So I'm back from my awesome vacation to Italy and this is what I find in my inbox:

From: "Chris R." <email@example.com>
Subject: Cease and Desist BeerCo Software Corp.
Since you are in fact an MS employee, I am now considering legal action against Microsoft for comments you made on their behalves on their Channel9 message board implying that I was to bribe a govt official.
You can publicly apologize or have Microsoft do so for you or I will commence legal action within a month on this matter.
We are already perusing Microsoft on a different matter, and will ask for a summary judgment against the company for all the damages sustained by it and it's employees.
The comments in question are here:
If we not here back from you in a reasonable amount of time and a public correction of this defamation, we will take immediate and corrective action with Justice Canada (http://www.justice.gc.ca/en/).
We will send a copy of this (Cc:) to Microsoft Canada in Ontario for an immediate response also.
Have a nice day,
Chris - BCS

There are many laughable things in this sort of communication and in the specifics of the message - I will not address them in detail - but what I want to do is to publically start a countdown to the receipt of "something" from this Justice Canada thing or from mr. Chris - BCS.
So, Jun 5th 2006. It's the 9th. Still nothing.
Note: this is not an attempt to ridicule anyone publically (there's no real need for that) but I feel that there must be a point where people should own up to their words and show some responsibility. This is, in fact, an awesome opportunity for this Chris
- BCS person to demonstrate how there is something behind just hollow words. I just hope it won't be just another empty waste of everyone's time.
