Default Microsoft Responds to the Evolution of Online Communities

Date 5/4/2010
Starting in early summer 2010, Microsoft will begin progressively closing down the Microsoft public newsgroups to enrich conversations in the rapidly-growing forum platform. This decision is in response to worldwide market trends and evolving customer needs.

Microsoft continues to invest in forums to reduce customer effort, consolidate community venues and make it easier for active contributors to retain their influence. Forums provide a healthy community environment with less spam and make answers easier to find by customers and search engines. Additionally, forums offer a better user and off-topic management platform that will improve customer satisfaction by facilitating discussions in a clean space.

We understand that some newsgroups are still active, and important to the community. In the coming days and weeks, we will be rolling out tools and resources to minimize disruption to the community discussions.

We are working diligently on providing additional resources and information in local languages later this week. In the meantime, please refer to the official Microsoft Newsgroup website http://www.microsoft.com/communities...s/default.mspx concerning this issue. The Microsoft Newsgroup website will be made available in additional languages in the next few days.

What a load of double-speak.

Microsoft is closing down newsgroups to "enrich" conversations.

Well, that's what you think.

This newsgroup and many other microsoft.* newsgroups will still be alive
and functioning on the world-wide usenet long after you pull the plug on
your server MicroShaft.

May you and your lawyers rot in hell Balmer. I will continue to copy,
upload and download your products at will, and will continue to use your
EULA's as toilet paper.

Microsoft continues to invest in forums to reduce customer effort,


Invest in my as.s MicroShaft!

Forums provide a healthy community environment with less spam


If you can't even keep miscreants from using your own servers to post
spam, then why should we trust your programming talent to create
compentent operating system software?

and make answers easier to find by customers and search engines.


Why don't you create operating systems that actually work and don't need
such extensive support - support that you want other people to provide
FREE to end users?

Additionally, forums offer a better user and off-topic management
platform that will improve customer satisfaction by facilitating
discussions in a clean space.


What a load of horse shyt. It's called control, and you don't have it
with usenet. That's the bottom line MicroShyt.

In the coming days and weeks, we will be rolling out tools and
resources to minimize disruption to the community discussions.


Rollout on my cock MicroSlap. Balmer - the only tool you should be
handling is my dick.

We are working diligently on providing additional resources and
information


Just as you have always been working diligently, to keep spam out of
these groups?

I want you to work diligently on my cock, because that's the only thing
your qualified to do.

Is it possible for you to compose coherent sentences in english?

You are such a stupid fool. You have no idea how usenet works.

But that's a good thing, because when microsoft removes this win-98
newsgroup, both you and MEB will disappear and the rest of us that use
other servers will still be here.
