    I heard about this a couple hours ago. I just hope that his comments about other AG's being against the R18 rating isn't true. This sin't a time to rest though. We have a had a break and everyone that supports the issue should increase the community awareness so that the motion is passed.

    In-directly yes. Although he didn't ban the game, his stance against the r18+ rating mean't it had to be censored.

    Congratulations Australia, it will take some work to undo a lot of the nonsense that went on but first steps and all that.

    I bet he wanted to see what everyone feels about R18+, show it to the world, and then step down.

    What a DumbDonkey
