Currently at the top of the Hot Games column I see Don't Drop the Soap. I note this game is tagged offensive, unfunny, crap, appalling, and satire. It's user rating is N/A, it's rank is N/A, because no one has rated it. It also has 0 plays. What makes Don't Drop the Soap "hot"?

Number of page views.

Since Don't Drop the Soap is all over the news, I'm guessing a lot of people are Googling it and ending up here.

What a thoroughly useless statistic. Is there a way I can get this column off my pages and see something like games with recent plays, reviews, ratings, image uploads, etc?

If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?

You can take it off here, but you can't replace it with anything else at this point:

Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14
