  - Missed the point  Lex   Mar-04-07 05:47 PM   #11 
  - No I didn't.  BlooInBloo   Mar-04-07 05:47 PM   #14 
     - Did the OP suggest such a law? Of course not.  Lex   Mar-04-07 05:50 PM   #16 
        - Duh. I did.  BlooInBloo   Mar-04-07 05:51 PM   #19 
           - Exactly. Which is where you missed the point.  Lex   Mar-04-07 05:53 PM   #22 
              - No I didn't.  BlooInBloo   Mar-04-07 06:03 PM   #32

  - Really?  BlooInBloo   Mar-04-07 06:06 PM   #35 
     - Don't you think it would be completely unrealistic to enforce a law??  Shine   Mar-04-07 06:22 PM   #44 
        - Hm. I never thought of that.  BlooInBloo   Mar-04-07 06:23 PM   #45

     - No, The Descent was horrifically violent.  seawolf   Mar-04-07 07:09 PM   #78

        - ratings aren't laws, though...  progdonkey   Mar-04-07 07:22 PM   #86

              - and the time to go through the whole petition thing could be put to better use...  progdonkey   Mar-04-07 09:22 PM   #100
