Internet Security Threat Report 2014

FoTW God alone knows, we at El Reg are used to taking a bit of stick, but it's come to something when the nutters crawl out of the woodwork before we've even had a chance to offend.

Take the recent Barnes & Noble/Microsoft outrage. Naturally, our top people were instantly on the job, and they also managed to find time to cover the most earth-shattering piece of news until Osama bin Laden was dumped over the side of a US aircraft carrier.

However, what we have here is our first preflame, delivered to Vulture Central before Rik Myslewski even had a chance to polish his impressively thick news pencil. For the record, the following apostrophe-light cobblers was delivered from "cockhead@dickhead.com". Nice touch...

Wont comment or make a story on Barnes and Nobles thorough debunking of microsofts shitty patents and shitty patent strategy hey?????

Your all going to hell you den of thieves and crooks.

ps hows the microsoft handouts going??? you cockheads.

Lovely. For the record, the Microsoft handouts are going just fine. The Beast of Redmond has just coughed a cheque for my second helicopter, and my ex-missus is delighted with the Windows 7™ Caribbean ocean cruise liner botox freebie.

I may or may not write something controversial next week about something. Feel free to object in advance... ®
