And referring to elected officials as 'head chimp' 'bumbling apes' and for forth is old as well. Just because the current president is black doesn't mean 'oh shit what we've meant for decades is suddenly something else!'. What's next, having to rename 'towel boys' the moment a Shikh gets the job?

Except... we do that. The majority of Americans have not bombed a foreign country, wiretapped, whatever. Cue the cries of that though, whenever almost anything regarding the United States comes up. Reverse that with Muslims and bombings. Humans just love to blame the whole for the actions of a subset of the whole, regardless of their ability to control them, or their relationship with them.

Anyway, it isn't like business don't do separations like that just to sever themselves from the actions of their's like bulkheads on a ship. Some accountability should slip up the chain regardless (though not laterally, sure).

Pretty much this. To be honest, even if someone were was living with and screw and getting supported by the person being reviewed, I wouldn't give a damn as long as was a fair review and it was disclosed. Like that Christian reviewer thing "A 8 for controls, a 7 for graphics, 8 for plot for a technical 8... and a -5 for sacrificing babies to Satan, for a weight score of 5.5"

Amusing how the journo sites suddenly were mostly 'all from promotion team' adverts when forced to disclose.

Not sure about SeeU, but I know a few years ago I got a DMCA from 'Original Creator' with regards to vocaloid videos.

They are part of Crypton Future Media though, the actual Vocaloid maker. Seems they have automated DMCA 'protect their customers from getting copied and denied their due profit'.
