    Lets spend lots of money teaching about stuff that effects less than 2% of the population instead of teaching stuff like stay away from drugs, sex, and violence which they removed from the schools and effect a lot more people in much more negative ways.  But hey it is for the kids and not the fact that people on this board are just looking for a way to stop loot boxes and have jumped on the gambling bandwagon to achieve that goal.....
    You do realize that DARE and other anti-drug programs in schools were ineffective and may have actually contributed to increased drug use.

    Also, abstinence only sex education is incredibly ineffective and only leads to an ignorance of safe sex practices and the potential consequences of not practicing these.

    But gambling education will save the day????  Never learn from history do we?  Why not just show kids how adults burn tax dollars by making a fire and just throw it in.
    Which is why I'm not advocating for gambling education? The only people advocating for consumer-end responsibilities are the "free market solves everything" thralls.

    It is my opinion that a properly regulated capitalism is the only effective economic system. The free market is a powerful tool, but it is not a flawless system and requires occassional stipulations. When corporations overstep their boundaries and harm either the consumer, the worker, the environment, or the very competition that keeps the free market in place, government intervention is necessary. Self-regulation is possible, but if it proves insufficient, goverment intervention becomes the only viable solution.


    The problem lies in the fact that government officals are often on the payroll of the very corporations they are trying to regulate.

    So in the end the its all about the money and corporations have lots of it to make sure the government regulations arent too harsh on them.

    So people vote to elect govt officials to represent them, but corporations instead pay them off to represent them instead.

    Case in point - net neutrality repeal - paid by the ISPs - it surely isnt in the best interest of the american population.

  • PUBG Team Apologizes for Inappropriate Female Model on Test Server - PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds -



    It's tasteless and pointless. Would you like your character's idle animation to include pulling your underwear out of your crack? As for equating violence with sexuality, do you really want to go down that path? Blurring the two can get pretty dark. Jack the Ripper RPG anyone? It's not a good argument let's not go there.




    Yes please - give me anti-wedgie animation.

    Heck Vanilla EQ1 trolls and ogres had the scratchy butt animations and it was awesome

    I forgot to mention Archeage, could have been the perfect mmorpg for me but as we all know they ruined it and now i wouldnt even give it a chance really. There is noone playing it and we can likly expect them to make even more controversial decisions in the future so why bother.

    Archeage has some pretty big stuff coming up for next year. Might want to check it out after 4.0 launch later this month.
