"Trojan horse", you say? I thought Trojans were a Microsoft issue. A
conspiracy theorist would reckon that Microsoft had planted someone in the
company to wreak havoc and fire the most valued staff. "Conspiracity
theorists", I said.
Come to consider Munchkins (Wintrolls) whom Microsoft pay to come to this
groups and, quite evidentally, drive away some regular readers who seek a
forum without lies and disruptions. For a fact, Microsoft did it before and
they may be doing it at present.
