The Laughing Arsehole

Mate, you've shifted the goalposts so many times I strongly suspect you've lost track of them entirely.WhiteNachos said:You remind me of this person I saw who tried to argue that abortion was just as bad as birth control or pulling out because they both prevent babies from being formed.Zhukov said:Oh me, oh my. Once again, those hairs be splitting before the merciless precision of your razor sharp mind.
Tell me, if someone changes what they make or cease making it, does that not prevent people from seeing that which they otherwise would have made? Methinks this particular hair is getting mighty thin.
Look I shouldn't have said it's like asking them to change the game they already made, that is censorship, but asking them to not make another GTA game? That's not censorship by any stretch, and I REALLY hope I don't have to explain the difference between that and trying to censor existing content.
So now you're saying that it's only censorship if existing materials are altered or suppressed, but not if the production of future material is targeted.
So... if a government were to shut down a political newspaper that was critical of them, but didn't bother erasing the material that had already been published, that wouldn't be censorship?
Nah. But for a fee I would happily write something that at least implied that was the case.Zhukov said:So you think the game actually does encourage violence against women and all that jazz?WhiteNachos said:It's a rather poorly worded petition if you ask me. Hell, for a nominal fee I would have happily written them a better one that made the game seem just as bad if not worse without dealing in falsehoods and sketchy understandings of game mechanics.
