Incidentally – it is becoming more and more clear to me that a small fiefdom operating within MSN has been responsible for much of what has happened. There seems to be an empire-building process in play and RealNames was in the way. I do not believe senior Microsoft execs had all the facts. I hope somebody is smart enough to ask the right questions and make good on this error before it is too late. I have a lot of respect for Microsoft in general and a good company doesn’t allow things like this to go unpunished or uncorrected.
