The above quoted statements are indicative of a strong anti-MS feeling. I do not share those views.

I use and have used MS software since Windows 2.11. I am a firm believer in using the right tool for the job, whatever that job may happen to be.

My frustration at being unable to extract information from MSN with regards to this incident could just as easily be directed at the owners of
"ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Chat, Trillian, Internet Relay Chat . . . .". Should that have been the case, I would not have abandoned that communication tool either.

I get the idea that you would not be making similar comments if the incident had occurred with ICQ. You do not like MS. Please do not use this forum to attempt to spread your philosophy.

Thank you
