What do you get when you cross an Internet full of porn with a new European-based domain extension? If you said "kinky pages like www.pe.eu" you would not only be wrong, you would be deeply disturbed. The answer is actually that you get the most applications for one domain name over all others. Something tells me, though, that the URL I mentioned earlier isn't that far-fetched.

If you like video games, and you hate people telling you how to raise your kids, or what's best for you, perhaps the following might interest you. Hell, even if you don't like video games but find yourself agreeing with one of the other two options, this might interest you. An organization called National Institute on Media and the Family (NIMF) took it upon themselves to grade the effectiveness of the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), who is responsible for the ratings you see on video games nowadays. You can see the results of that here. Read that first, and see if you form an opinion.

Then, go check out ESRB's response to their failing grade, where they give the NIMF their own report card. It's not pretty. ESRB basically hands them their asses, served with a side salad.

While I enjoy seeing an organization like that, who tries to take away the parent's job of parenting, being so deliciously rebutted, there's another reason I wanted to post it. Too often, some right-wing loony with a working knowledge of the idea that the louder you speak, the more you get noticed, regardless of how much validity there is in what you say, makes up garbage and is never called on it publicly. That's why I applaud the ESRB for not lying down, and I hope it sets an example for other groups that are harassed for doing their job. It's also why I ask anyone who might have an outlet for it to repost, whether it be on a video games forum, or your own blog, this particular story. I think it needs to be seen.
