For all I can tell, he is a Webmaster who is sick and bored of his daytime
job. So, aggravating some groups *could* make him a centre of attention, for
all the wrong reasons. I refuse to play along his script, so I no longer
reply to him. Others reply whenever he becomes a drama queen or states
out-of-the-FUD-book lies, which are damaging if left unfalsified in the

I'd like to push in a little addendum: I think a point worth making is that
Microsoft are learning from the Open Source development model. By embracing
it, they immediately acknowledge its value and endorse such tactics.
Allowing the end-user to submit wishlist items *and* keep track of progress
(as opposed to blind E-mails and contact forms) is something they will never
get right because there is no access to the source code. You want binaries?
No? That's the end of the relationship.
