MOST HUMBLING MOMENT: Getting SG sued by Nintendo. :)
One seriously has to wonder how stuff like this happens in the first place.

As much as I like the idea of the job of a 'porn scout' existing, it's much more likely that this was in fact the same phenomenon as with the old story about Open-/Microsoft Office and the BSA: An automated spider looking for keywords and threats being sent out without human re-checking first.
