    I hope someone sues the living **** out of Microsoft for this, and the judge that approved this. Totally ruined my day, and the day of millions of people around the world, to take down a few subdomains. Lunatics.

    I'm gobsmacked how this is even legal, it's like nuking a city of millions because a few people were miscreants. Most of the comments on Krebs' article says it all.

    I see nothing about compensation for websites that got hosed, just an apology from Microsoft.
