Submission + - Should we remove all MS ads here?

Invert314 writes: Is it time for Slashdot to ban all Microsoft ads for Ballmer's evil business ethics? Slashdot two weeks ago firmly established a consensus counter to Microsoft's behaviour. Each member of the Slashdot community asserted a unique swath of reasons to explain our love for FOSS and our hate for Microsoft. So now let's act accordingly. Perhaps Slashdot can consider permanently removing all Microsoft Office/Windows/Exchange Server ads on the grounds that we simply do not like the way Ballmer manages his company and treats competitors unfairly.

We can lead by example for other news networks to follow. Perhaps CNet, TheInquirer, OSNews and TomsHardware can also consider excluding propaganda from a corporation which has engaged itself in aggressive and perhaps secretive unjust anti-trust campaigns over the years.

Senior management at Microsoft should be extremely worried that educated Computer Science Majors and Engineers share the same sentiments as the Slashdot community.
