Uchiha has much to be proud of
Brazil bans Counter-Strike

Ok, let`s comment this here, do you think that banning such games will reduce violence?

It's cute that they do it entirely without scientific basis.
Random Judge: "Omg, this seems to be very bad for our kids."
Random Judge 2: "Mmk lets ban it."
Random Judge: "Oh by the way, did you try these cookies, they're delicious!"

Hmmm. Thats actualy a complement to the games designers.
Think about it, these games were banned because they were addictive and populare.

Everquest, more addictive than cocaine, and far far cheaper.

You know, that's a great statement. For years and years parents have tried to find other ways to engage their kids so they stay away from drugs. Now that there is a great way to do it, they want to ban it!

Hmm.... wonder what the streetcorner market is like in Brazil -- seems like there might be a new opportunity for dealers there!
