Is this refusal because of excessive sex? Or perhaps excessive violence? Maybe excessive drugs? No: it's something far more insidious and revolting.
Yes, Marc Ecko's Getting Up has been refused classification.
The Classification Review Board has determined, in a majority 3 to 2 decision, that the computer game Marc
Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure should be refused classification. The Review Board met on 6, 8, 13 and 14 February 2006 with the Convenor exercising a casting vote because the members were equally divided in opinion. [...] "Both the National Classification Code and the Guidelines for the Classification of Films and Computer Games state that a computer game will be refused classification if it includes or contains detailed instruction or promotion of matters of crime," Convenor, Maureen Shelley said. "It is the Classification Review Board’s determination that this game promotes the crime of graffiti."
This stuff is dangerous. It could warp minds irretrievably. Apparently, though, street racing is acceptable.
Of course, since the game isn't banned overseas, it can still be purchased via the internet.
EoR also wonders what effect this will have in reducing graffiti, particularly since this sort of stuff has been going on since the Paleolithic (found via Orac).
