The person who made said decision is a good friend of mine (cc'ed).
You're so wrong on so many levels I don't know where to start. Surely
informed debate has two sides? Surely if we censor Microsoft we sink to

their own decisions?
I'm quite disappointed. You've demonstrated why zealots need to be
contained for open source to succeed.
