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.

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.

Its not about political correctness, its about Justice. I'm trying to keep my reply polite as this is a polite message board. But, if you think that's in any way acceptable, you must be fairly ignorant of sexual assault.

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