This post is here to just relay some news that came out very recently.
Michael Atkinson Resigns from the Front Bench
For those of you who don't know, Michael Atkinson has been the figurehead of the resistance against the introduction of a R18+ rating for Video Games in Australia. It's quite a strange thing to have an R18+ rating for movies, yet not for games . . . and we are very alone in the international community in this respect.
Here's hoping that Atkinson's replacement isn't equally ready to bow down to vocal conservative minorities as he was.
With the Federal Government (mainly Stephen Conroy) working towards mandatory censorship of the internet in Australia, we were starting to look like a totalitarian state that's trying to prevent its citizens from gaining proper access to digital media . . .
