Wow... I like the register, but this really ticks me off. C9 is supposed to be somewhere MS people can let their hair down (so to speak), not somewhere where their comments are 'offical' Microsoft stuff... The fact that they take comments that where made in fun and without thought and used them in this serious context kind of takes away from C9.

Each time this happens C9 will lose its real touch until we end up with a corp. monster, where MS staff has to run posts past the (evil) MS layers... sigh
