Sad because there are people that dedicate their lives to wreak havoc through a medium that is supposed to be free-speech. It just happens that if this trend continues and starts to affect the big business like this Microsoft contract in a consistent manner, the loses may justify a repositioning of the governments towards this "free-speech".
Funny because this worm has Microsoft Security Leaks written all over it. It's almost as if some disgruntled former top microsoft programmer wrote it.

I wish i could write something like NIMDA.
Its very sad to know that the strongest (financially) company on earth does such blunders. They are actually helping spread the virus. Whenever i write a program and goto the shop to copy it onto a CD...i would always first scan the to_be_copied directories with my latest AV software....That means im smarter than MICROSOFT...that's funny
at times like this I feel proud not to own .NET
