The Shortest Internet Censorship Debate Ever

night_flyer seeing a pattern? (169 comments)

Child porn is a problem, so lets block all porn.
Meth is a problem, so lets put Pseudoephedrine behind the counter.
Irresponsible people with pit bulls are a problem, so lets ban all "dangerous" breeds.
Evil people killing others with guns is a problem, so lets ban all guns.
Over-consumption of energy drinks is a problem, so lets ban energy drinks.

none of the above "solutions" actually solves the problem, it just infringes on the rights of the people.

night_flyer writes "It has been reported on the Troll Lord Games website that D&D co-creator and father of Role Playing games has died. "Gary passed away at 1 am at his house, no funeral arrangements have been made yet. I spoke with Ernie Gygax not five minutes ago. There were many tears.
