The biggest change is the ability to broadcast by almost anyone. I can think of at least three different people I knew in high school who committed suicide before completing grade 12. @ 400 students. I doubt if more than a handful of people outside of our small community ever heard about any of them. Today? The whole Country along with other parts of the world hear all about it.
"3. further i CAN NOT get service from ANYONE ELSE, because whenever i call ANYONE, they tell me they have 'non-compete' agreements with my shit ISP..." Tell them: No problem! I will pay you $1/m more than I am paying now.
Then have them explain how Ferrari and Dodge Ram trucks are competing for sales.
"An additional factor thrown into the mix was a post-play "game" which gave players the option to blast losing players with a loud noise through their headphones. (There was actually no one on the receiving end of the blasts, which is kind of a shame…) Violent game players were much more prone to do this..."
No one gets blasted but one is more prone to do so than another? OK.
The study I conducted concluded that anyone trying to take something from someone else, or limiting their use of that something, is a serious threat to society and is much more likely to shoot someone. No one was shot during the study nor were any guns present, but they had access to guns and they are more prone to going and getting one.
