Security for virtualized datacentres

It's absolutely typical. You streamline your backhanders and bungs department, and still there's confusion. Steve Rodway needs clarification:

Was just wondering if there is any element of truth in the page Register Tariff 2001 'cause it strikes me, for a company like Microsoft, £2,500 would be well worth it for removal of any story from your site. I'm still seeing stories that are not exactly Microsoft-favourable, so I'm guessing they must not have paid for the Platinum service.

Then there's Matt Clark, who's evidently having trouble with his eyes:

That's not a tariff, it's perfectly ordinary satire. Give us the fucking prices at least. How else are we supposed to be able to budget sensibly?

Ho hum.
