" that, if I wasn't one of the founding members and staunchest supporter of the anti-facebook international movement.
I wish you the best success, even if I believe yours to be a pipe dream at best. M$ has time and time again shown in the past to be deaf and unmoved by outside pressures and requests. They believe to be the Almighty's personal gift to undeserving lowly PC users worldwide, and is their firm belief WE should follow THEM no matter what their fancy is this week around, not the other way around, NEVER the other way around.
The fact that we DARED rebel to their SACRED will about Flight has surely moved them into HOLY WRATH mode, and they will NEVER accept giving us what we want in exchange of our uprising. It would be a terminal loss of honor and face for them, and above all an admission NOT TO BE superior to us, miserable common rabble, and that would be UNBEARABLE to them and their worldview.
Get real, people. I am amongst the less pleased by the situation, yet it is indisputable that try to convince M$ to do ANYTHING they are stubbornly set not to do, even be this a thing that would be clearly best for them, is a mere Sisyphean task akin to try and drain up the Atlantic Ocean to make the finding of new oil wells easier. :-/
There is no such a thing as overkill. Only unworthy targets.
