Well they're not backing down as far as gambling games go, but they turned completely 180 degrees about non-profitable games and that's what's important to most of us (I don't gamble anyway).

As much as I hate bringing this stupid thread back on top, I had to post this:

Well it made me chuckle. But then again I don't go out much, being a world champion and all.

Roll eyes (sarcastic)

One thing that needs to be remembered in this debate is that the idiots,(reads politicians),who create the idiotic laws in the first place. More often than not they seem to be ignorant,greying old zombies who are shown a quick bit of 'net porn for 30mins by some hippy "family-please think of the children-family group",& instantly pronounce all gaming as something practised by 8 year old kiddies or by sick demented loners.

For instance in Australia our "learned fathers" have deemed that currently any computer/console game rated as "R" (Restricted, for 18+ years or older),is banned from sale here. In other words the maximum rated allowable games here are Mature Adult 15+years ,meaning there's apparently no gamers above 15 years old here!
