    Microsoft has killed Santa Claus today, after an unsatisfactory attempt to restrain the North Pole-based jolly old elf from instant messaging children about oral sex.

    Although Redmond has been challenged by compassion in the past, this appears to be the first time on record it has out-and-out killed the very manifestation of goodwill.

    Father Christmas was subject to some controversy this year when given the seasonal ID northpole@live.com on MSN messenger. While mostly sticking to an approved and traditional regimen of asking children what they want for Christmas, the mere mention of pizza would send him into a provocative froth about love-making of the mouth.

    Microsoft informed us about their troubling decision to destroy the spirit of Christmas this morning.


    That's why he didn't answer anymore [C] I want my santa back on messenger *snif*

    Makes me understand why companies sometimes sack people who they catch adding easter eggs.

    Look at the good side, events like these are what keep the furniture industry in business.

    Microsoft overhead F.Y. 2007
    Employees...........$6,589,987,937

    This won't be an easter egg. Noone at Microsoft is that stupid.

    Seriously, this will just be the AI getting confused and reverting back to some previous conversation that the AI had with that person. You don't get told that the conversation previously talked about bad things, because that wouldn't make a good story.

    If you look at the conversation in question, it's fairly clear that it's the type of thing they would put in there, just to see about the response.

    I am pretty much certain that this is just a case of the AI getting confused, and the badness of the participant coming back at them and being taken out of context.

    Apparently evidence given under oath in court is Legend now.

    He also allegedly said he was going to "f**king kill Google". But then, we don't like to talk about that. Tongue Out

    Ballmer issued a statement disputing Lukovsky's version of events which it described as a "gross exaggeration".


    There's no proof of what happened on either side, but that isn't the point (and you know it).

    It's like calling MSFT 'tha borg'.  It just isn't terribly clever or funny anymore.

    I didn't say there was proof. I said that it was given under oath in court (under penalty of purgery) and I also mentioned that he allegedly said ...

    If I say that you said Microsoft are "teh borg" on Tuesday at 8, then I might merely be a liar.

    If I say in court that you said Microsoft are "teh borg", and you show the court that on Tuesday at 8 you were, in fact, not saying Microsoft were "teh borg" because you were live on TV at the time, then I would be a purgorer, and would go to prison for a long long time.

    People might lie in court, but they're more careful about it, because the penalties for being caught-out are much stricter.

    Calm down, dear. It's only a coffeehouse discussion.

    I never said it was true and neither did I say it was funny.

    I was merely pointing out for those who didn't know, that the story of Ballmer and the chair has slightly more backbone to it than many of the other anti-Microsoft stories on the internet because it was used as evidence in a courtroom.
