And more to come. This is an inevitably when your business model revolves around getting as many start ups money as you can in the hopes that some hit it big. It's inherent when you don't (and can't) vet all the people and ideas; you'll eventually end up with "people of poor moral character" in your system.

And there's no excuse for it. I wonder how it will be dealt with. I bet everyone involved was anti-PIPA.
