    Pretty cool, and I was glad to see it. But the rankings were a sham for one reason: Sporcle isn't a top 5 Games website??

    Congrats guys, some well deserved recognition.

    I have to agree with Nate @1, how does Sporcle not make the games list? Heck, Sporcle should be top 5 in the education list too.
