Brazil Bans Counter-Strike, EverQuest

This might not be a bad idea considering the real-life murder related to Lineage II we wrote about earlier, but still ...

The South American nation famous for its ability to create great soccer players, attractive swimsuit models and land that used to be rainforests has brought the banhammer down upon two of the world's most popular online games. Both Counter-Strike and EverQuest, each now nine-years old, were said to promote "the subversion of public order, were an attack against the democratic state and the law and against public security" by the judge enacting the ban.

Here's a question: why these two?  Did Sony and Valve not grease the wheels enough?  After all there are still plenty of violent games for sale in Brazil, right?
