You find a scroll of Genocide titled "Pol Pot"

Amidst the news that Brian Eno is producing procedural music for Spore, I find myself a little worried.

When are we going to get our first procedural equivalent to the hot coffee mod? All it will take is a randomly generated in-game nipple or instrument which sounds like one of six banned words, and one offended parent, teenager (or younger) to record it.

How is the ESRB supposed to review content that hasn't been generated yet, and potentially may never be?

The title, for this article, by the way, comes from a mis-remembered discussion about inappropriate scroll titles. I thought this had been actually generated in game in Angband, but it appears that it wasn't.
