What does a schoolyard bully practicing spin control at its most fundamental level have to do with the rest of this article? It illustrates what is becoming standard operating procedure in much of the computer industry: if someone writes something you don't like, threaten to beat them up. And to cover your bases, put that threat in writing as part of your product's license agreement.
There are plenty of companies that do this, and not just in the computer industry... but to start us out I'm going to pick on Microsoft.
Why pick on them, you ask? Because it's Microsoft. What a silly question.
