    Unsolicited commercial posting from an employee of MS.
    Looks like spam to me, BG has declared war on spam, you will be taken out
    and shot in the morning.
    Any last requests :)

  3. 1. Please explain the "commercial" aspect to me - the information is
    security-related and is not touting for "commercial" business
    2. I would assume that 99% of nz.comp first posts are "unsolicited"
    3. Please tell me your tongue was planted firmly in your cheek :)

    Well cheers for that Brett, I can be a bit abrasive at times, but try not
    to be too offensive, some times I fail :)

  7. It seems like Wed, 10 Nov 2004 12:54:10 +1300 was when Bret
    I think it was more news than a commercial posting. After all, it
    wasn't forcing me to buy anything was it?
    PS - If you don't like the post, could you please snip it when you
    reply? Thanks.
