Week of May 9, 2002

The following letter is a creation of Microsoft Word 10. Microsoft proves herewith that they really understand what lies at the core of Internet technology. The letter has no content whatsover - it is supposed to be an 'empty reply'. Everything here is pure unadulterated junk the Microsoft brainiacs in their wisdom add to each and every email letter they send out. The drain on SMTP resources is staggering.

Do the math yourself. Multiply the number of idiots using this email system by the number of letters they send by five for an approximation of the overhead - and your total is the number of 'letters' their junk represents, the total additional overload on the Internet mail system as a direct result of this foolishness.

Thank you Microsoft. Thank you for polluting our email channels with junk so our ISPs have to raise their prices so we have to pay more all the time. Thank you very much.
