I cannot imagine anyone at Microsoft being stupid enough to forge mail
from billg, much less in mail sent to the entire company.

I'm actually pretty impressed how little garbage there is on the
internal Microsoft mailing lists. Wasting other employees' time with
garbage email is really really frowned upon. (That's why I waste your
time instead :-) Evidently there's a scene in "Showstopper" about Cutler
threatening to walk through someone's wall if they don't stop talking
about when to use who (v. whom) on an NT build mailing list. I'd say
that's pretty representative of the culture here.

And Steve's right, that post really was pathetically unfunny.
