I recently left a comment on the Exchangepedia Blog site which is written by Bharat Suneja. You can find the article here:
The comment was as follows (not a perfect quote as they removed my initial comment, but you’ll get the gist):
‘Hmmm….I’m skeptical. But, for me, BING still stands for But It’s Not Google’
I went back to the site this morning to see if anyone else was skeptical. Poof, no comments listed.
This puff piece, which was actually just a rehash of a San Jose Mercury News piece, listed no information as to how "it felt to beat Google". I was looking, no, yearning for information about what they meant….and could only come up with this:
"…..serving up the chatter on Twitter and blog posts, with the latest updates on everything from celebrity gossip to breaking news."
So let’s review:
- I wasn’t provided any information about Exchange Server (since it’s is called, after all, "Exchangepedia").
- I wasn’t given any information about what it means to "beat Google"
- They removed my comments and anyone else’s comments who posted.
So what is going on here? And why are you turning a decent Exchange Blog into a marketing arm for Microsoft?
Full disclosure: I am a Microsoft evangelist and have been for 14 years. But I call a spade a spade. Something stinks here.
