    I'm not the one who originally posted. I just noticed you were asking for detail, and provided it.

    You have no understanding of my understanding about video games, as I have not commented on them, other than to provide the information that YOU asked for.

    •  Hold on, (0+ / 0-)

      I wasn't even the person you were replying to.  So I didn't ask for anything.

      Secondly, when you mentioned Adam Lanza and video games, this is what you posted:

      For hours on end, alone in his windowless basement den, Adam Lanza studied photos of guns and obliterated virtual victims in violent video games — until the virtual became a reality.
      THAT is not any kind of science, it's editorializing.  The quotes you posted below are the kind of thing I can get behind (and have no problem with).  
    •  So? (0+ / 0-)

      Whether you originally posted or just jumped in is irrelevant to whether you're saying that video games cause violence. Their (and my, and anyone's who's reading your posts) understanding of your understanding of video games is that you are making claims not proven scientifically. You're providing information, but it's not good information.
