That reminds me, having recently watched the episode (like, a few minutes ago :P) i never knew they liked hitler? :O

And also, i already knew that they where on the far side of the right-wing, but to go to that extent... Reminds me of this other guy, think he was called Jack Thompson. Was anti-video games at all. Went overboard with it, totally. Morons.

FWIW, I could actually see them doing something like germany and limiting gore. Wikipedia called the UK a 'War Torn Police State' or at least that's how it'll treat it with the new snooper charter law. They'll be encrypting everything (Wiki)

He does mean pre WW2, FYI

Ah, the Daily Mail. Informed and unbiased as usual  ;D The people there are truly horrible people, judging by some of the stuff they write. How this paper is so popular always baffles me.

I like to balance out the Daily Mail - hear something about them? Read the Independent. Vehemently right-wing column? Listen to liberal Redditors for a few minutes. Pretty much everyone I know regards the Daily Fail as a joke.

I know nothing about the Daily mail, but from what I've seen. I like them.

Don't ever say that. DO some investigation, because the daily mail is not something you want to like

Two things - Upgradecap, aren't you Swedish? It says you're in Sweden on your profile, so if so, why are you so bothered about the Daily Mail?

Also, not everyone's ridiculously liberal - there are plenty of conservative, right wing people all around, and while I don't agree with them, they have the right to an opinion, whether it involves the Mail or not.

Also, please don't let this turn into an Internet argument ._.

The Daily Mail is a newspaper. Only it's like the Fox News of newspapers.

Firstly, because, obviously, i am ridiculously national and don't care about any part of the world other than my own country.

Secondly, because when a newspaper so blatantly harasses and blames games for the death of someone it catches my attention. And i have the right to care. Not saying that this should be turned into an internet argument or anything, but why would you care if i care about it or not? I have the right to do so, and especially when it concerns me to such an degree. :P

It's easy to get bothered by something like this by reading or listening to meta stories regarding the topic. My suggestion would be to not do it, because it biases your opinion.

Like the topic of this thread. You sent a whole bunch of people in, UN-primed, to a website and expected the opinions that formed about that website to be obvious and inevitable. That's the problem.

I saw that website and I was REALLY impressed. An objective exposé on the insane thinking that goes behind the search for carcinogens. All you saw was the product of minds so stupid they couldn't even see the obvious contradictions they had created. You came in biased. The possibility that those obvious contradictions might be the point never even crossed your mind.

This is the exact same criticism people have of Fox News. They are biased.

Not. cool. man. I still love you though.

Haha, that's great then :)


Ok, i do admit i was a little biased when i entered this conversation, but that still doesn't hide the truth. I mean, they are right-winged, which is clearly seen in the article someone else posted here, lemme see if i can find it...

Ah, here it is:

Now, that's utterly, purely, detrimentally stupid.
