I was catching up on the weblogs feeds this morning and ran across a couple of articles where people were worried about the influx of MSFT people from GotDotNet to weblogs.asp.net.
The main concerns are that the blogs on weblogs.asp.net will somehow become editorialized. I wanted to confirm that I’ve personally received email from Bill (Gates that is) that all blog entries must now be reviewed by Microsoft legal, the Microsoft board, as well as every member of the ma
By the way…I’m kidding!!!
I’ve also read some negative comments about the domain ‘weblogs.asp.net’. The reason we’re using this domain is that Scott’s .Text engine is hosted on the ASP.NET servers. We offered to host .Text/weblogs.asp.net for free so everyone could continue using Scott’s great blogging engine and so more people could join. Believe it or not, servers, bandwidth, software, etc. still costs money – we want to see this community continue to grow and thrive without Scott having to pick up the tab each month!
There have also been some concerns about posting criticism of MSFT products.
I hope that helps to answer some of the questions – also please give a warm welcome to our friends from GotDotNet as they move their blogs here.
