    Let's make sure we don't regulate it.

    We can't regulate it. It would be unconstitutional.

    C'mon. It's not like it's going to have any real-world effect.

    There are plenty of violent first-person shooter games and it's not like you see people going around shooting up schools, movie theaters and workplaces.

    I know five-year-olds who watch The Walking Dead. Those kids will never develop any problems separating reality from fiction.

    Look, we all suffer from adverse effects from being here and reading sj.com. Just look at YF's kid, o_t, oop, Poin, RS, Rip, ... me (was warped before I got here though).

    Dick, check out the cute photo in the ICYMI YF thread. She's frowning and there's a whole playful discussion as to why. No harm meant - that was what I was referring to.

    To be fair, I was also wondering why you would post that until I read the ICYMI YF thread.
