1: No, it is still free as you said, it's still spam. Adverts are due
elsewhere not here.

2: No it's still SPAM. I'm certainly not cool, I never will be and accept
that I'm going to be a geek forever... Your idea is to sell a product,
service or to promote such in a free venue, the method is still SPAM. This
is about Windows 2k Security issues... Nothing more, nothing less. Is your
company owned by Microsoft? Yes. Please let us know. Is it not? Then it's
SPAM. Or, UCE if you wish. Regardless of the outcome of said products this
is not a beta forum for your amusement or use unless I missed something in
the code of conduct. It has nothing to do with ways of thinking, it has to
do with obeying the rules set forth by the admin, in this case it's
Microsoft. That, unless I'm mistaken, is on the top ten list of every admin.
If we could just get the user to listen....


Signature changed for a moment of silence.
Rest well Alex and we'll see you on the other side.
