So, I was planning on getting the game known as Skyrim, and I came upon this.
"WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Immediately Ban the Deadly Videogame Known as "SkyRim" for The Safety of America's Youths.
Whereas videogaming has proven to cause social, ethical and health problems in people of all ages,
Whereas sexual perversion and homosexuality are threatening to destroy the Christian foundations on which this nation was built,
Whereas a new video game has just been created that far exceeds any others in the psychological and spiritual damage it does to teens,
We, the American people, today ask you,
1) To enact an immediate ban on the videogame known as "SkyRim" produced by Blizzard Entertainment.
2) To seize and destroy all copies already in public hands and erase its presence on the internet.
3) To prosecute the players of "SkyRim" to the fullest extent of the law.
4) To create a national database of videogame avatars and "screen names" so that teenagers can be better monitored."
It was on the white house website, where anyone can create a petition.
I have seen that it needs 25,000 signatures for the ban, and so far it already has 546 and counting.
I honestly think this is the work of a troll, but if people take it too seriously and 25,000 signatures are reached, there may be no choice but for the government to ban Skyrim.
I don't think it will reach that many, but... you never know.
Do you think it will be banned?
Do you think it is possibly an internet troll, trying desperately to cause trouble?
I would like to know what some of your thoughts are.
