    I feel a little bad for you Aussies that live in a little Utopian bubble where nothing bad ever happens, and it never rains. Then again, you guys chose to live under the big thumb of free speech suppressing government.

    Not just hosting. Imagine that your company has a product review forum where the users can put comments and rate their products that they bought. A SINGLE user posting a LINK to piratebay is sufficient to yank your ENTIRE website with no warning or recourse.

    Big +1 here. Blanket banning is just crazy... depriving so many older people of entertainment. Completely agree about the whole parenting thing. Parents complaining about violent videogames need to take more control of their kids (i.e. do their job as a parent).. don't try and get the government to do it for you.
