Should a Christian play dungeons and dragons in Singapore?

Strangely enough, while I was looking up “Dungeons and Dragons” over Google, I found out that a site with the title of “Should a Christian play Dungeons and Dragons” was made unavaliable by the MDA. The same happened with another site named “Dark Dungeons”. I wonder what’s up with that. The funny thing is that the Dungeons and Dragons game line is readily avaliable over here in Borders and certain comic stores. Why then the avoidance to allow sites that talk about it with regards to religion? I’m quite sure that won’t prevent various groups from voicing their own concern about the hobby too.

    I don’t know how MDA screens their sites, but I know that some networks purchase a filtering service where websites which match certain keywords are automatically filtered out. So it’s not that a human being has necessarily reviewed the site and deemed it unsuitable for Singaporeans to read it :P but it could be that it was filtered by a computer logarithm that didn’t know any better! That’s what happened to mr brown, when his website was blocked by the Ministry of Education’s network some years ago. It was only after he alerted them that they unblocked it.

    Why don’t you email MDA and find out more?
