    Bit hypocritical but I'm sure he'd do it with plenty of nerdy grace :lol:

    Yeah for sure, seems to me they only decided this because whats going on around the web.

    Little to late for me to believe they mean what they say and just saying they are against it just because the people are.

    MS trying to be crafty ?.. they should know people will see right though it with the PIPA. Maybe they will change their option later if this gets more out of hand ?.
