It's no mystery that big companies's paid advocacies penetrate every popular website today. Youtube and AppStore are full of fake view/download counts and paid comments, either negative or positive. It's only the matter of whether you want to delude yourself or not.

I acknowlegde SC2013 has tons of incurable flaws, but this scandal doesn't add to the list.
