Hey who honestly is the dumb one? Is it a company who is just out to make money on people who are computer illiterate?Or is the user behind the box who thinks he needs certain things to better his/her life?People are suckered daily and will always be suckered.

Who the dumb one is or not is not what this discussion is about. Clearly the author of the article is trying to point out that Microsoft is not behaving ethical by not upgrading their subscription service to something that makes it worth the charge. And that was picked up in this thread here, too. Of course you are entitled to disagree and state that Microsoft behave correctly. That may be controverse, but on topic. However pulling an irrelevancy out of the air, just to declare one's favourite notion about how the world works is merely sidetracking the discussion.

Or perhaps he is just trying to build his post count by dredging up old relatively unsubstantial threads. He also seems to have other probs as well. Ref; http://www.spywarewarrior.com/search.php?search_author=Jason+Macendale
