Microsoft employees have infested the planet and pretend that their
employer's aggressive behaviour can simply be ignored.

You can imagine how upset I am when conferences are organised and chaired by
Microsoft employyes that happen to do research, too. I need to communicate
with Microsoft employees to discuss a process of peer review. Must I also
forge my headers and disable PGP? It's a very uncomforting thought.

Best wishes,
