And the overall violent crime rate is at a 30 year low, despite those darned mind-warping videogaming devices. </crotchety sarcasm>

But look at those property crimes!

Is that game good. I am surprised Jack Thompson hasn't complained about it.

Jack Thompson is too busy making things up about games. He doesn't have time to ridicule games that have at least something worth ridiculing! He's gotta make up Sims 2 porn. He's a very busy man.

Side note, I just emailed him asking for a schedule of appearances so I can watch him make a fool of himself. I will post it later.

On the official Sims website there must be a glitch that shows one Sim naked. It is just like the report. Manican style.

If they act so strongly against that remove blur cheat they might as well burn every Barbie in existence. Children have no more been scarred for life because of a Sims bug than a Barbie Doll.

(A 'naked' Sim isn't 'correct', it just looks like a naked doll)
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.
