Microsoft is for censorship!

I don't know if you guys heard of how Microsoft has to censor certain words in order to have a chinese protal in China, but if you didn't, now you do! For a prime example, please go here to see someone's first hand experience testing the chinese Microsoft computerized Internet censorship (screenshots incldued). It's a brave new world out there!
