I know this has been discussed before
but I just saw this over on reddit
about a six page reply received from Michael Atkinson
(South Australian Attorney-General) and it's quite an interesting, if lengthy, read.
The poster makes note, "Be sure to check out the last paragraph, just make sure you don't have anything throwable in your hands." To quote,
I am next up for election in March, 2010. The State District I represent is called Croydon. I would welcome advocates of R.18+ computer games testing public acceptance of my policy by standing a candidate against me in that general election. I think you will find this issue has little traction with my constituents who are more concerned with real-life issues than home entertainment in imaginary worlds.
As funny as that closing statement is, it's also a bit sad to see that a law maker cares so little about a subject that he is solely responsible for. promoted forum item
