I guess you really can't trust the minimum wage earning part time clerk at Gamestop to do his/her job of properly reformatting the game systems internal storage device on the pre-owned devices.

Yeah, every time this kind of thing comes up, I wish we had more information. Nudity? No big deal. Sex? I wouldn't especially worry about. But there's some pretty warped porn out there that I would worry about a kid seeing.

Also, I weep for the past participle.

Vern: You know, if these parents wouldn't be cheapskates and pay for a new console as opposed to a refurbished one, this wouldn't be an issue.And seriously, if you shop at Gamestop, used/refurbished is only $10 maybe $20 less than a new console. If it's a game, I've seen used copies of games at $2 or less than new copies. It's not worth it to buy used from Gamestop unless you're talking games that are 5 or 10 years old, that's when they might start marking them down. Otherwise, pony up the few extra dollars, get a new copy that supports the developer(Or the publisher), and avoid having to deal with a copy that someone dropped into a pile of Doritos, put it in the console, and poured a few more Doritos on it before closing the tray.


I laugh when I see their used new releases marked down to $54.99 from $59.99. Wow, for saving $5 bucks, I might not get a scratched disc, and I now have to pay for any online passes or promotional content that was provided free with a new copy?

WHAT A DEAL!

andyfromfl: There are a lot of people on here that fall into the same trap a lot of atheists (not agnostics) do- I don't like how the Bible says God is, so he can't be real.
If he wants to say violence is OK and nudity isn't, you've got no moral authority to judge. Don't pretend you have any more idea of what's going on than I do.


There are a lot of people here who think religion = morals.

Fact is, whether or not morals are fabricated by may, they can be justified or denigrated by employing intellectual reason.

There is nothing inherently wrong with nudity, unless, you know, it's cold out, or it's an issue of being sanitary, or modest in the interest of not being distracting.

Violence, on the other hand, is offensive, literally. It's placing one individual over another. Sure, there are a lot of mitigating factors(IE self defense, defending the weak) that may legitimize it, but as a vague notion that you put forth, violence is pretty cut and dry "wrong". It's sort of the reason we have laws against it for the most part.

So was the porn any good at least?

In any case, you'd think Gamestop would've started formatting the systems & sd cards that come in after the 1st time.

" I don't like how the Bible says God is, so he can't be real. " Nope. Not that. More of- this is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Who could possibly believe so much absurdity. And not only that, but the morals it tries to convey are either basic common sense or quite silly, and often contradictory.

Enormous-Schwanstucker: Mystery Vortex: There's a big difference between nudity and pornography.

My kid seeing an anatomical reference photo? Totally ok. Even encouraged.

My kid seeing Max Hardcore pounding a crying girl in the mouth? Not ok.

This, all of this. But I suspect those without children will never understand the difference.

Of course, the dad is a cheap bastard for not buying his kid a brand new DS so it's his fault and he shall be shamed for it.


Agreed.

It also depends a lot on what the images were. 'Porn' is pretty vague. I wouldn't have too much trouble explaining to my 11 y/o why those people are naked and swinging from a chandelier. We've already had the basic sex talk, so expanding on it wouldn't be too terrible.

Trying to explain it to my 6 y/o, however, would be a different story.

Four Horsemen of the Domestic Dispute: Coco LaFemme: What is with this country's puritanical obsession with sex?  "ZOMG A TITTY!!" For fark's sake, dude.  I'd rather see some guy's wang on the news accidentally than see heaps of bloody dead bodies.

Perhaps it was male on male? What if it was horse on chick? We don't know. Certainly you wouldn't want your pre-pubescent daughter witnessing two guys doing a rumple still skin would ya?

/don't buy "re-furbished" electronics without checking the contents first.


I don't have children, but if I did, no I wouldn't want them seeing pornography.  That being said, I wouldn't act like it was the end of the farking world, either.  I'd tell them it was grown-up stuff, and when they were older, I would explain to them more what it was.  The more mysterious and spooky you make something to a child, the more interested in it they become.  Also, the more you act like it's a big deal and ZOMG what will the neighbors say, the more they're going to want to know what it is.  If you don't react to it like it's a hydrogen bomb, they're not going to give a damn and move on to something else.  Kids aren't known for their impressive attention spans.


Horse-on-chick is bestiality and illegal, anyway.  If I bought a refurbished electronic that had illegal material on it, I'd be more concerned with alerting authorities then what to tell my kid if they inadvertently caught a glimpse of it.  It would be the same if it was child porn.

I have a few friends from Europe and they were shocked at the violence on TV here. They were doubly shocked at how draconian we are with anything sex related.

A few years ago I bought a USB key from "The Source by Circuit City" (I still think of it as Radio Shack though). Turns out what I bought was a returned key, repackaged. There was something on it - a movie.

A Disney movie. Not porn. I felt so ripped off.

Great Janitor: I guess you really can't trust the minimum wage earning part time clerk at Gamestop to do his/her job of properly reformatting the game systems internal storage device on the pre-owned devices.


Worked at Gamestop when I was younger; it's as bad as everyone says it is.

