Censorship or not?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I just read the following [url=http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-violence5oct05,0,3603336.story?col... in the L.A. Times about possibly restricting sales of violent video games to minors:

[b]As the video game industry gears up to release a new generation of consoles that allow even sharper graphics and more realistic action, lawmakers nationwide are considering bans on the sale or rental of violent titles to minors.

In California, for instance, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has until midnight Thursday to act on a bill that would ban the sale to minors of games that "depict serious injury to human beings in a manner that is especially heinous, atrocious or cruel."[/b]

Personally, I think it's fine. I don't really consider it censorship. Minors are now restricted to what films they can see if they're not accompanied by an adult. I support a parent's right to decide what kind of sex and violence their children are exposed to. I'm really pissed about the Nip and Tuck billboards that are all around L.A showing a naked women with a knife stuck in her with two clothed men standing over her. I'd love for that kind of advertising to be illegal. But now I'm rambling. Thoughts?
