So, what are the symptoms and why is this posted on GamePolitics? Because your video game system or gaming PC might be affected by contaminated drywall, which among other nastiness, corrodes wiring. Here's what the Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends to watch out for:

Please, nobody dare to discuss that China is known for poor quality products or someone may get offended, I remember the last thread that happened in.

The truth doesn't matter evidently, only the hypersensitive, feel-good, castrated, politically correct truth matters.

China does make good stuff sometimes. Everyone is so stereotypical because they think everything that's crap comes from china. True, they do have tons of products that aren't too good, but it's not like it's the ONLY place that does it.

Because of an outmoded business model (which, by the way, revolutionized the corporate world in the 40s, 50s, and 60s), a failed product base, and a crippling pension system.

I.E., saying that it is because of potentially lethal products is ridiculous, and indicates that you don't know of which you speak.

Actually, reading your comment again, I have to ask what an ailing American company has to do with a slough of unregulated and unapologetically crappy Chinese products. That is one of the most ridiculously stupid comments I have seen on OCN in a long, long time.

Some Chinese products ARE crappy (lead in the paint of children's toys, toxic dry wall, poisons in animal feed, etc.). When people say this they aren't passing judgment on Chinese society or culture, and there is no reason to get so defensive about it.

My Dad's Ford car is fine. Just needs more maintenance than it used to (But it's getting pretty old, so that's expected)

My cousin's Nissan on the other hand...that thing won't pass AirCare anymore no matter how many times she tries to fix it.

I'm Chinese, and I avoid Made in Chine products like the plague. That's how bad it is.

In China, they make fake chemical eggs: http://www.danwei.org/internet/beware_of_fake_eggs.php

Sure, not ALL China products are bad (that's actually empirically impossible to prove), but the fact that relative to other countries, they churn out a disproportional amount of bad eggs (no pun intended) does tell you that statistically, China products have a higher chance of being duds.

Pretty much everything is made in china
Not all Chinese stuff is bad
More than half the stuff in your computer is from China

Poisonous stuff that isn't supposed to be poisonous however, is just ridiculously immoral and makes me sick.
(No pun intended)
