As usual, a Microsoft manager is trying to blame its customers for the perception of Microsoft that Microsoft has earned and continues to earn.
Microsoft needs to look within to resolve its lack of public trust and amity.
Microsoft needs to learn how to compete on a level playing field without complaining that it is being wronged by what its customers think of Microsoft.
Microsoft needs to grow up.
WASHINGTON — Only a few hours had passed after the $45 billion merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable was announced last week when an early voice emerged endorsing the giant deal.

did you even read his response? They look for indications that the cheat is in play, THEN they check DNS as verification...
Explaining something does not justify it. They should not go rummaging through my computer. Period.
