Games There's fail, there's epic fail, and then there's Sony. You may've thought it wasn't possible, but Sony has just outdone itself on the fail scale, forcing us to add yet another notch. During the congressional testimony this morning, Dr Gene Spafford of Purdue University revealed just how badly Sony managed its Playstation Network servers. It's... Bad.

Not to mention just how offensive that analogy is, in general. Not Cool.

Maybe remove the entire line completely, instead of just striking it out?

Insinuating women (or a man wearing a skirt) and rape might be a sensitive topic for some people.

I concur. Even striked out and association with criminal behavior removed it still perpetuates the "she was asking for it" myth.

What's to say it wasn't some burly football player hiking his skirt, batting his eyes and making pouty lips?

I don't understand what you're insinuating. Dutch people are just awesome and really, really friendly. I mean, every time I walk this beautifully-named street called red lights or something people are always greeting me so nicely, and some even wish to offer me money too.
