You built a fine machine, out of a Hot Tub? Twitch streamer Amouranth did, and now the company is caught trying to deal with both enterprising streamers and concerned advertisers.

But will tags really solve the issue? Is there an issue needing solving? And what about all the other tags the company introduced on the same day?

Jet Set Radio isn't the only place with interesting tags...in Virtual Legality.
