Nick asked me if they "caught the guy who hacked the dll." I said, yes, and that's my mistake for skimming his post and not thinking about exactly what he was asking. Sorry.

I do believe in antitrust laws. Who told you otherwise? But the fact is, the DOJ hasn't come to a conclusion about whether or not Microsoft has broken the law. I know I already consider what Fazendin did as illegal (and really stupid), but that case is much more clear-cut (to me) than the question of Microsoft's business practices. And just so you be clear, I never once said that it's "unfair" for the DOJ to investigate Microsoft. I admit that there is a question of what Microsoft is doing, so an investigation is in order.

I don't know what you're arguing about with usenet being anonymous? Like I said, you can post anonymously in newsgroups. But it's difficult (if not impossible) to create an anonymous (as in, untraceable) website.

About business ethics. We just have different values. I do think I'm more practical, though; because as I say, if Microsoft isn't doing it to someone, someone will have no problem doing it to Microsoft. Sort of the "better them than us" mentality.

The Nike thing was a cheap-shot---you know better than that. Crime for money is a much deeper social issue. And it's not like their sole reason for stealing or selling is just to buy those Nikes.
