What's with Tim's snipping? What is s/he trying to hide? It's not the first
time that I see this. Also mind:
"It also was strange to see just how many resources are aligned
against me when I write a story about Microsoft."
The Troll also missed the main point, which is the fast that Microsoft
eavesdrops on people and then posts snitches to create smear campaigns. I have
links to show this too.
My message was posted in response to that attack on "7". Nessunu, HPT,
GreyCloud and other examples come to mind, so there might be something at work
behind the scenes.
