OK, you have to check this one out. I still can't tell if it's a joke or if this guy is serious. I can barely type cos I'm ROTFLMAO:

Mdah, really funny and the same time sad and confusing, I think the guy is either on ludes running linux and hates mocrosoft all the way to Redmond, or he just plain stupid, I personally am more inclining to the first statement, it is like publicity stunt if you don't create a scandal you are nobody.

Yup, the more I read, the more I think it's some strange joke/plea for attention. Would a real Microsoft devotee post Bill's mugshot? It is somewhat disturbing.

Now, come one guys! Did you not realise he's not talking about Microsoft... he's talking about a completely seperate company: Micorsoft. Now, we can't really be nasty about his page when we don't know anything about this lil' ol' company that no-one's heard of, can we?

What a sad and disturbing world we live in when someone feels the need to put up a faq on picking up dolphins. What would greenpeace say? And this guy is serious, you can tell because he spell-checked. Just brutal.

Would you be happier if I populated my post with lots of unnecessary smileys? I know that isn't your site! I also happen to know that the guy that wrote the original page (not the dolphins one, the Micorsoft one) was writing about M$! It's called irony.
