Microsoft caught rigging ZDNet poll

Microsoft caught rigging ZDNet poll in support of .NUT. It really is beautiful when they suffer from the use of their own products:

"Several of the voters evidently followed a link contained in an email, the subject line of which ran: "PLEASE STOP AND VOTE FOR .NET!" We know this, because our logs include the Web address where visitors browsed from; when people click there from a Microsoft Exchange email message, Exchange helpfully gives us the subject line and username."
