Microsoft Tries to Pull Material off Slashdot

from the more-questions dept

I’m sure all the Slashdot readers already know about this one, but it’s worth posting anyway. It seems that Microsoft has asked Slashdot to remove some postings which they say contains confidential information. Slashdot has been trying to figure out what to do. Of course, once the information is out, it’s going to be hard to take it away again. This is definitely another tricky legal question. How do people feel about this? Is Microsoft just being pushy, or do they have a real claim here?

Uh, yeah. I thought it was really funny when I read the MS email to slashdot and it actually linked all the offending comments for the convenience of the slashdot community to go look up in case they’d missed it the first time… I actually thought it was some sort of well-written prank b/c “how could MS be so dumb?” Oh wait. Nevermind….
