    I think this guy is an idiot. He's trying to get things censored in the Sims, and then he complains about being censored when he's banned for breaking the rules.

    People should accept the fact that video games are games; they are not real life.

    Here's the problem as I see it... I agree 100% with his sentiment, virtual anarchy is no more desirable than the real thing. However, it is just a game. With real life, you're kinda stuck. If things are bad where you are, it's a real ordeal to change things, or leave. In a game, you have that wonderful option of not playing it. I think he has the right to complain, and as long as his complaining is not interfering with other players (in as much as the other players have to choose to listen to it/read it) then I think he should be free to whine. But he also desperately needs to get a life.

    Yes, he does need to get a life. But it said in the article he was banned for breaking the rules.
