Some of you may recall this game, and it's pretty good take on the Sisyphean task of working at a call center. Unfortunately, the government employers of the creator, David Gallant, weren't pleased with the game (which is kind of bullshit given how nonspecific the game is). Once they found out about the game, it appears he was fired or chose to resign. I know Gallant himself has posted on the GB forums when he first released the game, but I figured he may be a little busy right now, so I figured I would bring it to your attention. Here are some relevant links:

I know you guys hate Kotaku, but they give a pretty good assessment of the situation.
