A South Korean law banning children under the age of 16 from playing online after midnight has gone into effect. The law, also known as the ‘Cinderella Law,’ was passed earlier this year in an attempt to curb gaming addiction in children.
how will they know ?.. lol so lame
haha, both lame and funny.
What happens after midnight? So lame. I am beginning to lose all hope for humanity if governments are allowed to make these kind of retarded decisions that should be NONE of their business... they do it all the time and they have done similarly unfair things in the past (banning perfectly safe drugs causing their available forms to become dangerous, fund organised crime, spread blood bourne diseases and risk criminal records for young people being one big example that most countries seemed to think was smart - then they use the state education system to lie about the dangers and the effects to the new generations. Another would be taxing fatty foods... what the hell - they are an essential part of a normal diet and it's carbohydrates and sugars that people choose to make themselves fat with) but honestly... I thought the world was moving forwards. Oh and they can never undo that mistake because it will be instilled as the correct way to do things within a generation or two, and any politician looking to correct the idiocy will be unable to make any progress because they will be labelled and the government would 'lose face' for going back on their decision. edit: waaaaaiiiittt..... why are that kid's hands on the arrow keys? They found the one bad korean gamer kid :O
What sucks even more is that these parents can't teach their kids how to set limits. If your child spends 8 hours a day in front of a computer or on a console, perhaps your parenting skills need a little bit of work?
If something like this ends up in the US, I'm seriously gonna question our government... You would think Japan/China would have laws like this, but Korea?!
I think it has a lot to do with their network infrastructure. Imagine a city block full of apartment complex's, now lets say each tenant in those has an average internet speed of 14.7Mbps. Still with me...Ok now can anyone think of how that kind of average would affect how someone uses the internet?
