Yeah happens a lot. The number of people complaining about 'bugs' in the pirated version of some games I've help moderate massively outnumbered other bugs - I mean, really swamped the forums, even after we put up stickies explaining that X symptom was only caused by using an illegal version of the game and discussion of it was not permitted.

It also has a real cost on the support side of things.
