MS Passport – let the games begin
It's a right meridianum spectaculum, let me tell you
In the gladatorial arena that is the Vulture Central Mailbag, there's nothing that the crowd like better than a bit of one-on-one combat to the death. This lunchtime's entertainment features retarius John Lettice, armed with trident and net, versus secutorAdam Alexander:
The article was either written based on seriously inadequate research, or the author purposely included only the most shocking information in order to write a biased anti-Microsoft editorial. This article was not presented as an editorial but as a news story. Based on this, I think it would be prudent for you to post a correction on your web site. I would be interested in hearing your response.
This impudence provoked John to strike back thus:
Provoking Mr Alexander to escalate the conflict with:
I may stand corrected. Please send me any information you have concerning MS's hijacking of personal information sent over its network(s), and I will announce my defeat.
Judging from the intelligence level of the postings and email I have seen from your outfit, I may need to clarify that the above is a rhetorical request.
I sent this email under the impression that I was dealing with a reputable journalistic outfit. That was obviously my mistake. You may carry on in your non-journalistic endeavors.
Thanks very much, we will - morituri te salutant!
