I deeply despise people who think censorship is good.

I despise them with a violent and murderous rage.

All WoW needs to do is request classification... the game's T-rated in America so it shant get anything greater than that in Australia.

The problem, according to their governor general is that game companies are putting the disclaimer, "Experience may change online."

Wow, way to top yourself Australia.

Cartoons = real life,
Funniest home videos = child abuse,
Adult magazines banned from petrol stations,
Record year for video game and movie banning,
Mandatory internet censorship for the entire continent..

Is the place being run by grandmas or something? What's next? Are they going to bug people's homes in order to monitor/prevent their use of cuss words?

This isn't going to end well.
