Too funny not to post

I posted this in the IRC ops channel but for those of you not there...read and laugh away. http://www.msbetas.net/news/news_item.asp?NewsID=82 (This was originally posted on Tech-Critic but they have since taken the link down. I copy/pasted just in case it's take down again)

For all you "n00bs" ( no offense :p ), I will explain the story behind this amazing claim. Most of the Microsoft apps and OS's were previously leaked by Winbeta.

Now, what most of you probobly also know is that the guy in charge of these leaks is Bunnios - he obtains most of the software for Winbeta. And what was belived up to this day was that Bunnios had a "source" inside microsoft that would slip him software, and give him the go-ahead to leak it - and he would do so.

But, this story isnt really true. Bunnios, AKA Gregory ******* (as some of you know him ), lives in the UK, and yes , he does leak the software - I'm not arguing this.

However, what you didnt know is that he doesnt have a "source" inside MS, he IS the source. Now, that doesnt sound all that exciting, I know. But he isnt a coder, no; he is paid by Microsoft to leak software...

Why you ask? Thats crazy, right? Well not really, think about it. is it cheaper for Microsoft to pay 100 geeks to test an alpha of an operating system, or is it cheaper to pay one man a small sum of money, to give the software to a bunch of IRC'ers, and let them test it? They complain about the bugs in the channel, and then have Bunnios report them back to MS. It's free testing for Microsoft. (the "free testing" ideal is widely believed to be true, but I cannot verify Bunnios' occupation at MS - BOFH)

I know this is big news, and im not sure what will happen to me now that I have posted this... we will see. (Nothing, just don't do it again - BOFH)

Anyway back to my story, Bunnios: AKA Greggory *****, AKA Greggory ****, AKA Toby Salazaar (removed, personal details shall remain so - BOFH) (I'm not saying any of these are his real name, because they're not) is paid by Microsoft to leak the software.

And the ONLY reason i can post this, is because they cant keep moving him from lab to lab, so, they have cut him off. Thus; no more Winbeta leaks... We will miss your releases. (or not - BOFH).

In future, Chris, I'd appreciate it if you cleared posts like this through me first.

Apology to Bunnios - Thursday, November 28, 2002 at 13:42 Posted by BOFH

Since the post made earlier today by csabo2, a lot of controversy has been caused over these claims made against Bunnios's character.

I have removed the post, and now feel necessary to apologise - in full - to Bunnios. Many of the statments made were false (or at least un-verified), and whether or not they were aimed as such, they detracted from his public image and tarnished his reputation.

I would like to make it clear that Bunnios, AKA Gregg, is one of the people that I respect the most on IRC and other digital communities, and have - in the past -spent countless hours working with him to prove and disprove rumours that have sprung up around news on the net.

I'm very disappointed that a post of "The Winbeta Story"'s nature appeared on my own site, especially when it was not cleared through me first. In my opinion, speculative posts about software and hardware is ok, but degrading and insulting posts against a person's character I do not find acceptable.

I apologise - once again - to Gregg and his associates, and urge everyone who might have read the previously posted article to discount the comments within. Gregg is a man of integrity, and I wish you all to continue to view him as so.

That's it.

Peace,
BOFH
