Webmasters can use the above link to help reduce MSN's search ability. Using this, you can take a direct blow to Microsoft and kick them in the balls.

That is all.

Yes, I'm sure a ton of corporations would like to be absent from a search listing while their competitors get free advertising.

Pathetic. I would rather boycott the "don't be evil unless you do business in China" Google.

As much as I would support this, I feel that it is a rather ineffective way to "boycott Microsoft" for a couple reasons:
1) most people who read that and want to boycott microsoft are still using windows anyway
2) a couple server admins blocking the bot from their sites really isn't going to do much.  Usually I would not use this as an argument, but it is rather obvious that no large-scale revolution is going to take place
3) let them assrape themselves with vista, it'll be more comical when they do it to themselves

hehe a comment to the 3)
Me and my dad was discussing MS yesterday :D and we bot concluded that they are gonna as you said assrape themselvs with Vista :) I mean (I dont know all that much about it but) it seems like one large spyware imo =)

They allready started, about a moth ago the retarded windows updater wanted to download a "nice app that helps you figure out if you own a legit version of windows and helps you get one if you dont" (yes I use windows XP :S) anyways I dont want such shit.. So I do NOT install any updates.. Next morning I check the procs list and there it is :) installed and bitching.. Why the hell did they even ask ? Deleted the DLLs and disabled the updatemanager..

Retards :D

I know about 15 people running the public vista beta (yes you can legally get it from the MS site as long as you have a DVD burner, but you're going to hate yourself if you do) and they all absolutely hate it.  They've got some of the best/fastest computers of anyone I know, and it reduces their computer to the speed of an older one.  Usable, but the operating system shouldn't be such a drain on resources.

In addition to performance woes, it also just annoyed the hell out of them

I'll love you if you port the gatherbot to linux.  That server that runs the gatherbot and enesce's NickServ is my last windows server, and the only reason it is on windows is because of you guys :P
