Re: Microsoft Windows Help Centre Handles Malformed Escape Sequences Incorrectly

Consequently, in my humble opinion I think there should be less focus on the emotional interaction between Microsoft 
and Travis' findings.  Of course it's easy for me to assert this; when I wake up in the morning I don't have the same 
challenges of wading through a soup of emotional fog and displacing the priority of actual vulnerabilities in favor of 
emotional interaction with Microsoft.

While it's fun to be a Microsoft apologist, and even more fun to be ruled by emotion, I would be ashamed to have 
published what Susan did.  Even more shaming is the call to arms which you so eagerly answered only to appear as 
foolish as Susan herself.

It's hard to tell who the trolls are, perhaps Susan is indeed a troll, and decided to fork the conversation about 
actual vulnerabilities and security events and derail them by introducing drivel about interacting with Microsoft.

I believe this may be one of the disadvantages of an unmoderated list, perhaps it encourages or enables others to treat 
it like a social networking site.

In my humble opinion, he could have waited a couple more days just in case Microsoft decided to do the unprecedented.
In which case, I progressive change of policies at Microsoft are better than a couple of users getting hacked from pron 
sites...


Cheers.