All those things we're supposed to be doing, like checking systems for operability/user uploaded content? Checking discs (at more than a cursory level) for flaws or scratches, making sure the accessories bundled with a refurb system actually function? Yeah, we didn't do any of that, but not out of laziness- management at all levels thinks there are better things to do with your time, like update price tags (on 10,000 items! Yay!), hang up/put up this week's marketing crap from whatever publisher paid to put a lifesize cardboard main character in our store, inventory, inventory, inventory, vacuum the carpet, wash the windows, or call every single person on the Halo 3 preorder list and inform them we're having a midnight launch. (I called my boss out on this one and simply said I wasn't going to do it, unless I was getting paid to do that and only that during a workday. When I explained that calling 385 people will take the better part of a week, she realized how stupid it was as well.)

Problems with ANYTHING at Gamestop are handled with a "we'll cross that bridge when we get there" attitude by ALL levels of management.

I was amused at the people who would buy games during the "buy one get one" sale, and come in the next day to return the game that they got for free for cash or store credit. The exchanges would frequently go like this:

"I wanna return this game I got yesterday."
"Ok, not a problem. Did you want a different copy?"
"No, I want my money back."
"Well, it says right here on your receipt that you paid nothing for this game; I can give you what you paid for it."
"No, the game cost $20, I want my $20. The price sticker says $20."
"Well, you bought it during the promotion, so it actually cost you nothing. It says that right here on the receipt. I'm happy to give you what you paid for it, but I'd advise against that, because then you'll be giving the game away for nothing."

Although i agree that for a 9 year old such content is still too mature, certainly I would not have raised a shaitstorm like this guy did, I would have erased the pics. Someone obviously had it before. Duh, it was refurbished. Call me a prude but that's my stance. It would be interesting to hear other opinions as to what age IS appropriate, and why. I know, it really depends on multiple factors such as maturity of the child AND parents, etc, but for me I'm thinking 15 ish? thoughts?

Via Infinito: Weaver95: but we can still see all kinds of violence, right?  because that's what's really important here.

I think this backwards view stems from a biblical perspective. Burning animal flesh is a sweet smell unto the Lord. Not turning your head away from your dad's nakedness is a crime punishable by curse. Naked is shameful, blah blah. Oh but dashing pregnant women on the rocks because they're heathens? Oh yeah. The Lord likes that shiat. Violence good. Naked bad.


I'd assume,then that if i went to a country without our backward biblical views, like Iran or China or India, I would see plenty of sex on TV and not too much violence?

Or would I see, as I think I would, that TV is pretty much the same sex-violence-wise all around the world, regardless of religion?

Probably not, but mine sure as hell didn't.  I'd have gouged out my own eyes with a screwdriver.  My parents chose to talk to my sister and I about sex, nudity, all that stuff when we were older, as opposed to walking around starkers.  I know that not all nudity is sexual (see: Classical art), and I love my parents, but no.  Just keep your farking clothes on when I'm around.

Refurbished electronics should always be checked for the reasons stated in the article and this thread. Dad's at fault for not practicing due diligence. My only personal experience with this was I had to return a cell phone to my ex-inlaws when I filed for divorce (we were on a family plan, so the phone was legally theirs). But. I was smart enough to take my phone in, have it wiped and afterwards checked to ensure it was back on the setup screen with no data, photos, texts, etc., stored in the phone before returning it. .

Other countries, England specifically, show plenty of actual tits on free TV(albeit later in the evening). As in topless, no clothing, maybe full frontal IIRC, but not graphic nudity(splayed genitals and such). And not national geographic "nude" either...
Of course, it's not always sexualised/eroticized, just tits, glorious tits.

Ukraine
Britain in general and much of Europe
Turkey
Japan(after midnight)
Canada maybe(from what I've read)

This just from a quick google. US is pretty much part of a minority when it comes to nudity.

Instead of imagining what you'd see, you may want to actually look into it.

Also, religion is usually the common factor when it comes to limiting what others do that is not harmful to others, as it is the source of "morals" of that sort, of nudity being "bad", masturbation being bad, sex out of wedlock, etc. Morals like that don't just spring up from nothing. And yes, regardless of religion, most of the worlds major religions have F*d views on sexual freedoms, though differing. If you don't do it their way, you're doing it wrong.

Part of why the US is as strict as it is, is the sort of puritanical religions that sprouted here when the nation was just beginning. Mormon to Amish to devout Christianity. All differing, but also all very similar.

*Sigh*, how many times do I have to explain this, Farkers? You see, if a boy sees BOOBIES before the appropriate "developmental window" (which...for Boobies...we know to be marriage), then that boy will become all Sandy Hookieish.

However, the more young children see images of violence, the more they (and we as adults) become more sensitive to violence and therefore more apt to remain peaceful citizens, the more violence they can take in from the media.

Remember...YES to pistols, NO to dildos.

Meh, pony fandom is just as bad as watching any other child intended works, it reflects a child-like mindset-ability-affinity. You know, like we all have denigrated Micheal Jackson for.

People addicted to bright colors as children are.
People who's ability is limited to the short and quick events that need little to no attention span.
People find attraction in puerile stories that need little functioning intellectual ability

The show as a whole is manufactured for people of those "qualities", and they eat it up wholesale. Man-children, no better than ICP asking how magnets work and then cursing those that offer education on the topic. Vehemently defending their infatuation of child-like wonder against those who find it distasteful.

In fact, Ponies are the new ICP. ICP tried to teach acceptance and tolerance(social outcasts all banding together to enjoy life), it is a big part of their culture. Don't judge. Only it's stylized cute, instead of stylized clowns with axes and decapitations. ICP washed of all the make-up and imagery and results in pure inanity.
