Did it occur to you that maybe he was referring to some other instance of censorship, not necessarily involving the internet?

It just seems so natural it's like he isn't even doing it on purpose... I just have a hard time accepting that people can actually be that stupid unintentionally.
Meh... I guess it comes with the territory though.
Anyway, forgive me for having to speak up about it.
I should know better than that by now with that guy.

I know of a couple of similar stories of censorship. Like I was watching how they made the album by The Doors and the story goes like the producer on the Ed Sullivan show didn't want Jim Morrison to say "Baby we can't much higher" He wanted Jim to sing "Baby we can't get much better you dig." But Jim Morrison sang it anyway, much ot the chagrin of the Ed Sullivan Show producer. And then after the show the producer yelled at The Doors saying they would never ever do the Ed Sullivan show again and then Jim Morrison retorted "Hey Man, I just did the Ed Sullivan Show."

Dude... go back and read the post he wrote.
Sit a long long time and realize exactly what it says and what it refers to. You're barking up a tree that doesn't even exist, in this scenario.


Edit:
Sorry, let me change that to: You're barking up the wrong tree...
Because god knows you'd fuck up that interpretation as well.

What do you mean by "tree"? In the 80s they didn't even have trees like we have today.

And... and technically, to bark up the wrong tree would simply mean to be barking up a tree that exists in our current time, so since the situation started in the 80's, the tree would not have been in the same format, and since the arithmetic of nature dictates that trees do not grow forward in time but that time grows around the vertical nature of trees, then you are obviously wrong.

Thanks,
Neapolitan.
P.S... I used a spell checker.

Edit:
And a grammar coach.

Now when you say "barking" do mean "bark" like a dog or "bark" like what's on a tree?

And I did read his post a couple of times.

Didn't you ever wonder if "barking" was A.) a dog barking up a tree or B.) someone putting the wrong bark on tree? Like putting the bark of a Maple tree on a Birch tree? Like maybe someone in props dept. in Hollywood. Don't tell me you don't think about those things??

This is true, but what usually happens is that the games get toned down so that they can fit the 15+ rating.

Left 4 Dead is an example of this. In the US it was released as 18+, however when it came to Australia a lot of the gore was cut out so that it could be sold as 15+. Left 4 Dead 2 didn't even make it into the 15+ rating so you can't purchase it at all in Australia.

If R18+ ratings for games was introduced to Australia, 1) Violent games would not be streamed into the 15+ category so younger gamers wouldn't be viewing unappropriated material and 2) More games would be available in Australia and they wouldn't have to be modified or toned down.
