It should be pointed out that our powers of horrible publicity are
pretty strong, as long as we try very hard not to use them. c.f. the
Microsoft-Wikipedia press from last week - if (for some stupid reason)
we'd *wanted* to keep that in the media, it would still be going now.
Just in time for the Vista launch!

If we're ever attacked badly enough, we could really make the attacker
deeply regret trying.
