Lawyers will not cause any problems, in the London
parliament politicians are above libel laws. 
What could I say that M$ would object to, I have a 
message for Microsoft I dare you to sue me. Today
I looked at a magazine (called SAM Revival) which 
mentioned a game called Bill Boxing the authors of 
which have not been attack by M$. If M$ really did
sue, I know they must be afraid of us and that it 
would be a big public relations disaster for them
like McLibel was for McDonalds.
