Okay so this really pisses me off more than it probably should.
3,580 users were banned from online gaming because they might use that as a means to molest children again. Although "the Georgia Review Board found, only 5% of those on their sex offender registry were “clearly dangerous” and "should be subject to tight restrictions and a lifetime of monitoring". Considering you can get on the list for urinating in public, or being a flasher I think this is a little over zealous. Now people who are going to use this service are just going to create accounts that aren't registered to the offenders list and do exactly as they have before. Why do we create ineffective laws that only appear to be helping.http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2012/04/thousands-of-new-york-sex-offenders-blocked-from-online-gaming-networks.ars?src=fbk
