Why are there always haters.

Neowin was first with the news, end of. And Neowin reported it to Microsoft. That may not be important to you nay-sayers out there... but for a website such as Neowin that is passionate about what it does, that is ****ing amazing for them to be on the national news. A MASSIVE profile boost.

You wouldn't be complaining if it was your website or whatever. So quit moaning. It's a good thing, as it will boost Neowins' profile.

Sheesh... :no:

PS. Quick note for mods, sorry for venting but some people really have nothing better to do than troll!

Times Online has an article about the Hotmail 'security breach' mentioning Neowin up as well.

Good stuff.
