I went to to read the story.

There was a historical referrence, in the beginning, that implies that I
was accussing Microsoft of using Linux code. The reality was that I
offered to help them with the solution I was working on because of the
huge mess that the great taskfile debate brought out.

People were pointing out that because I was exposing how to abuse it in
the kernel and that a policy of preventing harmfal combinations was not
acceptable. Since this information could/would/did spill over to the
script kiddies, I thought it was the better part of valor (sp) to inform
an aquaintance at Microsoft of the potential problem that they could see.

Only because I respect that person (at MS) did I even consider discussing
the issue.

If they want to take a jesture of kindness and twist it to imply I am
blackmailing them, Bill's view of the world is very sinical (sp).
