The Greek government has OUTLAWED the use of electronic video games. I can't even begin to say how stupid and reactive this is, but it doesn't matter because it is simply just wrong. Petition http://www.petitiononline.com/comp5932/petition.html News.com story http://news.com.com/2100-1040-956357.html The Greek government introduced the law in an attempt to prevent illegal gambling. According to a report in the Greek newspaper Kathimerini, Greek police will be responsible for catching offenders, who will face fines of 5,000 to 75,000 euros (about $4,980 to $74,650) and imprisonment of one to 12 months. "The blanket ban was decided in February after the government admitted it was incapable of distinguishing innocuous video games from illegal gambling machines," the report said The Greek government is worried that people are losing their money to online gambling. God forbid the good people of Greece lose their hard earned money to gambling, that money could be much better spent lining the pockets of Greek politicians who pass asinine laws.
