I learnt via [URL=http://www.joystiq.com/2007/04/17/times-online-offers-wii-warm-ups-before-gaming/]Joystiq[/URL] and [URL=http://kotaku.com/gaming/nintendo/morons-weigh-in-on-why-wii-activity-is-bad-for-you-253052.php]Kotaku[/URL] that [I]The Times[/I] wrote [URL=http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/tech_and_web/article1661085.ece]a crappy and sensationnalistic article[/URL] about the Wii. I read it, and... oh boy, it brought me back in the late 80's-early 90's, with all the moral panic about epillepsy, Oprah Winfrey's "Nintendo Zombies", NCTV's claims that 85% of NES games were "extremely violent", yada, yada...

In France, we have the [I]"règle des trois L"[/I], the "three 'L' rule". This rule says [I]"on Lèche, on Lâche, on Lynche"[/I]. Translation : first, I Lick, then I Leave, and finally I Lynch. It's a common rule in mainstream media about a lot of topics, such as politics and politicians who are once their hero before becoming a pariah. I guess that some in the mainstream media were tired to "lick" the Wii, so they decided to "leave" it.
