Firstly I would like to say thank you. Theres a new (or more likely old) poster who has started to fudge facts on the Microsoft Watch site with the usual lies and insults that we all know by now. It follows the set routine: Target the most anti-Microsoft poster on the thread, throw insults, create a couple of different names and then flood the thread with meaningless rubbish which would look childish on even a forum meant for under 15s.
This “new” addition to Microsoft Watch though needs to be thanked. Im not going to link and expose those posts here this time however, as they are just so silly. What I would like to thank this particular poster for is their tactics. For some reason they decided to link their handle to my website, I dont know if that was a ploy to try to convince certain posters on the Microsoft Watch site that they were me, or if it was just done for devilment, however as a result, Im getting many more hits coming from the MS Watch site and some nice emails from new readers of this site.
Thanks everyone. I hope you enjoy a lighthearted take on a serious subject with this post.
Right, onto the latest news. Our first link follows on from yesterdays “unfortunate” Microsoft summary and its a report on lower sales and alleged layoffs at the mighty Microsoft. It is reporting that Microsoft has suffered a 41% drop in sales and job cuts. You can visit that linking by clicking http://www.vnunet.com/vnunet/news/2234739/microsoft-staff-brace-major-job
Next up. seen Terminator 3? Thought that it was the weakest of the Terminator films? Well it looks like some of its predictions of a mad super computer taking over the world have some truth (in a Blue Screen of Death and malware way kind ofcourse) Click here and read about how Microsoft software has allegedly crashed Royal Navy communication systems. http://www.itwire.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=22716&Itemid=53
Ok, still with me? Not content with trying to silence the Royal Navy, this evil T3 style AI that is alleged to have brought down the Navy, is also trying to send information to Russia.

To the silly poster who linked here on their handle. I hope you enjoy this article, its dedicated to you. For everyone else, you can find the sillyness on the Microsoft Watch site yourself (its very obvious) and I ask that you keep sending in the emails with examples of other posters who think they can distort the truth with these type of tactics.
