Not entirely sure why the Web 2.0 staples are going nuts, but frankly Microsoft is looking more and more principled, professional, and excellent.
For example, I received the lovely helpful email:
"Hello, Your blog at http://thegreatslexpedition.blogspot.com/ has been reviewed and confirmed as in violation of our Terms of Service for: SPAM. In accordance to these terms, we've removed the blog and the URL is no longer accessible. For more information, please review the following resources: Blogger Terms of Service: http://blogger.com/terms.gBlogger Content Policy: http://blogger.com/content.g -The Blogger Team"
I would be will to swear in a court of law that what ever the definition of spam is my blog not only did not Spam, it only was receiving a few hundred hard core SL fans contacts a month anyways. You would imagine a automated system looking for SPAM would take in to account if a site was actually driving false clicks to other sites, given you had, oh lets say 4 years of log records on the site.
Well Google itself says there is a chance of false positives, which is why they disabled my Google account and forced me in to a situation where I had to give them my mobile phone numbers to get access to my email.
I think we all need to have second thoughts about the Web 2.0 Cloud. And I think Microsoft is posed to clean the board against these clearly lame new firms that really lacks the professional class enable productive use of IT.
I wounder if this was simple revenge for me saying that Wave and Buzz were a flop?
