Microsoft Pulls Blog

I woke up to this story on Slashdot: a controversial Chinese journalist has his First Amendment rights trampled by Microsoft, out of deference to offended readers -- in China. OK, so now we know: Microsoft is not really an American company. I'm not especially surprised to learn this. Only a few big companies have the guts to play by the rules, when it comes to upholding freedom and democracy.
