Dr Tanya Byron today called on critics of the games industry to "stop panicking, get a grip, move on in the debate and just be sensible about who plays what at what age, and what's appropriate."

She's going to anger the right people if this gets out of hand.
I think it's excellent for someone in her position to take this kind of stance towards gaming detractors. It's a rare case, and at least she has some sort of integrity, at least more than those who jump on the old "games are evil" bandwagon.
