Crackdown - New comment on Microsoft FY07Q2 Results

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Microsoft FY07Q2 Results":

Uh oh. Mini's kicked into sphincter mode again. "Protect the motherland!" Yikes.

Quoting Mini, who said "Is it such a positive for Microsoft to be so transparent?"

I might remind you that the transparency is probably the only thing keeping the flesh eating bacteria from gaining a foothold and completely consuming the host.

I was reminded by this article linked on Drudge re `Google Regrets'.

If Google, the `do no evil' company does this, what would Microsoft do? Or any corporation across America for that matter? What actually is the difference between the corporate cultural mentality and leadership mentality and Hu who shook hands with Bill?

Has anyone at MS or other tech companies really thought about the consequences of those smiles and what they actually mean?

I think Doug's response at Slashdot was the correct one and in the long term will show a side of your company that has a higher standard than that which would consume it.

Either that or you send a team of managers to China to learn how to control and punish your people. No doubt about it, censorship is really just another form of punishment control, which leverages weak minds over strong ones.

(Sorry I couldn’t CRF the previous comment I skipped letting through due to email provider issues.)
