Slashdot: Microsoft Asks Slashdot To Remove Readers’ Posts

[ Thanks to Simon
for this link. ]

Our friends at Microsoft are upset about some of the
readers’ comments attached to the story, Kerberos, PACs And
Microsoft’s Dirty Tricks (posted on May 2), and would like us to
remove those comments from Slashdot. We are not happy about this,
to say the least.
But instead of reflexively going into rant
mode, we are calmly posting the full text of the e-mail we got from
Microsoft, along with our initial response to it, so that you can
see what news and community Web sites like Slashdot are up against
now that the DMCA has become law. We are talking to our lawyers, of
course, but we would also like your suggestions on how we should
handle this situation.”
