Now ask yourself, was it a +5 Sledgehammer he used for the murder?

Thats the biggest crock of close minded B.S. that I ever heard. I've been playing D&D for about 30yrs and I completely normal.
Unless I'm missing sarcasm on your part, you cannot possibly be normal if you have been playing D&D for about 30 years. That would be the definition of abnormal.

Players of D&D need to unite to overturn this! The idea of this being a game that promotes violence in high school students was repeatedly suggested to be an incorrect assumption in studies during the 90s! I would think that video games would be much worse. D&D enforces mathematical skills, social networking, working together for common goals with races and people one would not normally bond with. It provides an outlet for aggression that does not involve coming to blows of any kind. It is a math and language game that does not involve live action of any kind. Watching the news is more capable of creating violent situations!

I for one am interested in having this appealed.
