    Sometimes I just cannot believe Micro$oft.
    How long are people going to tolerate the blatant illegal practices of M$?
    Will all courts and Prosecuting Attorneys continue to be bought out?
    This really gets under my skin! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    its an american thing we bully people or we take what we want good us of a

    i know its harsh but its true who ever has the money has the power and the legal system in there pocket lol

    but time and time i hear that politics dont mix or arnt for this bord

    which i truely understand it gets ugly real fast but the truth is politic has everything to do with the internet security and software developers leaveing the little man out in the cold

    the sad part is the internet and free source was meant for all and not meant to be ruled by any one class or goverment

    any body remember the internet as just buliten bords

    now greedy companys and govermentas police fbi and big time companys rule it all

    strange part is it was more meant for freedom of electronic information a whole free unepressed digital world

    if i could go back in time id buy the patent on the internet and kick holly wood out and the goverment lol

    and isp providers he he he

    only one aloud is phone company but at only resoanable rates or there licence get pulled mawhaaaaaaaaa id rule it all with an iron spoon

    goverment would only be able to use lan lol

    Mr Blaze,

    Partly true. Politics as such are a non-item on this board. In case political actions have a direct impact on security and/or privacy, we don't have any prob. That said: it's a thin line we're talking about here. Our team will decide wether or not a post coming with "politics" is acceptable - or not ;).

    regards.

    paul

    That pretty much says it all right there. People are growing more and more disgusted with Microsoft and looking for alternatives. Obviously they want to prevent that where possible.

    yeah paul your right and i do understand

    but i think this is one of those that effects security and a brod range of people and topic's with concern to consumer rights

    i rember a time when consumers where cateret to by companys

    also rember a time when they respected consumer privacy but lately it seems like there not

    only some people like galvin wayne and jason do

    where the consumers privacy is just as important as the service to provide good software.

    thats just my small opnione may not be politicaly correct but it just how i feel

    microsoft with new long horn on the rise wants to be the only game in towen
