    The contact us page on MS seems to be missing a closing quote Smiley

    Anyone at MS want to pass this onto the correct people?

    Why are they still using ASP3 anyway?

    And more importantly... why is ASP Script Debugging enabled?

    Looks like you don't know how big Microsoft.com really is.

    Some guy or girl is too lazy to update the pages, or is fired by now. Who knows.

    Maybe they had it on during the 64Bit transition, and forgot to disable it, once everything worked.

    If you use the Session object to hold user state, the transition from ASP3 to ASP.NET is a bear.

    Actually "echo errors to client" is enabled - useful for troubleshooting errors in new code.  Turning it off does seal a mild kind of "information disclosure" but sometimes the error troubleshooting is so valuable that it's almost worth leaving it on.

    Ideally there'd be a way to specify some kind of authorization method to be able to show errors only to certain developers/testers, and not to the general public.
