...
    This.

    Time for a coup?

    The government probably has the Australian internet cable on their desk, with a pair of scissors right next to it.

    But oh well, it is not as if this new 'filtering system' is going to stop me from playing any of the MA 15+ games I enjoy.

    breaking news, no sharp objects are allowed in Australia, as the government can't trust people not to cut themselves.

    bubble wrap jackets are currently being posted to every citizen.

    What next? Ban Wikipedia because it has an article on sex? Ban Google because you can use it to find porn? Ban YouTube because there's footage of M rated games?

    That's very possible given goverments keep people stupid (not showing up on major news networks/papers), and small steps to coax them.

    MMO's can't really have a rating as the content is determined but who's playing it. Since it can't be rated, it's banned.
    Garrysmod is next.





    Really, when you think of it, garrysmod can be dirtier than most games, all depending on the user.

    The very mention of something happening to Steam makes my eye twitch in the not-so-sane way.

    I've spent about $600 on my account for about 70 games, so forgive me if I actually IRL snap at someone threatening to take it away D:
    It'd also be suicide for my flatmates who run an internet cafe, given that pretty much all of their business is through the Steam Cyber Cafe program.

    Hey Aussies. You guys can't just sit back and let this guy do this to you. Protest and strike until he lifts this ban.
    It always starts with something small. Then it'll escalate to something much bigger.
